The new X-trail is more intelligent, efficient and beautiful than ever before.

Offering the same torque with less bulk it packs a good punch and is 20 per cent more efficient than its predecessor.

A more streamlined design allows it to look at home next to the likes of the Qashqai, with taut headlamps and sharp contours creating a countenance that says ‘I mean business’.

There has been a radical overhaul of the Nissan X-Trail: gone is the upright styling and off-road bias of the old model, replaced by a curvy body with accurate crossover-style handling.

The X-Trail now looks much more sophisticated and has a far higher-quality cabin that can be crammed with technology, while the large body means it delivers decent space, too.

The general consensus on the all-new X-trail is that it outclasses its predecessor both in the looks and performance-versus-weight departments.

It is designed to mirror the popular Qashqai in looks but performance-wise it is in a league of its own.

Offering a choice of 2 wheel, 4 wheel or All-Mode drive, it is suited to be capable both on and off the road.

It also offers good fuel economy for its weight and a lot of safety feature additions for an added sense of security.

Rather than angles, curves are the order of things for the X-Trail, with a big smiley grille on the front that is reminiscent of both the new Pathfinder and the Murano in terms of chromed grins.

The X-Trail is more restrained in terms of chrome, however, and much sleeker than the somewhat clumsy-looking Pathfinder.

 

Features

The X-Trail’s all-wheel-drive set-up is an adaptive 4×4 system.

It can be switched between fuel-saving front-wheel drive, an automatic mode, which only sends drive to the rear wheels under hard acceleration or in slippery conditions, or a 4×4 lock mode, which is ideal for the worst weather and off-road situations.

With a stylish new design, increased boot space and class-leading passenger room this is undoubtedly the Best Nissan X-Trail ever built!

All variants also have a big advantage over other SUV rivals when it comes safety as well, with some of the most advanced passive and active automotive safety systems currently available coming as standard.

 

Recognition

The new Nissan X-Trail was recently awarded the maximum Five-Star safety rating from EuroNCAP, making it one of the safest crossover SUVs in the market.

On front impact tests, the passenger compartment remained solid and the dummy readings showed that the knees and legs of the passengers and driver were kept intact.

Side impact tests also scored high as the protective shells did their job in restraining and minimising the risk of head and overall body injury from the vehicle’s interior.

Child protection also scored well during testing as dummy readings displayed maximum points in safeguarding 18-month old infants.

Wrapping up the test, the X-Trail also marked high points for the protection of its bumper to pedestrians’ legs in an event of an accident.
