Nissan X-trail is a compact or mid-size crossover SUV.
The all-new X-trail not only looks sleek and stylish, but also makes everyday driving one of a kind. The latest model sometimes has been mistaken as its brother, the Qashqai, though the X-trail stands a full 100mm longer and is wider and taller too, noticeable when they are parked together.
The X-trail’s dashboard is dominated by a seven-inch touchscreen interface, called ‘NissanConnect’. It has all the usual controlling in navigation and entertainment commands, allowing passengers to access their social media accounts on the go. One special feature of this car is the ‘Around View Monitor’ camera system. This uses camera in the nose, tailgate and both door mirrors to create a birds eye view of the X-trail. Although the display is a little fuzzy, but it’s a handy back-up feature for urban driving.
Its engine is a 1.6-litre turbodiesel with 128bhp and 320Nm torque. Having a smaller capacity (from 2.0-1.6), the new x-trail is 20% more efficient for a 90kg weight saving. CO2 emissions from 129g/km mean this vehicle has a cheaper running costs, and an estimated 9% increase in residual values versus the old X-trail.
This SUV is not that particular in terms of fashion. It was boxy and robust and would happily muddy its boots now and then. The X-trail has the most legroom in its class, and the rear doors open outward by more than 80 degrees.
It looks much more sophisticated, has a far higher-quality cabin that can be crammed with technology, and it’s one of the most spacious car in its class. The rows of seating are arranged in a tiered theatre-style system, where row sits a little higher than the one in front, for better visibility.
It was one of the traditional SUVs of Nissan, and now, after the interbreeding, comes the rise of this crossover. The latest X-trail is a much more crowd-pleasing car, and continues Nissan’s fine run of recent form in building family-friendly crossovers. But underneath all that, it’s still essentially a big and useful SUV. And when fitted with the optional, part-time-four-wheel-drive system – it’s still a bit off-roady.
Like so many crossovers, it’s really a road car with a little rough-road talent. The steering is light and accurate. There’s multi-link rear suspension and new electronic chassis control systems, one of which dabs the brakes to stop it bobbling around high-speed bumps.
Despite the new looks, the emphasis is still on practicality and handiness, rather than feigned sportiness. In a world where manufacturers try desperately to convince everything is ‘sporty’, this is very refreshing.
