Nissan expands X-Trail range with N-Trek
Limited-run N-Trek variant expands Nissan X-Trail range with style-focused extras
11 Nov 2019
SHORTLY after releasing the Navara N-Trek flagship in August, Nissan has applied the new moniker to the X-Trail mid-size SUV, which adds a number of visual and spec enhancements over its ST-L donor vehicle.
Priced from $38,700 plus on-road costss for the two-wheel-drive and $40,700 for the all-paw version, the N-Trek is priced $1000 north of the ST-L and is the second-most expensive version in the range behind the flagship Ti 4WD.
With just 500 examples available for purchase, the N-Trek features 19-inch alloys, an eight-speaker audio system and a range of Nissan genuine accessories including a smoked bonnet protector, slimline front and rear weather shields, front and rear kickplates and carpet mats.
N-Trek variants are powered exclusively by a 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine developing 126kW/226Nm, which is mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT).
The 106kW/200Nm 2.0-litre petrol and 130kW/380Nm 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engines are not offered with the N-Trek.
Other standard equipment on the N-Trek includes a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth streaming and DAB+ digital radio, heated front seats, leather-accented seats and steering wheel, satellite navigation and dual-zone climate control.
Safety kit extends to a surround-view monitor with moving object detection, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, autonomous emergency braking, forward collision warning and a reversing camera.
The N-Trek is the latest in a line of special-edition X-Trail grades released by Nissan Australia, with the most recent being the ST-L N-Sport lobbed last July, with 600 brought to the country.
Nissan Australia managing editor Stephen Lester said he expects the N-Trek to be a hit with Nissan customers.
“The Nissan X-Trail N-Trek includes some fantastic Nissan genuine accessories that really make this vehicle standout from the pack,” he said.
“Buyers have long taken advantage of the special-edition variants that Nissan has introduced, and given the popularity of Nissan X-Trail, we expect this variant to sell strongly.”
Along with the introduction of the N-Trek, Nissan has also raised prices across the X-Trail range by between $300 and $400.
With two months left in 2019, Nissan has managed 16,312 sales of the X-Trail, down 7.3 per cent over the 17,589 units sold to the same point last year.
The X-Trail sits third in the popular mid-size-SUV segment behind the Mazda CX-5 (21,976) and Toyota RAV4 (19,732), and ahead of the Hyundai Tucson (15,555) and Mitsubishi Outlander (14,482).
