Interested in a Nissan X-Trail?
Let us help you take the next step

The 2024 Nissan X-Trail sees no changes from 2023, and continues with its range of petrol and hybrid models.

The current-generation arrived in Australia in the second half of 2023 after almost a two-year delay from its global release in US-market form. Nissan describes the X-Trail as its “most advanced SUV to date”.

The 2024 Nissan X-Trail offers a choice of front- and all-wheel drive options, petrol and e-Power (hybrid) powertrains, as well as the choice of five or seven seats.

Within its segment the X-Trail competes with the Mitsubishi Outlander (with which it shares its underpinnings) and the Honda CR-V, both of which offer the option of seven seats, a form of electrification, and all-wheel drive.

Between January to October 2023, Nissan has sold 10,560 X-Trails. It is outsold by the segment leader Toyota RAV4 (24,986 deliveries), followed by the Outlander (20,000), Mazda CX-5 (19,404), Hyundai Tucson (17,935), and Kia Sportage (12,642).

The X-Trail outsells the MG HS (6901), Volkswagen Tiguan (6477), Honda CR-V (6587) among others based on 2023 VFACTS figures from October 2023.

Drivetrains

The standard engine in non-hybrid models is a 2.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol four-cylinder producing 135kW of power and 244Nm.

As for the e-Power? An explanation is below:

Its components are as follows:

  • 1.5-litre turbo three-cylinder petrol engine (105kW/250Nm)
  • 1.8kWh (usable) lithium-ion battery pack
  • Two electric motors; 150kW/330Nm front, 100kW/195Nm rear

Rather than directly driving the wheels through a conventional transmission or CVT, the petrol engine is mated to a motor-generator and an inverter.

That unit is used to charge the lithium-ion battery pack, which in turn feeds the drive motors. It’s not quite a range extender, given the car has an electric-only range so short it’s not even quoted by Nissan, but the engine also doesn’t directly drive the wheels.

The closest it comes is when you mat the throttle and it feeds the electric motors (via the attached generator and inverter) directly, rather than just suppling energy to supply the battery.

Efficiency

Front-wheel drive versions of the Nissan X-Trail consume a claimed 7.4L per 100km on the combined cycle, while AWD variants use a claimed 7.8L per 100km.

The hybrid e-Power AWD powertrain has a claimed consumption of 6.1L per 100km on the combined cycle.

The fuel tank measures 55 litres across the range, and the non-hybrid X-Trail drinks 91 RON regular unleaded. 95 RON premium unleaded is recommended for the e-Power hybrid.

Dimensions

The 2024 Nissan X-Trail measures 4680mm long, 1840mm wide, 1725mm tall and has a 2705mm wheelbase.

Boot space in the five-seat X-Trail is 585 litres (575L in e-Power models), while the seven-seat configuration reduces that to 465 litres.

e-Power models go without a space-saver spare, and instead have a tyre repair kit.

Servicing and Warranty

The 2024 Nissan X-Trail is covered by Nissan’s standard five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty with five years of roadside assist included.

Servicing for both 2WD/AWD variants is required every 10,000 kilometres or 12 months, whichever comes first. AWD models incur a slight premium ($28 and $39 respectively) on the third and sixth service visits.
