All new Nissan X-Trail cannot be faulted

All new Nissan X-Trail cannot be faulted

As a family car, there is no faulting the updated Nissan X-Trail range. It’s one of the quietest and most comfortable SUVs in its grade. It time comes with Nissan Connect and Nissan Intelligent Mobility. The 2.0 litre model feels lackluster when compared to its turbocharged rival, but that is a minor issue and can be overlooked if you value convenience and comfort over performance.

Pros

Refined, quiet cabin

Supremely comfortable seats

Nissan Intelligent Mobility with AEB!

Cons

Lackluster performance for the 2.0 litre models

Cabin feels outdated when compared against rivals

Performance     

The base 2.0 litre unit, leaves much to be desired. A CVT gearbox is standard across the range, providing a smooth driving experience that is most welcoming in urban settings.

Ride & Handling     

The Nissan X-Trail was never meant to be an agile SUV, and the updated range continues to prioritise comfort over deftness. There are certainly more dynamically superior SUVs out there for roughly the same money. It’s best to really dial into your own needs. You wouldn’t want a stiffly-sprung SUV with elderly folk in the car now, would you?

Comfort     

This is easily by far the X-Trail’s trump card. Few SUVs within this price bracket can match the X-Trail when it comes to cabin comfort. The Zero Gravity-inspired seats can’t be matched, and the extra layers of insulating materials further reduce ambient and engine noise.

Safety     

The facelifted X-Trail also scores highly in this department, largely because of the Nissan Intelligent Mobility. It features Forward Collision Warning, AEB, Intelligent Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning, and Intelligent Around View Monitor with Intelligent Object Detection, most of which are only available in premium or luxury vehicles. The fact that the X-Trail comes with these is nothing short of spectacular.

Space     

Non-hybrid models have the benefit of a third-row seat, which accommodates two children at best. Adults will struggle to fit comfortably at the back, but it’s fairly useable and bearable short trips. One of the most important factors to consider when buying a car, is versatility. Whether you’re zooming through the city or off-roading to your holiday destination, your vehicle needs to keep you safe and comfortable, while at the same time sporting good looks.

It is spacious, fuel efficient, safe, and provides all the necessities for a comfortable journey, with the added benefit of being able to venture off-road.

The new Nissan X-Trail is intelligent, efficient and attractive, while offering the same torque with less bulk, making it safer than any of its predecessors.

Its streamlined aerodynamic design, resembles the Qashqai. It has a strong presence on the road with dynamically designed headlamps and sharp contours.

The new Nissan X-Trail is equipped with Nissan’s Intelligent Mobility, to increase your confidence and safety while on the road. NIM includes Intelligent Around View Monitoring & Moving Object Detection, Intelligent Blind Spot Intervention, Intelligent Automatic Headlights, Intelligent 4×4 Functionality, and Intelligent Lane Intervention.
