The modelRead full Nissan X-Trail review
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.
The trimSee full equipment
Entry-level Visia trim covers all the basics and is a good way to keep costs down. In fact, you even get 18in alloy wheels, bright LED headlights, cruise control, rear parking sensors and lots of safety features. Even so, if you can, we’d suggest stepping up to Acenta Premium, as it adds better infotainment toys and doesn’t cost much more.
The engineSee full engine specs
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.
