Nissan X-Trail N-Connecta Mild Hybrid (2024)

The Qashqai may be the vehicle that claims all the glory in the Nissan SUV line-up, but if you’re in the market for something a little bigger, the X-Trail might just be the answer to your prayers.

It was originally launched back in 2001, becoming available to UK buyers in 2004 and since then it has grown a large and very loyal fanbase over the years.

The latest model is on sale powered by a mild hybrid petrol set-up or Nissan’s latest e-POWER full hybrid technology. There is the choice of two or four-wheel drive, five or seven seats and a wide range of trim grades to select from called Visia, Acenta Premium, N-Connecta, Tekna and Tekna+.

We opted for the front-wheel drive, mild hybrid version that sees a three-cylinder, 1,498cc turbocharged petrol engine delivering 163PS and 300Nm of torque and matched to an the Xtronic transmission, which mimics a seven-speed gearbox. It can achieve a combined 38.7mpg and has carbon emissions of 164g/km, under WLTP testing.

Our car, in N-Connecta specification, was priced at £38,390 but the optional two-tone Champagne Silver paintwork with a black metallic roof added a further £1,145 to the final cost.

When it comes to styling, the five-door X-Trail boasts a bold, robust design without being overly aggressive in the process. It features a V-motion grille housing the Nissan emblem, distinctive front air vents, LED headlights with signature daytime running lights, LED taillights, privacy glass, a sunroof, roof rails and 18-inch alloy wheels.

The interior is elegant and modern with a wealth of creature comforts and high-end tech to explore. The main focal point and nerve centre of the car is the 12.3-inch NissanConnect Display with Connected Services infotainment touchscreen that offers access to the many on-board features, including a navigation system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, a six speaker sound system with DAB radio, Bluetooth and plenty more besides.

The supportive seats feature eye-catching cloth upholstery and can be manually adjusted, along with the steering wheel, to find a comfortable driving position. And with its elevated ride height, the all-round driver visibility is excellent.

Behind the steering wheel is a 12.3-inch driver information display that shows all the important data such as speed and navigation routes, and there is a separate panel with physical controls to alter the climate settings.

When it comes to performance, the X-Trail can sprint to 62mph from a standing start in a respectable 9.6 seconds and onto top speed of 124mph. If you’re looking for something with more exciting driving dynamics, the e-POWER 4WD version slashes that sprint time down to just 7.0 seconds.

However, our test car coped well when faced with motorways, twisting country lanes and congested city centres with lots of stop, start driving.

The road holding is confident, the ride composed and the cabin nicely refined at all times. The engine gets a little vocal if the vehicle is driven too aggressively, but other than that, it was an accomplished all-rounder.

Drive modes called Eco, Standard and Sport change the driving characteristics and handling of the car and there are steering wheel-mounted paddles so the driver can take control of the gear shifts for added fun.

The mild hybrid technology involves a 12-volt battery which is topped up via regenerative braking. Although there is no EV-only driving, this battery adds extra torque, a quick restart for city driving and it also runs all the vehicle’s systems when at a standstill such as at a red light.

Practicality also impresses on the seven-seat X-Trail. While the rear seats are only suitable for children due to the limited leg room, they can easily be raised if needed and are folded flat to the boot floor when not in use.

There is room in the second row for three occupants and the boot, accessed via a large, wide-opening tailgate, has a capacity that ranges from 484 to 1,298 litres with a handy pop-up partition that stops shopping bags rolling around.

There are plenty of storage options throughout the cabin too, such as a glovebox, door bins, seat back pockets, a central cubby with extra space beneath the floating centre console, six cup holders (two for each row of seats), a sunglasses compartment and a wireless charging pad.

When you also take into consideration the generous array of safety features and driver assistance aids that helped the Nissan X-Trail achieve a maximum five-star Euro NCAP safety rating, it really is a very impressive family SUV that is big on style, practicality and handling without breaking the bank in the process.

Nissan X-Trail – First Drive (2022)

With almost seven million sales globally over the decades, the X-Trail is unquestionably one of the most successful family adventure vehicles of our time.

And now Nissan has really raised the bar with an all-new fourth-generation model that takes its inspiration from the expertise of previous versions to create a spectacular SUV that is high on performance, style, technology, comfort and driveability. This is a family car with attitude and real road presence.

The 2022 X-Trail is available in three formats. There is mild-hybrid technology priced from £32,030 to £42,520, or with e-POWER which offers EV-like handling without the need to plug in and this adds £2,435 to the price. Finally, customers can go all out and get the e-POWER with e-4ORCE costing an extra £2,200 but bringing all-wheel drive to the mix.

Trim levels are called Visia, Acenta Premium, N-Connecta, Tekna and Tekna+ and the latest model is available with five or seven seats with the latter costing an additional £1,000.

We tested the range-topping Tekna+ model with e-POWER e-4ORCE and seven seats priced at £48,155. Powering this giant of a car is a 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine with a high-output battery, power generator, invertor and 150kW front electric motor. The e-4ORCE version also gains an additional 100kW rear motor to deliver the 4WD and increases the total output to 213PS.

It is the second car behind the Nissan Note to feature e-POWER which works in a unique way. The petrol engine is used solely to create electricity and the wheels are driven completely by the electric motor.

Performance figures impress with the seven-seater completing the 0-62mph sprint in a creditable 7.2 seconds and topping out at 111mph, while delivering a combined 43.1-43.8mpg and carbon emissions of 146-148g/km.

New X-Trail has a bold, muscular design without being too aggressive. Eye-catching features include a floating roof, V-Motion grille and striking headlight clusters that appear moulded within the front bumper. There are muscular wheel arches, a C-pillar that resembles a dolphin fin, wraparound rear lights, a panoramic sunroof and smart alloy wheels.

And there is a giant step up in the quality of the interior too with sumptuous quilted leather upholstered seats that are power-operated and can be heated, a 10-speaker pitch perfect Bose sound system, wooden veneers, white ambient lighting, a 12.3-inch centrally-positioned touchscreen infotainment system, along with a 12.3-inch digital driver display behind the wheel.

The floating centre console houses the chunky drive selector, cup holders, a wireless charging pad and e-shift buttons for EV mode or e-Pedal Step driving. And beneath this console is added storage space to hide things away from the view of prying eyes.

On-board technology impresses with full smartphone connectivity via Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a head-up display, along with an Amazon Alexa personal assistant to short cut drop-down menus and buttons. Connecting a phone is simple and the navigation system also worked well on a lengthy driving route through the Slovenian mountains and countryside.

When it comes to performance, the latest X-Trail lives up to its big build up with instant acceleration and plenty of power for overtaking. You can hear the engine quietly working away in the background, but you have to listen very hard to pick it up. Generally, the silent-running of the vehicle is a top quality and has been achieved partly through noise cancelling speakers.

The car is well planted on country lanes or twisting mountain roads where the all-round visibility is another plus point. But this model can cruise with ease on faster moving motorways and there is always extra bursts of pace available whenever needed.

The steering is well-weighted and Sport mode livens reactions up even more. An e-Pedal Step system allows the driver to use just the accelerator which is beneficial when driving through lots of stop, start traffic and there is a B mode to increase the level of the regenerative braking on the fly.

But the X-Trail with e-4ORCE 4WD needs to be a capable off-roader for the more adventurous owner. And it is exactly that with all the appropriate driving modes to deal with sand, gravel, mud and snow as well as a hill descent system to control more perilous drops. These worked very well on a challenging off-road course during our test drive.

In addition, a clever camera will project images onto the touchscreen when your view ahead is obscured. This is ideal on steep hill climbs or for spotting rocks or the likes below the driver’s view-line.

There is an impressive ProPilot set-up that Nissan says will intervene if an obstacle is detected in the blind spot. I’m quite glad we didn’t need to explore that any further. Or indeed the plethora of high-end safety kit and driver assistance aids.

Nissan has given careful consideration to the practicalities of family life when designing the new X-Trail. For example, the rear doors open to 85 degrees offering much simpler access to child seats than rivals. And even the central cubby box has a butterfly opening rather than the traditional rear-hinged lid, making it’s easier for the driver to pass things backwards or for the second-row passengers to dip in for the sweets themselves.

The space in the second row will suit taller adults with bundles of legroom, while the third row of seats can accommodate anyone up to the height of 1.6 metres.

The boot is generously sized too with a capacity of 575 litres if the pair of third row seats are folded flat. This can be increased to 1,298 litres with the second row of seats also lowered. These conveniently split in a 40:20:40 formation on high-end models so it is possible to have four adults in the car along with skis or snowboards.

All in all, the latest Nissan X-Trail, with its towing ability of 1.8 tonnes, is a most impressive piece of kit. It maintains its robust, go anywhere character and capabilities, while moving forward with the times. The e-POWER technology will be seen as a perfect stepping stone for owners not quite ready to make the move to fully electrified vehicles.

Nissan X-Trail Tekna 1.3 DIG-T 160 2WD Auto (2020)

Nissan’s beefy five-door X-Trail SUV has been around for almost two decades now and has appealed to the masses with its five or seven-seat versatility and off-road ability.

The car was given a mild make-over a couple of years back, but more recently Nissan upgraded the vehicle’s range of engines.

Buyers can now opt for a 1.7-litre dCi 150PS diesel unit that is matched to a six-speed manual or CVT automatic gearbox, and is available in 2WD or 4WD. And for petrol fans there is a new 1.3-litre DIG-T 160PS engine in 2WD with a Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT).

We opted for the petrol-driven X-Trail in top-of-the-range Tekna trim with five seats costing £31,190. This car, with its 270Nm of torque, could reach from 0-62mph in 11.5 seconds and maxed out at 123mph. According to official figures, it can deliver combined fuel economy of 33.6-34.9mpg (WLTP) with carbon emissions of 149g/km.

The seven-speed DCT is also new to the latest X-Trail and it delivered very smooth gear changes as the vehicle cruised effortlessly along motorways and B roads. The acceleration was constant and there was always plenty of power on tap for rapid-fire bursts of pace to overtake slower moving vehicles.

The road holding was confident and assured provided tight bends were given a degree of respect and there was minimal body movement despite the vehicle sitting on large 19-inch alloy wheels.

The X-Trail boasts lots of clever systems such as Intelligent Ride Control, Intelligent Trace Control and Intelligent Engine Brake – these set-ups work together to make day-to-day driving more enjoyable by smoothing out the bumps and dips and helping deliver improved handling through bends.

With its athletic styling, the X-Trail certainly looks the business when viewed from any angle thanks to its bold, upright stance and eye-catching features, including a V-Motion grille that sweeps into the headlight clusters, rear privacy glass, a black honeycomb front grille, chrome window surrounds, satin roof rails and 19-inch machine cut alloy wheels.

Move inside and the interior is clutter-free and very upmarket in its design and layout with plenty of techno treats to explore. The high-end Tekna model features the Nissan Connect touchscreen navigation and entertainment system, an upgraded eight-speaker Bose sound system, DAB radio, a USB port and Bluetooth connectivity. However on the downside, there is no smartphone link-up via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.

In busy town centres, the driver benefits from excellent all-round visibility thanks to the elevated seating position and all dials, readouts and controls are ideally positioned for ease of use. It’s also nice to see a separate panel to control all the heating systems so you don’t have to navigate a fiddly touchscreen menu simply to lower the temperature within the car.

Comfort levels are high too with powered leather front seats, heated front and rear seats, plus a heated steering wheel to help fend off the winter chill. And refinement levels within the car impress thanks to the introduction of some new aerodynamic panels around the pillars which, along with a low aerodynamic underbody, make for a quieter ride as well as helping to improve fuel efficiency.

Being a family SUV, the X-Trail needs to have all the practicality bases covered and it does with a boot capacity that ranges from 565 litres to 1,196 litres with the 60:40 split-folding rear seats dropped flat. And there are plenty of handy storage compartments throughout the car too, including a glovebox, front and rear cup holders, a deep central cubby box, sunglasses holder, door bins and a couple of trays.

There is ample room in the back for three adults to sit comfortably although the addition of the panoramic sunroof does eat slightly into head space.

All in all, the latest Nissan X-Trail is an excellent all-round package in a highly competitive sector. It offers a wealth of on-board technology, impressive driving dynamics, high levels of comfort and good economy. And when you factor in the maximum five-star Euro NCAP safety rating, it’s clear to see why the car has proven so popular throughout the years.

Nissan X-Trail 1.6-litre 163PS Tekna 2WD

In order to keep up with customer demand, SUVs come in all shapes and sizes these days with prices to suit every budget, but few are as dynamically styled or upmarket as the Nissan X-Trail.

It’s a real attention grabber especially in range-topping Tekna trim with eye-catching features including a muscular, upright stance, sweeping light clusters with LED signature lights, satin silver roof rails, a shark fin antenna, lots of chrome trim, a distinctive black honeycomb grille, front fog lights, a powered panoramic sunroof and 19-inch alloys to complete the look.

Step inside and the spacious interior is beautifully designed and presented. It is clutter-free and modern in its appearance with a wealth of techno treats to be discovered. Creature comforts include the likes of leather upholstery with heated front seats that are power adjustable, heated rear seats (second row), a flat-bottomed steering wheel that can also be heated, a seven-inch touchscreen with navigation system, a six-speaker sound system, DAB digital radio, Bluetooth connectivity, dual zone air conditioning and lots more besides.

The car is available with two or four-wheel-drive and boasts room for seven people although the space is rather limited in the two rear seats and only suitable for children on relatively short journeys.

Our test model was powered by a 163PS 1.6-litre petrol engine mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. It was priced at £32,095, although the additional two rear seats added £660 to the cost. The vehicle could reach 62mph from a standing start in 9.7 seconds, maxed out at 124mph and, according to official figures, can deliver combined fuel economy of 44.1mpg with carbon emissions of 149g/km.

With its upright and elevated seating position, the driver is treated to excellent all-round visibility and the large windows mean passengers in the second row have a great view of their surroundings too. The pair of third row seats are easy to access once the middle seat has been moved forward and tilted, but leg room is minimal.

The robustly styled X-trail has a solid feel to it and copes well when put through its paces out on the open road. There is ample power from the petrol engine and that helps make light work of overtaking slower moving vehicles and the smooth acceleration through the gearbox impresses too.

As expected, due to the shape of the car, there is a little wind noise at higher speeds, but generally the cabin is well protected and insulated against engine and road surface sounds.

In congested city centres, the superb all-round view is a real bonus factor with traffic, pedestrians and cyclists darting out from all angles and then out on the faster country lanes, the X-Trail can be cut loose with a degree of confidence. The road-holding is super-assured with only a minimal amount of body sway when pushed particularly hard into tight bends and the highly effective suspension system irons out all but the most severe dips and bumps in the road surface.

Another point of note is how comfortable the X-Trail is. We clocked up just shy of 180 miles in a single trip and still got out the car feeling refreshed. There is ample leg room in the second row for six footers and three passengers can sit comfortably without feeling squeezed in.

The storage options are good too with a boot capacity of 565 litres that is increased to 1,996 litres with the second and third row seats folded flat. And there are plenty of convenient storage spaces scattered throughout the vehicle, including a deep central bin, practically-sized door pockets with a groove to hold a bottle, cup holders, a glovebox and a drop-down sunglasses compartment.

Our car was in 2WD guise, but for drivers looking for extra grip or who want to take their X-Trail off-road there is a very capable 4WD model.

Safety systems are comprehensive and the X-Trail was awarded a maximum five stars when it was tested for its Euro NCAP safety rating. Features include lane departure warning, moving object detection, traffic signal recognition, blind spot warning, intelligent forward emergency braking with pedestrian recognition, tyre pressure monitoring system, six airbags and plenty more. It is fitted with a Thatcham alarm system to keep intruders at bay.

In a world where every other car seems to be an SUV, manufacturers need to make certain their cars have a wow factor. And the X-Trail has its very own X factor – it looks great, drives beautifully, it’s versatile, practical and won’t break the bank with its price-tag or running costs.

Nissan X-Trail (2014)

There’s no denying the success story that is the Nissan X-Trail with 1.7 million sales worldwide, but now the Japanese company is pushing the boundaries even further with its new third generation model.

The X-Trail was launched in 2001 and was an instant hit thanks to its bold, beefy, go-anywhere design and off-road capabilities.

But now the vehicle is likely to gain even more followers thanks to its ultra-dynamic styling, first class technology and flexible practicality.

The X-Trail has always been firmly planted in the action-packed SUV segment, but the latest model is easing towards the crossover section with a softer appearance that is bursting with energy and sporty prowess.

Eye-catching design features include a powered tailgate, new headlamps available with LED lights, a new LED signature strip which makes the car instantly recognisable at night and a panoramic roof. There are still trademark large wheel arches, plus deeply sculpted flanks and a sloping roofline.

In addition, the new X-Trail is 30mm wider, 5mm lower and 90kg lighter than the outgoing version. The wheelbase has been increased by 76mm and that means additional space inside the car.

There are seven seat options (which is a bonus as Nissan has ditched its Qashqai+2 model) and there is theatre seating throughout which means each row is slightly higher than the one in front. This tackles any claustrophobic concerns for rear seat occupants although leg room in the third row is only suitable for children.

The interior oozes class and the V-shaped central console houses the NissanConnect system with a seven-inch high resolution screen and a whole array of smartphone connectivity features.

The vehicle is priced from £22,995 and available in four richly equipped trims – Visia, Acenta, n-tec and Tekna. All models feature Bluetooth connectivity, a great sound system, sliding and reclining rear seats, air conditioning, alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights and plenty more besides.

Top end models can also be fitted with Nissan’s Safety Shield technology which introduces the likes of forward emergency braking, driver attention alert, traffic sign recognition, lane departure warning, blind spot warning, moving object detect and high beam assist.

At launch the vehicle is only available with the Renault-Nissan Alliance 128bhp, 1.6 dci diesel engine that generates 320Nm of torque.

This 1.6 frugal powertrain produces the same torque as the outgoing 2.0-litre version but is much cleaner and more efficient.

In fact, compared to the outgoing model, the X-Trail is 30 per cent more efficient on fuel, has 39g/km less carbon emissions, has dropped 10 insurance groups and the residual value is up by nine per cent.

It is worth noting that a 1.6 DIG-T petrol derivative will be introduced in 2015.

And with customer choice in mind, buyers can also select from manual or automatic gearboxes along with two or four-wheel-drive.

Storage and practicality is a vital factor for the X-Trail and it doesn’t disappoint boasting a double load boot floor along with nine configurations, plus a number of generously-sized storage options throughout the vehicle.

Nissan is predicting that 45 per cent of sales will be 2WD manual and 43 per cent 4WD manual, with just 12 per cent opting for automatic gearboxes.

They also believe 70 per cent will choose 5-seat models and 41 per cent will be driving the range-topping Tekna editions.

So with those figures in mind we put both manual models through their paces on an extensive road (and short off-road) route in Portugal.

First up was 1.6 dci model in Tekna trim priced from £29,995. It had 2WD and a six-speed manual transmission. According to Nissan stats, it can sprint to 62mph in 10.5 seconds, redlines at 117mph, has combined fuel economy of 57.6mpg and carbon emissions of 129g/km.

It has to be said that it’s nigh on impossible not to be impressed with the spacious interior complete with top quality materials and an abundance of technology at your fingertips.

Comfort levels all round are excellent with plenty of leg, head and elbow space to stretch out in the second row. And all dials, readouts and controls are perfectly positioned for driver usability which is another bonus rather than searching for fiddly buttons.

Despite the engine downsize, there is definitely no shortage of power.

The test car was deceptively sprightly for its size and the acceleration was both smooth and rapid which meant even winding, steep mountain roads were conquered with ease and the road-holding was flawless with next-to-no body roll.

Bouncy and bumpy road surfaces were overcome with ease and the all-round visibility is excellent thanks to the high-seated driving position.

Next up was the four-wheel-drive model with six-speed manual gearbox – once again in Tekna trim – priced from £31,695. This car sprints from 0-62mph in 11.0 seconds, tops out at 117mph, has fuel economy of 53.3mpg and carbon emissions of 139g/km.

Once more, the X-Trail lived up to all the hype and big build up. We even took it on a gentle off-road course which didn’t really test the car, but was a hint of what could be achieved if pushed.

It is incredibly hard to split the vehicles with regards to handling and performance and the sales will be determined by customer preference regarding two or four-wheel-drive.

All in all, Nissan has taken what was already a huge success story and improved upon it keeping the strength, power and versatility but adding softer design traits, state-of-the-art technology and extra refinement along the way.

And with that in mind, it’s easy to see why they are confident of selling 500,000 units per year.

Nissan X-Trail 2.0dCI n-tec+

Long gone are the days when 4×4 vehicles were just for the filthy rich or farmers needing the resources of a beefy off-road vehicle.

Sporty SUVs have become all the rage with families demanding more versatility from their cars as they pursue an active lifestyle. Add in the fact that our winters are getting more severe resulting in harsher weather and more challenging driving conditions and the need for 4×4 capabilities suddenly becomes all the more apparent.

The gritters may be out in force during the cold snaps, but there always seems to be an excuse why our roads are impassable, be it running out of salt or being caught out by a Mother Nature mood swing.

Over recent years 4x4s have grown in their numbers and there seems to be a vehicle for all occasions from the fashion-led to the soft-roaders and the full blown workhorse monsters.

But one vehicle has certainly remained true to its roots and is recognisable with a single glance. That model is the Nissan X-Trail.

It may not be the most attractive model on our roads today with a somewhat box-like shape, but that aside the X-Trail is a magnificent all-rounder that offers superb comfort, plenty of built-in techno treats, good economy and that all-important on-demand 4×4 ability.

It boasts a very upright stance with tinted windows, roof rails, a panoramic sunroof, deep rear light clusters, 18-inch alloys, body-coloured door mirrors, chrome door handles, a chrome front grille and side bars with steps.

There is plenty of built-in technology too such as the Nissan Connect 5-inch colour touchscreen navigation system, a 360 degree around view monitor, Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control, automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers, a six speaker sound system with CD radio plus plenty more besides.

Changing between two-wheel-drive, automatic 4×4 or locked four-wheel-drive is via a rotary knob and for the majority of the time the vehicle can remain in the more economical two-wheel-drive mode.

Thanks to the upright design of the X-Trail, the driver has a high seated driving position and benefits from excellent all-round visibility.

Elsewhere, all other occupants are treated to plenty of leg, head and elbow space. Storage options are excellent and the generously-sized boot can be increased further thanks to 40:20:40 split-folding rear seats.

There is extra room within the drawers under the boot floor and throughout the cabin too with a sunglasses holder, a deep central bin, glove-box with heater/cooler function, door pockets and a handy compartment on top of the dashboard.

Despite its larger-than-life size, the X-Trail proved deceptively nimble and easy to handle in busy city centre traffic and out on the open road.

It has plenty of zip and the 2.0-litre diesel engine can power the vehicle from 0-62mph in just 10 seconds and on to a top speed of 124mph.

Acceleration through the six-speed manual gearbox is nice and smooth and any bumps or dips are easily absorbed by the car’s excellent suspension system.

Road-holding is superb although I did feel the vehicle leaned a little into tight bends if taken at speed. But that aside, the X-Trail handled beautifully and coped admirably with any challenge put in its path.

And those additional cameras and sensors make parking all the simpler too.

Nissan has packed a comprehensive range of safety features into the vehicle, including anti-lock brakes with brake assist and electronic brakeforce distribution, electronic stability programme, numerous airbags and lots more.

All in all, the X-Trail may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but with a price-tag of £27,790 and its amazing off-road credentials it will certainly be capable of taking on any challenge and completing it without any fuss along the way.

Nissan X-Trail 2.0 dCi 150 Sport Expedition 5dr auto

There is a certain element of greed in human nature nowadays – the more we are given, the more we want. Thankfully, Nissan has come to our rescue.

Not only do we expect a monster of an off-roader that can take on any challenge or tricky terrain, but we want all our creature comforts too.

And in fairness to Nissan, the latest X-Trail certainly delivers on all counts.
The off-roading capabilities are excellent and with its pioneering all mode 4×4, the X-Trail will analyse the terrain as you drive and deliver exactly the right amount of torque to each wheel.

This offers the best possible handling on any given surface.

There is also uphill start support, downhill drive support and many other class-leading features to ensure road safety and performance.

The cabin of the X-Trail is comfortable, spacious and very airy thanks to its massive panoramic sunroof.

And the high-seated driving position makes all-round visibility excellent which is a real plus while manoeuvring around a congested city centre.

As one might expect, the list of quality features is most impressive and includes a leather steering wheel, auto headlamps, heated door mirrors, rain-sensing wipers and even privacy glass to keep onlookers guessing!

In addition, it is fitted with excellent safety specifications and an intelligent key system, which means you don’t even have to get the keys out of your pocket.

All in all, the X-Trail is a complete package and for less than £25,000 offers a stylish, economical and practical solution to anyone wanting something a whole lot more than a soft-roader.
