As large SUVs go, the X-Trail is a spacious, comfortable and quiet cruiser, with the option of seven seats. The e-Power hybrid system brings smooth driving manners, if not miraculous fuel economy figures. The main issue is that for similar money there are plenty of rivals that are better at being a seven-seat SUV, offering even more space and versatility.

N-Connecta is our recommended trim level because it gives you lots of standard equipment while not breaking the bank. Opting for this trim adds a larger touchscreen infotainment system, wireless phone-charging, digital instrument dials, privacy glass and upgraded safety features. We wouldn’t recommend going any higher up the X-Trail ladder than this.

The entry-level mild hybrid engine has 161bhp for a 0-62mph sprint in 9.6sec. It’s powerful enough, but a hesitant gearbox and noisy engine make this nowhere near as smooth to drive as the e-Power alternatives.
