Which used Nissan X-Trail 4x4 should I buy?
The Nissan X-Trail was quite a sophisticated car for its day, with options including a bird's-eye view parking camera, a relatively affordable sat-nav system, a panoramic glass roof and the All-Mode four-wheel drive set-up, which gives the X-Trail really quite serious off-road abilities.
All models came with anti-lock brakes, electric windows and door mirrors, Isofix child seat mounts, and climate control. Top-spec Tekna models also feature a CD multi-changer, cruise control, front fog lights, leather trim, parking sensors and sat-nav.
There’s not a huge difference in performance between the two diesel options, but while the 147bhp version would generally be cheaper to buy – and it’s the only variant available with an automatic gearbox – the 170bhp X-Trail is the one to go for. Not only is it more powerful, but because the X-Trail has a hefty body to haul around it’s actually more frugal in real terms.
