Following the launch in September of the wider 2011 X-Trail line-up, Nissan Australia has announced local availability of the 2011 X-Trail 2WD in ST and ST-L specifications.
Joining the range as the entry-level offering, the ST Manual 2WD starts at just $27,990, drive-away (introductory launch offer).
“We are confident that our specification advantage, combined with a dynamite $27,990 Driveaway launch price position will vault the Nissan X-TRAIL to the top of the shopping list for couples and families in the market for a practical and flexible vehicle of this type," Nissan Australia CEO Dan Thompson said.
“We are sending a strong message to the market that we are serious about improving our market share and sales position still further in 2011."
The new 2WD X-Trail is offered with both manual and optional CVT automatic transmissions in ST trim, and CVT transmission as standard with the ST-L grade.
Power for both variants is provided by Nissan's 2.0 litre four-cylinder petrol engine - also featured in the Dualis and producing 102kW and 198Nm of torque.
Fuel consumption is listed at 8.5 l/100km for the manual, and a close 8.4 l/100km for the CVT automatic.
