Model - Nissan X-Trail 2ltr Sports
This vehicle is smooth, very quited,especially on motorways and handles extreamly well. Off road the 4- wheel drive selector is not always required, but when needed a simple push of a button at any speed, or vehicle angle produces all the power & stability required for what I would consider tough terrain.
The X-Trail comes with a high level of equipment compaired to its competitors. Light power steering,Electric windows all round, excellent sound system including 6X C.D. changer, good seating position with pleny of adjustment including height. A large sunroof,easy to reach controls and plenty of storage space in both the front & rear of the vehicle. Rear leg room is plentiful and the split rear seats are easy to fold for extra carrying space. Gearbox is a bit clicky, but to be expected from an off road vehicle.
On the down side, the 2 litre engine at times seems underpowered at low speeds on the road, althought not off road, and will return at best 26MPG combined figures.(330 miles to a tank of fuel,being my best return to date over 9K worth of driving) Cloth seats mark & stain easily, (damp clothing or damp hair will leave water marks)although Nissan have now cleaned mine reluctantly under warranty & scotched guarded them. I believe the type of trim used on the 2004 models has been change.
Overall I am pleased with the vehicle and the service I have recieved from Nissan to date.
