New Nissan X-Trail

The newest update to the Nissan X-Trail has received a welcome upgrade, with a much more sophisticated, spacious cabin, sleeker design and improved handling. Drive quality is also very smooth.


Redesigned to look more stylish, the new Nissan X-Trail is clearly the Qashqai's sibling, sharing the same familiar curves and elegant lines. Bigger than ever before, the new version maintains a sense of gracefulness and verve thanks to its aerodynamic accents. The interior offers generous space for the passengers and features a more refined interior than the Qashqai, with an elegant dashboard and an overall restrained and smart design. Soft-touch plastics and high-quality materials abound, creating an upmarket ambience.


At launch, only one engine was available with the new X-Trail, the 1.6-litre diesel with 128bhp. Nissan later added a more powerful 1.6-litre petrol with 160bhp that can complete a 0-62mph sprint in 9.7 seconds. In terms of driving and handling, all versions of the car come with Chassis Control that includes various electronic driver aid systems. On the road, the X-Trail's soft suspension offers more comfort and soaks up bumps, whilst steering is accurate and responsive. There's also plenty of grip, whether you choose the front-wheel or the four-wheel drive. Generously equipped, the Visia trim comes with Bluetooth, cruise control, air-conditioning, 17-inch alloy wheels, and electric windows. The Acenta trim includes tinted windows, front fog lights, dual-zone climate control and a panoramic sunroof. At the top-of-the-range, the Tekna model adds heated leather seats, LED headlights, and a 360-degree view parking camera, amongst others. The options include two extra seats for a total of seven and various safety features.

Safety & Economy

With the two-wheel drive system and the diesel engine, the X-Trail returns 57.6mpg and emits 129g/km of CO2, which is respectable for a car of this calibre. Standard safety features are very good and include six airbags, hill-start assist, ABS, stability and traction control, tyre-pressure monitoring, and ISOFIX child-seat mounting points. The car also comes with a maximum five-star rating from Euro NCAP crash tests.


Perfect for Families The new X-Trail provides more cabin space than most rivals and comes with plenty of standard kit that offers great value for money. Running costs are good for its size, making the car a great choice for drivers looking for a stylish family vehicle with an imposing SUV presence.
