The Nissan X-Trail has taken the SUV market by storm since its introduction to the market in 2000.What Nissan has managed to do with the X-Trail line is nothing short of impressive. The flexibility and customisation that is available to the customer with the 2017 X-Trail has scratched the itch of many SUV enthusiasts.

The beauty of the 2017 X-Trail — especially the four-wheel drive edition — is that it will please old-school fans as well as those who’ve yet to experience the X-Trail in all its glory. There is a hybrid model that only has limited availability, and its advantages extend well beyond its efficiency and economy. One such advantage of the hybrid model is that it comes with regenerative braking (for increased fuel economy), Nissan’s Pure Drive mode, energy monitor, and anunder-floor storage section that replaces the Divide-N-Hide Cargo System that is on the standard model.

The 2017 X-Trail’s cosmetic adjustments are also noteworthy. The taillights and headlights have been given a distinct overhaul —the premium edition offers high-intensity headlights of the LED projector variety, and its base model counterpart features Halogen Headlamps with LED daytime running lights. Additionally, the LED taillights come as standard on all trim levels.

The 2017 X-Trail ships with same mechanical features and power train as its predecessor, and the four-wheel-drive diesel variant doesn’t pack the punch that we would have hoped. Nevertheless, with all the customisation that can be made, it shouldn’t be too hard at all to shortlist a model that suits your needs. Some of the added extras include a push-to-start button, heated seating, sunroof, Around View® Monitor & Satellite Navigation, rear-view camera, NissanConnect™ smartphone integration,sensor-activated tailgate, and even a 7-seat variant for large families.

Pros

  • Option for two-wheel drive or all-wheel drive
  • Pleasant aesthetic update
  • Plenty of space
  • Option for hybrid model

Cons

  • The technology at the base level leaves a lot to be desired
  • Diesel engine could do with more kick
  • No update to the powertrain (*although the previous one was serviceable)
