The Nissan X-Trail – it’s going places and it is a car without compromise; normally for SUVs the road handling characteristics are sacrificed for performance off-road but that's not the case with this car. The X-Trail is an impressive performer off the road.
With its car-like abilities, the X-Trail is easy to drive and helps to make it a popular choice for families looking for a practical SUV. In addition, the vehicle has an impressive reliability record though and it has reasonable running costs.
The vehicle is powered by a choice of either a 1.6litre diesel or petrol engines and both are good, depending on the driver's needs, with great performance on offer. There are five trim levels and a choice of either two- or four-wheel drive. The diesel should return around 58mpg while having emissions of 129g/km. The new petrol unit returns 46mpg though this drops for the Tekna and n-tec models to 44mpg.
The suspension is effective and the ride is made smooth - regardless of the road's condition. Nissan has priced its X-Trail to compete effectively against the RAV4 and the CRV and there's a decent level equipment with even the entry model having Bluetooth connectivity, alloy wheels, cruise control and climate control.
Other models come with satnav, parking sensors, leather trim and electrically adjustable front seats. The Nissan X-Trail is not only cheaper than its rivals but also cheaper to run too. The latest version of the vehicle impresses and while it may look similar to its previous model the interior has been redesigned and refined.
In many ways the Nissan X-Trail looks similar to the smaller Qashqai and this is an excellent family-orientated SUV which should bring trouble-free motoring in a great package. There's more space on board for those that need it and it's also a practical choice too.
