Overview

Don't be fooled by the new Nissan X-Trail's same-same exterior design

By GEORGIA OCONNELL

IT MAY not look too different, but the second-generation Nissan X-Trail has an interesting story to tell if you need a comfortable, accommodating, economical and versatile family SUV. Frankly, we didn’t expect to be impressed after the same-same design and unremarkable (though extremely functional) cabin presentation, but persistence with this compact SUV shows it up to be an extremely capable and likeable package. And we doubt you will find a more frugal petrol-powered ‘auto’ in this class if you choose the uncannily smooth CVT version either.

Who would have thought that a Volvo 740 Estate-esque compact SUV with good ground clearance and a male-skewed action ad campaign would become such a success? That’s exactly what Nissan’s first car-based compact SUV achieved.

Under the square-cut bonnet is a powerful if rather noisy 132kW/235Nm 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine (reduced in output to 123kW and 226Nm in early 2006 to meet emissions requirements) mated to a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic gearbox. Three models were offered (ST, Ti and, from the late 2003 facelift, Ti Luxury) and all featured Nissan’s part-time 4WD system that channelled torque from the front to all four wheels.
