About the Nissan X-Trail

Show More

The Nissan X-Trail was one of the original members of the booming mid-sized SUV class. Once a semi-capable off-roader, the third iteration has morphed into a softer family wagon. 

The current model has been around since 2013, but with a host of updates and spec changes along the way.

With a spacious interior and the choice of all-wheel drive, the Nissan X-Trail is a strong seller in Australia, where it goes head-to-head with the Mazda CX-5, Toyota RAV4, and Honda CR-V.

Power in the Nissan X-Trail comes from a choice of three engines, ranging from a 2.0-litre petrol engine to a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel, with a 2.5-litre naturally-aspirated petrol option in between.

The X-Trail measures 4690mm long, 1820mm wide and 1740mm tall with a 2705mm wheelbase.

The exterior doesn’t try too hard to look coupe-ish, which means there are big windows for a light, airy feeling inside. The boot holds 565L of kit with the rear seats in place and 945L with them folded, feel free to put a pram in the back and see it how works for yourself.

The back seat is a good place to be by mid-sized SUV standards. The tall roofline makes for good headroom, and there’s enough legroom for rapidly-growing teenagers to sit behind tall adults.

Front passengers sit in heated seats, and the driver grabs a lovely flat-bottomed steering wheel trimmed in what feels like quality leather.

Taller drivers will have no trouble getting comfortable, and the X-Trail proved comfortable even for protracted highway stints. Also handy on long highway runs are the cooled cup holders and generous door pockets.
