Nissan updates its popular family SUV ahead of an all-new model arrival.
Around 12 months before the new generation Nissan X-Trail launches in Australia, the local arm has delivered upgrades and a new variant the local offering of the world’s number-one selling SUV. It’s also a ’20th Birthday’ update, with the first generation X-Trail having rolled onto roads two decades ago.
Available in December, buyers will now have the option of an ST+ variant, sitting in the middle of the range and mildly upgraded with extra equipment. There is also an almost range-wide fitment of front parking sensors which sit behind the bumper of all but the ST grade vehicle.

As before, the range opens with the ST at $30,665 before on-road costs. That’s the 2.0-litre petrol with a manual and front wheels drive, though it can come with all-wheel drive and an auto (auto models receiving the more powerful 2.5-litre engine).
