Nissan X-Trail 2020 pricing and spec confirmed: Mazda CX-5 and Toyota RAV4 rival gets more expensive

Nissan’s X-Trail mid-size SUV is available 12 forms, including the newly introduced N-Trek.

Nissan Australia has lifted pricing for its model year 2020 X-Trail mid-size SUV due to unfavourable economic conditions, but the brand is not the only Japanese carmaker to do so.

Following Toyota and Mazda’s lead, who have each upped pricing for the RAV4 and CX-5 by $300 and $500 respectively, Nissan’s X-Trail is now up to $400 pricier than before.

Nissan Australia told CarsGuide: “The challenging position of the Australian dollar and the subsequent impact on exchange rates, has impacted on the cost vehicle imports.

“As a result, we have made some price adjustments across the X-Trail range,” it said.

Nissan has also brought to market a new special-edition variant dubbed N-Trek, which will be limited to just 500 units and sits just below the flagship Ti grade.

Pricing for the base ST grades – available in front-wheel-drive (FWD) five-seat 2.0-litre manual, FWD five-seat 2.5-litre automatic, FWD seven-seat 2.5-litre auto and all-wheel-drive (AWD) five-seat 2.5-litre auto form – are up $400.

As such, Nissan’s mid-size SUV range now opens at $29,890 before on-road costs, while the automatic ST with a larger displacement engine is $31,890. The seven-seat version of the latter is $33,490 and the AWD five-seat ST is listed at $33,890.

Powering the base X-Trail is a 106kW/200Nm 2.0-litre petrol engine that is paired to a six-speed manual gearbox – the only X-Trail to use this powertrain combo – while the 126kW/226Nm 2.5-litre engine is mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission.

Outside of the ST variants, the remaining X-Trail grades move up $300.

The mid-tier ST-L grade, which is available in FWD five-seat, FWD seven-seat and AWD five-seat configurations, are priced at $37,700, $39,300 and $39,700 respectively.

As previously reported, two five-seat-only N-Trek grades are on offer, the $38,700 FWD and $40,700 AWD that are $1000 above the ST-L variants upon which they are based.

Topping the X-Trail petrol range is the $45,040 five-seat Ti.

The ST-L adds a larger 7.0-inch multimedia screen. The ST-L adds a larger 7.0-inch multimedia screen.

Two five-seat diesel variants are also available, which are both powered by a 130kW/380Nm turbocharged 2.0-litre powerplant.

Kicking off the diesel line-up is the TS for $36,690, while the TL is the most expensive X-Trail at $48,340 – both also $300 pricier than their 2019 equivalents.

Specification however, carries over from the preceding X-Trail, with standard gear including 17-inch wheels, push-button start and 5.0-inch multimedia system for the ST and TS grades.

Safety technology such as autonomous emergency braking (AEB), six airbags, reversing camera and cruise control are also included at no extra cost.

Stepping up to the ST-L adds pedestrian detection to its AEB system, rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, a surround-view camera and leather upholstery, as well as a larger 7.0-inch multimedia screen.

In top-spec Ti and TL form, the X-Trail gains adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, adaptive headlights, 19-inch wheels, heated steering wheel, sunroof, motion-sensing electric tailgate, heated rear seats and uprated Bose sound system.
