2023 Nissan X-Trail price and specs

The long-awaited fourth-generation Nissan X-Trail finally arrived in Australia in the fourth quarter of last year, priced from $37,250 before on-road costs, with the hybrid e-Power following early this year.

UPDATE, 11/08/2023: Nissan has increased pricing by $500 across the X-Trail range, including the new ST-L e-Power due sometime in the second half of 2023. We’ve updated this article and pulled it forward.

The new X-Trail landed more than two years after it was revealed globally in US-market form, with higher prices but commensurately higher levels of technology and a more contemporary design.

Indeed, Nissan refers to the new X-Trail as its “most advanced SUV to date”.

A new e-Power electrified option has joined the range. It’s not the first time Nissan has offered a hybrid X-Trail, but it’s the first time it has sold one here.

Nissan offers 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 anymore.

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

Compared with the previous-generation X-Trail, prices were increased by between $3875 and $5615. Nissan confirmed a subsequent price increase of $500 in August, citing rising raw material and shipping costs.

All prices exclude on-road costs.

Drivetrains

The standard engine is 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.

The e-Power hybrid features a 105kW/250Nm turbocharged 1.5-litre three-cylinder engine with variable compression technology.

It doesn’t directly drive the wheels, and is attached to a generator which can power the 150kW front and 100kW rear electric motors through an inverter and charges a 1.8kWh battery pack.

Nissan quotes a system output of 157kW, while torque is rated at 330Nm on the front axle and 195Nm at the rear. The company doesn’t quote a combined torque figure.

Fuel economy

Nissan claims the entry-level ST uses an average of 7.4-7.8L per 100km (2WD-4WD), while the higher grade Ti and Ti-L variants consume 7.8L/100km on the combined cycle.

The fuel tank is 55L.

For those who want considerably more punch from their X-Trail while consuming less fuel, the e-Power hybrid uses a claimed 6.1L/100km on the combined cycle.

Dimensions and chassis

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. There’s also a clever ‘Divide and Hide’ storage system to compartmentalise the luggage area.

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

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.

Length: 4680mm Width: 1840mmHeight: 1725mmWheelbase: 2705mm

The all-new model, which also shares a platform with the smaller Qashqai, is slightly shorter than before, but is wider (+20mm), taller (+15mm) and provides more rear leg room, with bigger-opening rear door apertures for easier rear access and egress.

The wheelbase remains unchanged at 2705mm.

Servicing and warranty

X-Trail is covered by Nissan’s standard five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty with five years of roadside assist included. The warranty is also transferable to another owner if you decide to sell.

Servicing for both 2WD/4WD variants 10,000km or 12 months, whichever comes first. 4WD models incur a slight premium ($28 and $39 respectively) on the third and sixth service visits.

It’s worth noting the related Mitsubishi Outlander with the same engine offers longer 15,000km intervals.

Safety

The new X-Trail scored a five-star ANCAP safety rating based on crash testing of its Nissan Qashqai sister model in 2021. The rating covers all models including petrol and hybrid variants.

The X-Trail scored 91 per cent for adult occupant protection, 90 per cent for child occupant protection, 74 per cent for vulnerable road user, and 97 per cent for safety assist.
