Revised Nissan X-trail: Test Drive Review

Date: 25 February 2011   |   Author:

Category: Small 4x4
P11D price: £24,270
Key rival: Honda CR-V

Nissan has revised its X-trail, the underrated small 4x4 that's been somewhat overshadowed by the runaway success of its Qashqai little brother.

The range now consists of just three models, the entry Acenta level 2.0 dCi, and a top-spec Tekna in both manual and automatic form.

Engineering changes mean CO2 has dropped to 168g/km, down from just under 200g/km, while fuel economy now sits at 44.1mpg. The bad news is that emissions are still just over the 160g/km boundary set by many fleets, although small off-roaders generally only get under 160g/km by offering a two-wheel drive version.

The 2.0 diesel is a refined unit with plenty of performance for what is still a tall off-road vehicle, albeit one that handles well. Running costs, though, lag behind rivals from Honda and Land Rover due mainly to a RV prediction of 33.7% rather than the 37% mark of competitors.
