The Nissan X-Trail is okay, but there are rivals with better handling, comfort, interior space and infotainment systems for similar or less moneyread the full model review
If you’re not bothered about the big 7.0in colour touchscreen and navigation system on higher-grade versions, mid-spec Acenta is a good choice. It adds a lot of useful kit including dual-zone climate control, driver’s lumbar adjustment and power-folding door mirrors. You also get panoramic sunroof, but this limits rear head room so do check before you buy.
We’ve yet to try this option but, for most SUV buyers, the diesels’ better pulling ability and lower running costs make them a more suitable option.
