With space for up to seven occupants, the Nissan X-Trail is a luxury MPV crossover that provides a touch of luxury for all the family.
The Nissan X-Trail features a wheelbase that is 76mm longer than its predecessor, but thanks to some vigorous restyling it manages to only measure 17mm longer overall. The X-Trail sports the same narrow grille as the all-new Micra, complete with chrome bars, and continues Nissan's sleek new design ethos. LED running lights and 17-inch alloy wheels come as standard, whilst the higher trim specs receive full-LED lights and 19-inch alloy wheels. The standard X-Trail includes seven seats, but additional rear seats are available as an optional extra.
As you would expect from Nissan, the interior of the X-Trail tells a story of understated quality and long-lasting durability. The dashboard is a mix of soft-touch and textured materials that are pleasant to the fingers, the switches feel substantial and well-damped and silver highlights add extra style. The driving position is adjustable, but you will have to upgrade to the Acenta+ or n-tec trims to gain access to a seven-inch colour infotainment screen with satellite navigation and a DAB radio.
The Nissan X-Trail comes with a selection of three engines; a 1.6-litre turbo diesel which can draw on 128bhp, and a more powerful 1.6-litre petrol which comes backed by 160bhp. The 1.6-litre diesel is the most efficient option available, and a marked improvement on the engines included with older models, as it can return a fuel economy of 57.6mpg when used in a two-wheel drive X-Trail with a manual gearbox. Choosing an X-Trail with four-wheel drive doesn't damage the fuel economy too much, instead returning a very respectable 53.3mpg. Meanwhile, CO2 emissions across the range are as low as 129g/km.
The Nissan X-Trail currently holds a crash-safety rating of five-stars out of five from the testing experts at Euro NCAP. This is partly down to standard safety equipment, such as a full complement of airbags and restraining seatbelts, and partly to the use of high-strength steel in the X-Trail's bodyshell. The X-Trail also comes equipped with the impressive Nissan Safety Shield, adding automatic Forward Emergency Braking, blind-spot assist, a 360-degree parking camera and a lane departure warning as standard.
