Nissan have continued to create a basic, solid and reliable SUV best suited for families. The 2018 Nissan X-Trail is a comfortable ride for those that want an SUV at a lower price point, without all the flashy details.

Pros

  • Space: This seven-seater vehicle has copious leg room, particularly in the rear seats. Tall adults needing extra head or leg space will find the ride spacious and comfortable. The boot space measures 445L when the rear seats are folded down, making the vehicle perfect for transporting large cargo items, sporting gear or luggage.
  • Fuel Economy: In comparison to competitive models in the market, the fuel economy in the 2018 Nissan X-Trail is excellent. At just 8 litres per 100kms, the car gets good mileage on long drives.
  • Safety: Nissan have again kept safety and family priorities at the forefront of mind with their design of the 2018 X-Trail. Safety features include forward collision braking, emergency automatic brakes, pedestrian detection, lane department intervention and a fantastic automatic cruise control system.
  • Smoothness: The steering is light for a large SUV and feels weightless on bumpy roads. The vehicle is very well calibrated, and the suspension system is excellent.
  • Price Point: For a large family car, with several different model versions, that price point of the 2018 Nissan X-Trail is one of the best in the market.

Cons

  • Technology:The infotainment system in the 2018 Nissan X-Trail is disappointing. The 7-inch infotainment screen does not have the high-tech capabilities of competitive cars. The system is slow, difficult to navigate and the Bluetooth telephony technology drops in and out. The sound can be static on phone calls and the speaker quality is poor.
  • Design: The model design of the 2018 X-trail is inoffensive and only partially different to previous models. The interior is outdated and does not feel like a new design, nor does it have that ‘new car’ feel. The cabin is fitted out with sub-par fittings. Rather than feeling a sense of luxury and prestige when riding in the 2018 Nissan X-Trail, passengers experience the feel of jumping in ‘just another car’.
