Which used Nissan X-Trail 4x4 should I buy?

Engine

When it comes to choosing which engine is best for getting the Nissan X-Trail moving, stick with the 1.6 dCi. While it can feel a bit underpowered with seven on board, it's the most popular unit by far and in manual front-wheel drive form, the most economical. The manual version also tows better than the CVT auto version, in case you wish to lug around a caravan. The 1.7 diesel didn't arrive until later in this car's life and so there are fewer available used.

If you need to go petrol, it’s mostly a case of going for the 1.6 DIG-T or nothing, because the 1.3 DIG-T didn't arrive until 2020. At least the 1.6 is rather more refined than the diesel.

Specification

We reckon you may as well stick with the Acenta, because it's still decently equipped and rides better due to its smaller alloy wheels.

Our favourite Nissan X-Trail: 1.6 dCi Acenta
