Used Nissan X-Trail (14-present)
Review continues below...

What alternatives should I consider to a used Nissan X-Trail 4x4?

The Land Rover Discovery Sport is the seven-seat SUV with cachet. From the welly-boot set to the school-run army, the Land Rover badge holds much more weight than that of a Nissan. It backs that up with a smart interior and tidy handling, but prices are much higher than those of the X-Trail.

If you need a big SUV with space aplenty for passengers and luggage, the look towards the Kia Sorento and Hyundai Santa Fe. Their larger diesel engines aren’t as frugal as the ones in the X-Trail, but they do cope better with heavy loads, the Kia being the more comfortable of the two.
