NISSAN says it is throwing down the gauntlet to rivals in the two-wheel compact SUV market with the launch of the fourth X-Trail installment.

A new Nissan X-Trail 2WD model enters the Australian market armed with a $27,990 driveaway sticker price for the ST manual 2WD. Vehicles are now arriving in Nissan dealerships.

The new 2WD variant is offered in an ST trim with manual or CVT automatic transmission and in ST-L CVT automatic guise.

The new Nissan X-Trail ST 2WD manual comes with standard equipment including 17-inch alloy wheels, side airbags, roof curtain airbags, electronic stability program, Bluetooth handsfree phone system, innovative rear drawer system, MP3 player input, six-CD changer and removable washable luggage boards.

Steering wheel mounted audio, Bluetooth and cruise control, as well as heated and cooled glovebox and cup holders.

Power comes from a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine, which produces 102kW of power.

“The arrival of the new Nissan X-Trail in two-wheel drive form gives Nissan the firepower to make a significant impact in the increasingly popular compact SUV segment,” said Nissan Australia's Dan Thompson.

“Throughout 2010 we have improved the offer to customers across our wide range of SUV products.

“We have upgraded Dualis, added the Dualis+2, improved Pathfinder (and Navara) with two more powerful turbo-diesel engines and additional specification, and added equipment to Murano.”

The new 2WD models build on the 2010 arrival of a visually updated X-Trail which benefited from styling changes front and rear as well as interior and specification upgrades.

X-Trail ST 2WD, ST 4WD and ST 4WD models gain additional standard equipment for a $500 price increase.

This comprises the 17-inch alloy wheel design previously available only on the ST-L and TS models; chrome door handles; leather trimmed steering wheel and park brake lever.

The new Nissan X-Trail 2WD shares its 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine with the Dualis.

This provides 102kW power and 198Nm torque and returns a combined cycle fuel consumption of 8.5-litres per 100km in manual guise and 8.4 litres/100 km when mated with the continuously variable transmission.

This engine option is ideal for customers seeking the practicalities of the X-Trail concept, but without the requirement for off-road driving or towing provided by the larger 2.5-litre engine in 4WD models.

The Nissan X-Trail 4WD models continue to be available with the more powerful 2.5-litre petrol or 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engines, along with Intelligent All Mode 4x4-i technology, 2000kg braked towing capacity (on both petrol and diesel manuals), Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent Control.
