2023 Nissan X-Trail price and specs

The new Nissan X-Trail will be priced between $36,750 and $52,990 before on-roads when it arrives shortly, with five- and seven-seat options.

Published

The long-awaited fourth-generation Nissan X-Trail will finally arrive in Australia in the fourth quarter of this year, priced from $36,750 before on-road costs.

Landing more than two years after it was revealed globally in US-market form, the new X-Trail promises to be a huge improvement on its long-serving predecessor model that remains one of Australia’s most popular SUVs.

Prices are up – what else did you expect in 2022? – but so too are the levels of technology, and the design is notably more contemporary. Indeed, Nissan refers to the new X-Trail as its “most advanced SUV to date”.

Nissan will offer four spec grades and both front- and all-wheel drive for its competitor to the Toyota RAV4Mazda CX-5, Mitsubishi Outlander (which shares its underpinnings), Kia Sportage, Hyundai Tucson and Subaru Forester.

Pricing

The two base grades, ST and ST-L, come as standard with front-wheel drive (2WD) and five seats. Each has the option of all-wheel drive (AWD) and seven seats for about $3000 extra combined. There are no seven-seat, 2WD grades any more.

The flagship Ti and Ti-L grades are all AWD by default, but only come with five seats. Confused?

Drivetrains

There’s just the one engine available: a 2.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol four-cylinder producing 135kW of power and 6000rpm and 244Nm at 3600rpm.

Those outputs are up 9kW and 18Nm over the old model, and towing capacity is up by 500kg to 2000kg braked.

The new ‘multi-mode’ on-demand AWD option has selectable Eco, Standard and Sport modes plus five different traction modes and algorithms to prime the drivetrain and stability control for bitumen, dirt, ice and snow. There’s also a hill-descent control function.

Fuel economy

No official figure is available. The closely related Mitsubishi Outlander uses between 7.5 litres per 100km and 8.1L/100km depending on spec grade with the same engine.

The fuel tank is 55L.

Next year, the X-Trail e-Power hybrid will arrive, reducing fuel use.

Dimensions and chassis

Underneath the entirely redesigned body, the X-Trail uses the same Renault-Nissan Alliance CMF-C platform as the new Mitsubishi Outlander, which hit the market last year.

Suspension is independent at each end, with stabiliser bars. The power steering system is electric.
