Overall verdict

The Top Gear car review:Nissan X-Trail



Final thoughts and pick of the range

Facelift X-Trail is softer and more sophisticated, but still more agricultural than class best

All told, the Nissan X-Trail is a decent thing. Here’s a car that can swallow seven people or lots of things, tow something heavy and do a bit of off-roading, but which resembles little more than a swelled Qashqai. Good thing. 

It handles as well as it needs to, and comes with a punchy if unrefined diesel engine as an option, but the infotainment will irritate the tech-savvy, it’s agricultural to drive and inside it feels a bit last-gen both material and design-wise. 

It’s an appealing enough family car. But so is the Skoda Kodiaq, which is probably the one we’d buy.
