Nissan X-Trail Hybrid Import Information for Australia
The 2015 to 2021 Nissan X-Trail hybrid (HT32 / HNT32) is eligible for import to Australia from Japan as it was not sold new here by Nissan.
HT32 designates 2WD and HNT32 is 4WD. All are 2.0L.
However, please note we do not source the X-Trail hybrid as it has known design faults with both the CVT transmission and starter motor which develop over time.
Alternative hybrid SUV import options to consider include:
Contact us for current availability and pricing if you would like to import a car to Australia.
Every vehicle of interest to our clients is carefully inspected in person at auction, with more pictures provided along with market pricing guidance to help set the budget.
We assist with the entire process from choosing the best example to shipping it to Australia.
We specialise in direct car import from Japan and have been sourcing vehicles to order for private Australian buyers for over 25 years.
Every vehicle is hand-picked and we only source the very best.
We make car import easy with physical inspections of vehicles by experienced staff at over 30 auctions every week in the Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka, Kobe, and Kyushu / Fukuoka regions.
We start by focusing only on vehicles with the highest auction grades. But there is a LOT more involved than just basic auction grading !
Auction reports are often not reliable – we inspect every vehicle of interest in person to ensure it is up to our standard and has the options and features you want.
Most people (even Japanese export agents) do not realise that a significant % of vehicles in Japan are bought and sold by Japanese dealers for a quick profit between different auctions. If you are not aware of this you will almost certainly pay more than you needed to for exactly the same car.
Our experience with this situation alone will often save you more than the cost of our service fee.
Our import agent service includes a pre-check for past auction records using JCHC, at no cost to you. This allows us to rule out:
Cars recently auctioned and moved to a different auction for quick resale
Graded R (accident repair) cars changed to higher grades
Cars that have passed in unsold multiple times indicating a problem with the condition and/or price.
