  • 1.6L turbo diesel engine with 96kW of power and 320 Nm of torque
  • Outstanding fuel economy rating of 5.3 litres per 100km
  • Two and four-wheel drive options
  • 5 Star ANCAP safety rating for all X-TRAIL variants

The new Nissan X-TRAIL turbo-diesel is now on sale in Australia alongside the 2.0 and 2.5 petrol variants which were launched earlier this year.

The X-TRAIL range now boasts the TS and TL grades to complete the product line-up, featuring the R9M turbo diesel engine, Idle Stop/Start Technology, 96kW of power, 320Nm of torque and an impressive combined fuel consumption rating of 5.3L per 100km.~

The X-TRAIL T32 has been awarded the maximum 5 star ANCAP safety rating; this rating applies to all variants.

“The X-TRAIL is the complete package of style, safety and economy - no wonder it’s one of Nissan’s most popular models, selling over 140,000 units locally since 2001,” said Richard Emery, Managing Director and CEO of Nissan Australia.

Fuel efficient and powerful

Jointly developed with Alliance partner Renault, the Euro 5 compliant R9M is one of the most advanced diesel engines in its segment, due to several technical innovations designed to minimise fuel consumption and reduce CO2 emissions. The R9M engine produces the identical torque output of the previous 2.0-litre dCi unit and is considerably more efficient and cleaner.

This is achieved with weight reduction of 30kg from the previous engine along with key technology additions such as Idle Stop/Start, Variable displacement oil pump, Swirl Control valve and a High and Low Pressure Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) system.

The low-pressure exhaust gas recirculation system recycles exhaust gas at a lower temperature to reduce emissions of nitrogen oxides and CO2. The engine unit also features optimised thermal management that allows the engine to reach operating temperature much quicker. This, in turn, reduces friction losses when starting from cold and improves fuel efficiency.

For the R9M engine the air is drawn directly into the combustion chamber in a swirling manner helping to improve the fuel and air mix. The swirling air results in a cleaner combustion process with minimal soot output.

Nissan has been able to make the new X-TRAIL more efficient by optimising the car's aerodynamics. New aero-friendly door mirrors and an underfloor spoiler that covers the exhaust and rear panel also play their part in making the new X-TRAIL the most efficient ever.

The new diesel X-TRAIL maintains the pulling power of its predecessor, with the braked towing capacity for the 4WD manual TS and TL variants at 2,000kg. All other variants have a 1,500kg towing capacity.

Further to this, the inclusion of Noise Absorption Technology in the lightweight dash pad minimises engine noise into the cabin.
