The Nissan X-Trail is a rugged, practical mid-sized SUV which is both fun and functional. The new shape Nissan X-Trail has less straight lines than the model it replaces and, as a result, is much more pleasing to the eye.
The strong, robustness of the Nissan grille design remains with Bi-LED Headlights with adaptive front lighting dominating the front end. The chevron-shaped Daytime Running lights are striking and impressive. The bonnet arches slightly with subtle twin creases either side to give definition and depth.
Seated high on 19-inch machine cut alloy wheels, the X-Trail gives great visibility of the road for both driver and passenger. Available with optional 4-Wheel Drive system, the X-Trail is not just SUV by name, it has all of the capability to handle uneven road surfaces, with an optional 2.0-litre Diesel engine giving all of the torque you need to tow a trailer or caravan.
The X-Trail is available with three engine options, 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre petrol or 2.0-litre diesel powertrains. The X Trail is solid and dependable. Ensuring you and your passengers are kept safe at all times, it comes with Auto Emergency Braking in case you get distracted as you drive. For the little ones in the back, there's twin isofix points, and cup holders to keep their drinks and toys near to hand.
Speaking of toys, there's stacks of tech to keep you entertained while you drive. The Nissan Connect Evo Touchscreen navigation and entertainment system is easy to synchronise to your smartphone, incorporating ApplePlay and Android Auto compatibility.
Inside, the cavernous cabin has ample legroom for all passengers. Convenience has been prioritised too. With heating/cooling cupholders to keep drinks at the optimal temperature whatever the weather. For dog owners there's an accessory pack which includes X-Trail branded dog bed, hanging organiser and a ramp for the older dogs.
If you have a family, you'll probably find you have your hands full most of the time. Remote tailgate closing operated from the fob makes getting the kids into the pushchair that little bit easier. There's plenty of room in the back for the pushchair, dogs or a whole camping trip worth of kit. With a seats-up boot capacity of 550-litres, extending to 1,982-litres you'll never lack for space. In case you need it, there's also loads of discreet under-floor storage in the boot, large enough for a laptop, to stow your valuables away from prying eyes.
