Nissan X-Trail (2007 - 2014)

Last updated 16 September 2014

Excellent drive on tarmac and very competent off road, large boot, plenty of standard equipment.
Starting to feel dated, lacks refinement, new 2.0 dCi 150 short of lowdown pull, has been trouble with DPFs on diesels.

It has a family resemblance to the old X-Trail. But it's actually completely different. If feels different from the easily accessed driving seat (low door sills will please many drivers). The instruments are in front of you instead of in the middle of the dash. And once you get going it soon becomes apparent it's both stiffer and sharper in the handling department without sacrificing any ride comfort.

Generally adequate for purpose but remain unimpressed with some areas

Perfect for my hobbies, caravaning and fishing, faultless in snow with standard rubber.
