The 2017 Nissan X-Trail ST is a common sense entry point into the range. This car offers the maximum level of practicality for the least amount of money in the lineup. We now have this mid life update, that upgrades the cabin design and adds other touches. Let’s take a closer look at what’s on offer and help you to make an informed choice.
At a Glance:
For those drivers totally unfamiliar with the Nissan X-Trail ST, it’s a roomy five seater available as either a 2WD or an AWD. The price starts at $30,490 plus on roads, and it has a five star ANCAP safety rating. The engine puts out 126kW of power and has a combined fuel economy of 7.9L/100km. This update has added AEB, some nice cabin upgrades, and improved functionality. On the downside, we still have the older infotainment system and servicing intervals every 10,000km.
The Nissan X-Trail:
Although, this car may not be as glamorous as the Hyundai Tucson or the Mazda CX-5 it has plenty of admirers. The Nissan X-Trail is very popular amongst Australian buyers that want a well priced and practical family car that won’t let them down. It then comes as no surprise that the X-Trail is actually Nissan’s best seller, pipping the Navara ute to the finish line. The ST is the entry level model that plays to the affordability angle of the range nicely. The cost to benefit ratio is very appealing, and you really get a lot of car for the money. Speaking of which, the cost for this particular model, an X-Trail ST with automatic transmission is $30,490 plus on roads. This puts the X-Trail up against cars, such as the CX-5 Maxx, the Mitsubishi Outlander, and the Toyota RAV4 GX. As an added bonus, an additional row of seats can be added for $1,500 for more passenger space.
The Mid Life Update:
The big news here is the addition of Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) and some nice changes in the cabin. The cabin still feels cavernous and even with all five seat in use, the cargo space is 565 litres. This is 20% more space than the popular Mazda CX-5, and there is, even more, space located in an under floor Divide N Hide compartment. Some of the standard features, include cruise control, AEB, push button start, plenty of airbags, LED daytime running lights, Bluetooth connectivity, 17″ alloy wheels and a reversing camera.
