The X-Trail, Nissan’s impressive family crossover has just received a makeover. This practical, capacious, and comfortable SUV is as easy to drive as ever, comes extremely well-equipped and boasts efficient engine options.
The latest X-Trail is a super-stylish family cruiser that looks as at home in the city as it does in the countryside. The car features a number of striking features as standard, such as lightweight and eye-catching 17-inch alloy wheels that help to make it a very efficient vehicle. LED daytime running lights and LED tail lights are included with all models too, ensuring that the X-Trail is always visible – and emits a distinctive light signature.
The X-Trail is available in Visia, Acenta, N-Vision and Tekna trims. Acenta grades add automatic headlights and windscreen wipers, a panoramic sunroof, a leather steering wheel, an upgraded sound system and front and rear parking sensors. N-Vision trims feature, among other things, 19-inch alloys, a power-operated tailgate, an enhanced seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system, satellite navigation and Autonomous Emergency Braking. Tekna grades, meanwhile, come with LED adaptive headlights, quilted leather seats that are also electrically adjustable, a Bose audio system and additional driver aids such as Blind-spot Monitoring.
Technology and comfort
Entry-level Visia trims feature a five-inch colour touchscreen display, providing access tothe car’s four-speaker sound system, complete with DAB digital radio and a CD player. Bluetooth® connectivity is a standard inclusion too, enabling audio streaming from compatible devices, as well as hands-free telephone communication.
The car comfortably seats five adults, providing plenty of head- and leg-room in the front two compartments. Larger families have the option to include a third row of seats, which is perfect for transporting smaller passengers. The driver, meanwhile, benefits from lots of
seating and steering wheel adjustability. The X-Trail’s cabin provides a serene environment, with exterior noises, such as wind, effectively kept at bay.
The new X-Trail’s interior is highly configurable too, allowing for up to 18 different set-ups. With all seats in place, boot capacity is 550 litres. Cargo capacity rises to 1,982 litres with all but the front row folded.
Regardless of which engine you select, the new X-Trail can handle rural and urban environments with equal ease. A 1.6-litre 163bhp petrol engine is included as standard with Visia trims, managing up to 45.6mpg and a 145g/km CO2emission figure. The greenest option, a 1.6-litre 130bhp diesel unit, returns as much as 57.6mpg and produces emissions as low as 129g/km.
Safety and security
Euro NCAP have awarded the new X-Trail a full-five star crash-test rating, and all grades feature Electronic Stability Control, Anti-lock Braking System, Cruise Control and Chassis Control. The latter harnesses engine power and brake force to enable smooth passage over less-than-even surfaces. All models are secured with, among other things, remote central locking, an engine immobiliser and an alarm system.
