Entry-level Visia and mid-range Acenta models go without a touchscreen but do have a CD player, Bluetooth and a DAB radio, all played through with four speakers. However, most buyers opt for N-Connecta or Tekna trims, which have a 7.0in colour touchscreen and sat-nav.
It’s not as good a system as you’ll find in a Skoda Kodiaq and Mazda CX-5, for example; the touchscreen is slower to respond to commands and the icons are quite a bit smaller and more fiddly to use. It’s also disappointing that Nissan’s system still can’t accept Apple CarPlay or Android Auto smartphone mirroring technology – something that most rivals have.
On the plus side, the menus are fairly logically presented and the physical shortcut switches that surround the screen also help with swapping between major functions. A button that switches the screen off altogether is another useful addition for night driving.
