2021 Nissan X-Trail Australian Spec

Nissan’s popular X-TRAIL has been treated to an array of major updates for MY21, delivering the most compelling package ever for one of the world’s most popular SUVs.

The Nissan X-TRAIL is available with 2.0-litre and 2.5-litre petrol engines, alongside a 2.0- litre turbo-diesel power unit.

The 2.0-litre petrol engine boasts 106kW of power and 200Nm of torque while the more powerful 2.5-litre alternative has 126kW of power and 226Nm of torque.

The 2.0-litre turbo-diesel has 130kW of power and an impressive 380Nm of torque from only 2,000rpm. Not only does this deliver strong acceleration but also excellent fuel economy.

The 2WD-only 2.0-litre powered X-TRAIL ST uses a smooth-shifting six- speed manual transmission, whereas all 2.5-litre variants (available in both 2WD and 4WD) are mated to Nissan’s Xtronic CVT with manual mode (MCVT). This transmission’s broad gear ratio coverage and low-friction design help deliver strong acceleration and fuel economy.

The 4WD X-TRAIL comes equipped with Nissan’s advanced Intelligent 4×4 system to deliver excellent traction in a variety of driving conditions. Controlled by the driver using a simple centre console-mounted rotary dial, Intelligent 4×4 has three settings: 2WD mode, AUTO mode and LOCK mode.

Both 2WD and 4WD variants of the X-TRAIL come fitted with Hill Start Assist (HSA). This automatically keeps the vehicle’s brakes applied when taking off from an incline to help prevent the driver from rolling backwards when setting off.

The 4WD X-TRAIL variants are equipped with Hill Descent Control (HDC), which uses the car ‘s ABS braking system to control the vehicle’s speed at approximately 7km/h when traversing particularly steep downhill terrain.
