The SUV market has grown rapidly in recent years, but many people are still sceptical of the class. What Car? reader Zach Naylor had never thought of buying such a big car – until a week driving a Nissan X-Trail changed his mind.

When Nissan offered a select group of What Car? readers the chance to try an X-Trail for a week, Zach signed up in order to find out what the fuss was about SUVs. He was asked to keep a video diary giving his honest opinions about Nissan’s seven-seater. To find out more, watch this video.

Zach was particularly impressed by the X-Trail’s interior space, and how easy it was to fold down the seats and fit his bike inside. He also praised its build-quality, drive and handling.

He admitted the seven-day test changed his perception of both SUVs and Nissan: “It really suits an active lifestyle. Before the test I wouldn’t have considered a Nissan. Having it for a week completely changed my perception of what this car could do. I’d buy one.”
