The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

All trim levels of the Nissan X-Trail have a height-adjustable driver’s seat, as well as reach and rake adjustment for the steering wheel. Adjustable lumbar support for the driver is standard from second-rung Acenta Premium trim, while Tekna and Tekna+ trim both come with electronically adjustable front seats with memory function.

The X-Trail’s dashboard is clear and logically laid out, with controls placed within easy reach. Buttons and switches are all large and easy to operate while you’re driving, as well as positive and precise in their actions.

To aid visibility when you’re driving at night, bright LED headlights with main beam assist are standard across the range. Opt for Tekna trim or above and those headlights are upgraded to include adaptive driving beam, which allows you to drive with your full beam on without blinding other drivers.

Sat nav and infotainment

Unlike the climate control, which is adjusted by manual controls, the infotainment is controlled entirely through either the 8.2in touchscreen on Acenta Premium trim or the 12.3in touchscreen with N-Connecta trim and above. So far, we’ve only tried the bigger screen, and it's crisp, easy to read and responds quickly to your prods.
