Marketed as the Rogue in North America, the Nissan X-Trail family has just received a new member in Australia. It is called the N-Trek and targets "customers who embrace adventure, the outdoors and want to use their vehicle to enjoy time and adventures together," according to one of the brand's execs.
The new Nissan X-Trail N-Trek is available in several finishes, including the Gun Metallic, Ivory Pearl, Champagne Silver, Ceramic Gray, and Diamond Black. Two-tone configurations are also available, combining the Ceramic Gray, Champagne Silver, and Ivory Pearl with a black roof.

Some of the model's highlights include the dark front grille, which is chrome on other variants of the mid-size crossover. It gets different protective lower sides on the front and rear bumpers with a gunmetal look, a new design of the lower front bumper, black door handles, side mirror casings and roof rails, and new LED fog lamps up front. The 18-inch alloys are exclusive to this version.

Moving to the cockpit, customers will get new synthetic leather upholstery that is said to be water-resistant. Completing the offering is a generous host of technology features, like the 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, 12.3-inch infotainment system, and a 10.8-inch head-up display.

The model builds on the ST-L, which slots between the entry-level ST and the better-equipped Ti and Ti-L. Thus, it also gets LED exterior lighting, rear privacy windows, dual-zone climate control with second-row air vents, electric and heated side mirrors, auto-dimming rearview mirror, intelligent key with push-button start, heated front seats with electric adjustment for the driver, automatic headlamps, and high-beam assist.

In the safety department, you're looking at the ProPilot system, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking front and rear, rear-cross traffic alert, blind spot warning and intervention, lane departure warning, driver alert, intelligent cruise control, trailer sway control, traffic sign recognition, reversing camera, parking sensors at both ends, and many others.

Power comes from a 2.5-liter gasoline engine mated to a CVT and front-wheel drive. The motor produces 135 kW (184 ps/181 hp) at 6,000 rpm and 244 Nm (180 lb-ft) of torque at 3,600 rpm, returning 7.4 l/100 km (31.8 US mpg). The seven-seater variant is offered with all-wheel drive and drinks 7.8 l/100 km (30.2 US mpg), emitting 183 g/km of carbon dioxide, up from the FWD's 174 g/km.

Nissan is asking a minimum of AU$47,290 (equal to US$30,755) for the five-seater (FWD) X-Trail N-Trek and AU$50,390 (US$32,771) for the seven-seater (AWD). The regular ST-L starts at AU$48,580 (US$31,595). In the United States, the base Rogue S starts at US$28,010 (AU$43,060), or US$29,510 (AU$45,365) with AWD, going up to at least US$37,590 (AU$57,790) for the range-topping Platinum FWD, or US$39,090/AU$60,095 should you opt for the all-wheel drive variant.
