Nissan has given its ageing X-Trail one more update before its bigger, more luxurious successor touches down during 2022.

    The 2022 Nissan X-Trail brings with it a new mid-range ST+ variant, and a few minor spec tweaks across the range.

    Power comes from a choice of two petrol engines, with the diesel option dead for 2022.

    Although there’s a new X-Trail in the USA, it’s not due to make it Down Under until some point in 2022. It shares its bones with the redesigned Mitsubishi Outlander, which will be in Australian showrooms before the end of 2021.

    The car priced here debuted in 2013 at the Frankfurt motor show, and was given a mid-life update in 2017. It gained Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a few active safety assists, as part of another update for 2021 in Australia.

    Pricing kicks off at $30,665 before on-road costs for the ST manual, and extends to $46,115 before on-roads for the range-topping Ti.

    Prices are broadly the same as they were for 2021, although the ST-L and Ti are $150 more expensive than before.

    The 2022 Nissan X-Trail is available with two petrol engines.

    The base ST manual has a naturally-aspirated 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol with 106kW of power and 200Nm of torque. 

    Other petrol models have a naturally-aspirated 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine making 126kW and 226Nm, mated with a continuously variable transmission (CVT).

    Gone is the 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine option previously offered.

    Fuel Economy

    The 2022 front-wheel drive Nissan X-Trail manual uses 8.2L/100km on the combined cycle.

    The 2.5-litre front-wheel drive variant, equipped with a CVT as standard, uses 7.9L/100km for the five-seat model and 8.1L/100km for the seven-seater.

    The all-wheel wheel drive 2.5-litre drinks at 8.3L/100km.

    All models run on 91RON regular unleaded fuel.


    The 2022 Nissan X-Trail measures 4690mm long, 1740mm tall and 1820mm wide, with a 2705mm wheelbase.

    The X-Trail weighs 1425kg for the base 2.0-litre and tops out at 1562kg for the range-topping Ti.

    The five-seat Nissan X-Trail has a luggage capacity of 565L with the rear seats up, and 945L when they’re folded down.

    For the seven-seat variant, the luggage capacity of the boot is just 135L with all three rows in place.

    This rises to 445L when the third row is folded, and 825L with both rows flattened.


    The 2022 Nissan X-Trail has a five-star ANCAP rating based on testing carried out in 2017.

    It scored 14.68 out of 16 in the frontal offset test, 16 out of 16 in the side impact test, two out of two in the pole test, and offers acceptable pedestrian protection and good whiplash protection.
