Hello, Bob Aldons, The Car Guy here with some information from Nissan Australia. After an age on the market, Nissan has finally added an oil burner to their range. Oil Burner? That’s what the automotive journalist trade call a diesel. Diesel is to SUV’s that V8’s are to Supercars. If you don’t have one under the bonnet, then you’re going to be sadly lacking in cred. So, below is Nissan’s press release sent to the market last Thursday about their Nissan X-Trail Diesel. Put your feet up, sip that tea and enjoy.
Melbourne, Australia (19 October 2017) – Nissan’s X-TRAIL range has expanded with the arrival of the range-topping TL diesel variant – and it is on sale now.
Boasting 130kW of power at 3,750rpm and maximum torque of 380Nm at a low 2,000rpm – giving strong acceleration early when you need it most – the new 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine has 35 percent more power and almost 20 percent more torque than its 1.6-litre diesel predecessor.
Available in two grades including the entry TS and high-spec TL, the efficient 2.0-litre turbo-diesel, four-wheel drive with Xtronic CVT automatic transmission – and eco mode – sips from as little as 6.0 litres per 100 kilometres#, thanks in part to the idle start/stop feature which comes as standard equipment.
“There is still an appetite for diesel, and offering a diesel engine in not only important for us but for Nissan X-TRAIL buyers,” said Nissan Australia Managing Director Stephen Lester. “The X-TRAIL range has sold well since the May update, and with the base model TS diesel available since June, we are excited to have the full diesel range now on sale.
“With a strong grade walk, whether it be petrol or diesel, the X-TRAIL range offers something for everyone.”
Now with three engine choices, the diesel engine sits alongside 2.0 litre and 2.5-litre petrol alternatives.
Nissan’s X-TRAIL range starts with a 2.0-litre petrol two-wheel drive 2.0-litre petrol engine with 6-speed manual transmission#. It has outputs of 106kW at 6,000rpm and 200Nm of torque at 4,400rpm.
The larger, and more popular, 2.5-litre engine has a higher 126kW of power and 226Nm of torque and is fitted exclusively with the same CVT transmission as its diesel sibling.
Standard across the range, the X-TRAIL is fitted with Intelligent Emergency Braking, with the range-topping Ti petrol and TL diesel also having pedestrian detection.
The TS features front, front-side and side curtain SRS airbags, and also comes with Vehicle Dynamic Control with Traction Control, Forward Collision Warning and two ISOFIX anchor points in the second row. The TL also includes Blind Spot Warning (BSW) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW).
Inside, the Nissan X-TRAIL comes with an impressive list of comfort and safety features, with the TL including a rearview camera with predictive path technology, an Intelligent Around-View® Monitor with Moving Object Detection, Sat Nav and Cruise Control – as well as black or tan leather-accented trim.
Available in seven contemporary exterior colours and three interior seat trims, Nissan X-TRAIL starts from $28,490* for the 2.0-litre petrol with a 6-speed manual, while the diesel range begins at $35,990*.
