It also features a number of advanced technologies and safety systems, highlighted by an Around View Monitor with Parking Guide and Lane Departure Prevention system.
The Fusion of Coupe and SUV
The exterior of the Skyline Crossover evokes the image of solidity and lightness. Its long front nose, with hood bulge extending from the grille to the front door mirrors, combines with the coupe-like arched cabin to provide classic front-engine/rear-wheel drive proportions.
The elegantly curved waistline flows from the front of the vehicle through the dramatic rear fenders and dynamic rear design. Other exterior features include xenon headlights and Active AFS (Adaptive Front lighting System), high-mounted LED stop lamps, bright LED rear combination taillights, heated door mirrors and flat-blade windshield wipers.
Inside, the modern, high-quality interior's embracing design offers smooth soft-to-the-touch materials and real wood trim with a gradational surface effect. Comfort and utility are enhanced by long, raised armrests and a high-utility center console. The interior also offers a new Welcome Lighting system - the first for Nissan vehicles.
When the driver with an Intelligent Key approaches the Skyline Crossover, lamps in the door mirrors illuminate the ground below and interior lighting activates for more convenient entry at night or in dark parking garages.
Also available are a BoseŽ audio system (standard on all models) and a HDD CARWINGS navigation system with built-in terrestrial digital TV receiver. The system's mapping can be updated by downloading from a computer or mobile communications device. As the latest in vehicle navigation system design, it offers enhanced entertainment features including iPod connections and digital TV receiver.
Balanced Driving Performance
The new Skyline Crossover achieves an exceptional balance of acceleration, handling and comfort through the use of a number of advanced systems and technologies, starting with its 330 hp 3.7-liter VQ37VHR V6 engine, the most powerful in its class. Generating 90% of maximum torque between 2,400 and 7,000 rpm, the engine power is light, smooth and easy to handle right up to the 7,500 rpm redline.
The 3.7L engine utilizes the Variable Valve Event and Lift (VVEL) system to simultaneously achieve quick acceleration response, high power, high torque, improved fuel efficiency and SU-LEV certification, emitting 75% fewer emissions than the levels mandated by Japan's 2005 exhaust emission regulations.
The new powerplant is mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission with manual shift mode. Seamless, continuous acceleration and improved fuel efficiency and quietness during high-speed driving are realized due to the wider gear ratio coverage range.
Along with the responsive drivetrain, the Skyline Crossover features a highly rigid body and advanced suspension design. The transmission of road vibrations to the passenger compartment is minimized by a reinforced body with the highest level of torsional rigidity in its segment.
Advanced Safety and Security Systems
The Skyline Crossover features a range of advanced technologies designed to promote safe, pleasurable driving, including Around View Monitor (AVM), LDP/LDW (Lane Departure Prevention/Lane Departure Warning systems), FCW (Forward Collision Warning), Intelligent Cruise Control (Full-Speed Range) and a Safety Drive Guide.
The Around View Monitor system (standard on 370GT Type P/370GT FOUR Type P) includes a new Parking Guide function, which assists the driver when parking by providing a "birds-eye view" of the vehicle to help the driver see the vehicle, parking lines and obstacles. The Parking Guide can tell the driver where to begin backing in and steering with a birds-eye view and audio cues.
In addition, the Front/Rear Wide View Function allows 180-degree visibility in the both front and the rear providing a sense of safety in blind intersections. The Front Wide View Function Linked to the Car Navigation System automatically shows the front wide view when the car is stationary (at the map point entered on the navigation system).
FCW (Forward Collision Warning) warns the driver with a visual display and audible buzzer if the vehicle approaches too close to the vehicle ahead when driving at speeds of over 15 kilometers per hour, while the new Intelligent Cruise Control (with full-speed range following capability) functions across the full-speed range. Both FCW and Intelligent Cruise Control are factory-installed options.
