    2022 Nissan X-Trail price and features: Updated Toyota RAV4, Mazda CX-5, Mitsubishi Outlander, Subaru Forester and Hyundai Tucson rival nears

    The MY22 X-Trail enters Australian showrooms in December, but it will be replaced by a next-generation model soon after.

    Nissan Australia has released pricing and specifications details for the MY22 X-Trail mid-size SUV, which will enter local showrooms in December.

    Not to be confused with the next-generation X-Trail that’s due here sometime next year, the MY22 mid-size SUV’s arrival coincides with the model’s 20th anniversary in Australia.

    And the headline act is the X-Trail’s new ST+ grade, which slots in between the entry-level ST and mid-range ST-L, which carry over alongside the flagship Ti.

    Over the manual- or CVT-equipped ST (still from $30,665 plus-on-road costs), the CVT-only ST+ (from $34,140) adds satellite navigation, surround-view cameras and front and rear parking sensors.

    Of note, the ST’s standard equipment hasn’t been changed for MY22, although the CVT-only ST-L (now from $38,275) and Ti (now $46,115) are now $150 dearer following the addition of front parking sensors (both grades already had rear items).

    For reference, standard equipment in the ST includes 17-inch alloy wheels, power-folding side mirrors, keyless entry, push-button start, a 7.0-inch touchscreen multimedia system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, digital radio, autonomous emergency braking and a reversing camera.

    Above the ST+, the ST-L adds front foglights, 18-inch alloy wheels, heated side mirrors, roof rails, rear privacy glass, power-adjustable front seats with heating, dual-zone climate control, leather-accented upholstery, driver attention alert, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.

    The Ti also gets adaptive LED headlights, rain-sensing wipers, 19-inch alloy wheels, a handsfree tailgate, a sunroof, an eight-speaker Bose sound system, a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control and high-beam assist.

    Engines-wise, the manual ST is the only variant that’s motivated by a 106kW/200Nm 2.0-litre naturally aspirated petrol four-cylinder, with all others using a 126kW/233Nm 2.5-litre unit.

    Front-wheel drive (FWD) is standard in all grades aside from the Ti, which is instead fitted with the part-time all-wheel drive (AWD) system that’s otherwise a $2000 option.

    Furthermore, FWD variants of the ST and ST-L can also be had with seven seats instead of the usual five-seat configuration for an extra $1600 (see full pricing table below).

    As reported, the Toyota RAV4, Mazda CX-5, Mitsubishi Outlander, Subaru Forester and Hyundai Tucson rival will enter its next generation in 2022, so stay tuned for its pricing and specification details, which will be released closer to its launch.
