It’s that time of year when a number of manufacturers announce upgrades to their current models and today it was Nissan’s turn to announce some upgrades across the X-Trail range
The Ti and TL X-Trail
The top-oif-the range X-Trails now get satellite navigation; a reversing camera that feeds images to the new 7inch LCD touchscreen colour display located in the centre console; iPod connectivity via a USB plug; Bluetooth connectivity; CD player, DVD compatibility and steering wheel controls on the Ti (currently standard on TL). Externally, stylish new 18inch alloy wheels and privacy glass complete the upgrade.
These features add only $2,000 to the Manufacturer’s List Price of the Nissan X-TRAIL Ti – now priced from $42,490, while the Nissan X-TRAIL TL is now priced from $42,990 (plus dealer delivery and statutory charges)*.
The Nissan X-TRAIL Ti and TL already feature leather upholstery and heated electrically adjustable front seats, panoramic sunroof and climate control air conditioning.
The new Nissan X-TRAIL STL specification comprises a full leather seat trim; electrically adjustable front seats with front seat heating; steering wheel audio controls; privacy glass; Bluetooth connectivity with steering wheel controls and iPod jack. The Nissan X-TRAIL STL is now priced from only $37,740 for the six-speed manual or from $40,240 for the CVT model (plus dealer delivery and statutory charges).
The Nissan X-TRAIL TS Turbo Diesel model gains the iPod jack, Bluetooth connectivity with steering wheel controls and privacy glass with no increase in price, from $37,740 (plus dealer delivery and statutory charges)*. The ever popular petrolpowered ST model adds the iPod jack, also with no price change, from $32,990 (plus dealer delivery and statutory charges).
Announcing the upgrades the CEO of Nissan Australia had this to say about the X-Trail:
“The Nissan X-TRAIL is an outstanding allrounder.
“It provides authentic SUV performance on any surface, has plenty of room to stow your sports adventure gear and its choice of petrol or diesel engines means there’s a model to suit all compact SUV customers.
“With this latest update we have added even more value. Our diesel models were a response to consumer demand and continue to represent outstanding value for money. They also strike the right note with buyers who are interested in reducing fuel consumption and emissions.
“The improved specification package will make the Nissan X-TRAIL the first choice for those who want a wellspecified, comfortable and sporty compact SUV which has shown its pedigree over the years and continues to improve,” said Thompson.
“The STL model in particular gives us a lead over our rivals with its now standard leather seat trim and heated, electrically adjustable front seats.”
