What is it?
The latest Nissan X-Trail is a mid-life revamp of the brand’s largest crossover model.

Key features
Seven seats, new styling and additional technology

Our view

The Nissan X-Trail facelift caters to its core market, adding new technology and extra refinement to appeal to those who already buy the car. Styling updates give the X-Trail more presence, while interior upgrades make the car feel more luxurious than before. Since the demise of the Qashqai+2 in 2013, the X-Trail is the only Nissan crossover to offer seven seats.

Engines and gearboxes have not changed as part of this mid-life upgrade, and the X-Trail is available in both two-wheel drive (2WD) and four-wheel drive (4WD) versions. Of the three engine choices available, the 2.0-litre diesel suits the car best.

The X-Trail copes well both on and off the road, and is very much tuned for comfortable rather than rapid progress. However, the changes do not address its increasingly dated image among more recent and more stylish rivals – some of which can also out-compete the car on price.
