For The Nissan X-Trail is more capable off-road than many rivals, plus it comes well equipped and the boot is big and practical.
Against Rear-seat space is quite tight by the standards of the class, while the engines are noisy and running costs high.
The Nissan X-Trail has the chunky looks of an old-school 4x4, but it also feels too much like an old-school 4x4.

Nissan X-Trail buyers can choose from a 170bhp 2.0-litre diesel engine with a six-speed manual gearbox and a 148bhp 2.0-litre diesel with a six-speed automatic. Unless you need an auto, the 170bhp car makes more sense because it’s cheaper to buy and run, and its 266lb ft of muscle makes it seriously responsive.
There are three trims on offer, but even the entry-level Acenta car comes well equipped. You get climate control, alloy wheels, Bluetooth, cruise control, electric windows and a sophisticated four-wheel-drive system.
Sadly, the X-Trail is also more expensive than many rivals and it doesn’t hold its value especially well, so it’s important that you get a big discount to offset these issues.

Good enough to make more expensive X-Trails seem unnecessary, but there are still several rivals that are cheaper and better.
