Engines

2.0 dCi 4WD
If you’re going to be towing often or regularly have all seven seats filled, this engine will certainly give you more low-end pulling power, but it’s not that much faster than the 1.6 dCi and is less efficient. If you don’t plan on filling the X-Trail to the brim with people and luggage, you probably won’t feel the benefit.
1.6 dCi
This is the lower-powered diesel choice and is offered with a choice of front or four-wheel drive when paired with the standard six-speed manual gearbox or as front-drive only with the optional CVT automatic transmission. It pulls reasonably well from low revs, but ultimately it’s down on power compared with many rivals and not very refined. The auto gearbox exacerbates this, sending the engine revs flaring when you put your foot down.
1.6 DiG-T
We’ve yet to try this option but, for most SUV buyers, the diesels’ better pulling ability and lower running costs make them a more suitable option.
