The updated 2017 Nissan X-Trail is now available in Australia with a fresh face as its standout change backed up by added safety equipment, to help make it a more sound choice for Aussie families.
As before the X-Trail range comprises five models, with the petrol-powered ST, ST-L and Ti or diesel TS and TL variants.
The ST is available with a 106kW/200Nm 2.0-litre engine and six-speed manual from $27,990 or a 126kW/226Nm 2.5-litre engine with a CVT automatic for $30,490 both with two wheel drive.
X-Trail ST-L and Ti variants are both powered by the larger 2.5-litre engine and CVT combo. All wheel drive is optionally available on the ST and ST-L and standard on the Ti.
Diesel X-Trail models move to a larger 2.0-litre engine in place of the previous 1.6-litre engine with a more flexible 130kW and 380Nm. Manual and two wheel drive diesel variants have been dropped with both TS and TL coming standard with a CVT automatic and all wheel drive.
Seven-seat ST and ST-L variants are also available, but only with two wheel drive and a CVT auto.
Standard equipment on the ST and TS includes cloth trim, keyless entry and start, 5.0-inch infotainment display, Bluetooth connectivity, six-speaker audio, air conditioning, power-folding exterior mirrors and 17-inch alloy wheels.
The ST-L adds front fog lights, leather trim, heated front seats, rear privacy glass, 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment with satellite navigation, DAB+ radio, dual-zone climate control, and powered front seat adjustment.
At the top of the range the Ti and TL feature LED headlights, rain-sensing wipers, heated rear seats, heated steering wheel, heated door mirrors, sunroof, a motion-activated power tailgate, eight-speaker Bose audio, and 19-inch alloy wheels.
On the safety front all models include six airbags, electronic stability control, rear-view camera, ABS brakes and autonomous emergency braking (AEB) with forward collision warning. The ST-L also adds an Around View camera system, blind spot warning, rear cross traffic alert, and moving object detection.
Ti and TL models go further with adaptive front lighting, lane departure warning, and AEB with pedestrian detection. The Ti also includes lane departure prevention and intelligent cruise control.
X-Trail petrol models are on sale now, with diesel variants set to roll out from June.
