Many people will consider the Nissan X-Trail to be a far sexier alternative to a people carrier. With the rugged looks of an SUV and the option of a third row of seats, it can swallow up to seven people for the school run while still cutting a dash.

Of course, while most people like the look of big SUVs, they don’t necessarily need the off-road ability they traditionally possess. Handily, the X-Trail allows you to choose how much mud-plugging attitude it has; you can opt for a four-wheel-drive version or choose front-wheel drive to keep running costs down.

It’s up against a suite of strong large SUV rivals, though, including class leaders such as the Peugeot 5008, Kia Sorento, Skoda Kodiaq and Mazda CX-5.

Read on over the next few pages to get our in-depth impressions of the X-Trail, along with our recommendations for which trim and engine to choose.
