Nissan X-Trail N Sport, Pathfinder N-Sport, 370Z N-Sport announced

July 24, 2018

Nissan Australia has announced a range of N-Sport special editions, based on the 370Z, Pathfinder, and X-Trail. These provide added value for the respective models.

They are being introduced following the popular demand of the similar special edition Navara from last year. All 500 sold out quickly. This time around, Nissan plans 600 X-Trail N-Sport models, 250 Pathfinder N-Sport, and just 50 examples of the 370Z N-Sport.

Starting with the sporty 370Z, Nissan turned to the Datsun 280ZX Black Gold edition for inspiration. It was originally launched to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Z car, back in 1980. The 370Z N-Sport comes with unique 18-inch black alloy wheels, gloss black side mirrors, and special graphics over the body. It’s being offered in manual and auto form.

For the X-Trail N-Sport, this is based on the ST-L variant. It’s available in just four colours (Diamond Black, Gun Metallic, Brilliant Silver, and Ivory Pearl), and comes with 18-inch alloy wheels in black, gloss black side mirrors, dark metallic trimmings, a dark chrome front grille, and black roof rails.

Lastly, the Pathfinder N-Sport is based on the ST-L two-wheel drive. It comes with 20-inch black alloy wheels, black side mirrors, a black front grille, and other black accents around the body. Nissan is offering just three colours, including Diamond Black, Gun Metallic, and Ivory Pearl.

All versions will officially go on sale on August 1, and they are sure to sell out quickly with only limited stocks available. See below for the starting prices (excludes on-road costs):
