2017 Nissan X-Trail ST-L 2WD: Sydney to Catherine Hill Bay

Everyone enjoys getting out of the urban jungles and hitting the road. North, south, west, it really doesn't matter as long as you're comfortable. Sadly, we cannot all afford the most expensive and luxurious car for the task, so, compromise is necessary. It's a battle of the ages: Budget versus purpose is generally the main consideration, and that's probably a good thing for the Nissan X-Trail...

Hyundai Tucson Elite 1.6L v Nissan X-Trail ST-L 4WD v Toyota RAV4 GXL v Volkswagen Golf Alltrack : Comparison review

The recent suite of updates added to the evergreen Toyota RAV4 suggests that the just-released 2016 facelift moves the game forward by a tangible margin for this popular mid-sized SUV range. Sharper styling, a lift in cabin features and finishes, plus improved ride, handling, comfort and safety all carry the collective promise of game-lifting and enhanced value...

Diesel SUV Comparison : Mazda CX-5 v Nissan X-Trail v Jeep Cherokee v Volkswagen Tiguan

They don’t call Australia the big brown land for nothing. Most of us may live near the blue of the ocean and travel on roads that are black, but there is plenty of brown stuff to be found everywhere else. Country folk who want a medium SUV aren’t necessarily looking at parking prowess or kerb-hopping abilities; rather the ability to cross big distance efficiently and effectively, often on dirt, is the score...

Medium SUV Comparison : Jeep Cherokee v Mazda CX-5 v Toyota RAV4 v Nissan X-Trail v Ford Kuga v Subaru Forester v Hyundai ix35 v Honda CR-V v Mitsubishi Outlander v Kia Sportage

Assembled for this mega-test are 10 models that represent one-third of total SUV volume in Australia – and that’s without including sales for the newest contender here and catalyst for this test, the Jeep Cherokee. It looks bold, it’s available only with petrol engines (for now), and it’s priced under $40,000 to compete with the mainstream...

Facelift fails: The worst styling updates of 2016

When brands update their cars, sometimes the stylists get it wrong. Facelifted models are supposed to add some flair to an existing model - to bring it up to speed with its competitors, or harden up some edges that may been looking a little limp on the original model. They can be massive, major overhauls, or nips and tucks and tweaks to minor aspects of the car's design...

Nissan X-Trail could get seven-seat AWD option if the market demands it

The Nissan X-Trail currently doesn’t offer a seven-seat all-wheel-drive configuration in Australia, but that could change if the market demands it - according to the company’s local arm. Despite being offered in several overseas markets - including Europe - a seven-seat AWD variant remains absent from the local X-Trail line-up, while rivals like the Mitsubishi Outlander, Hyundai Santa Fe and Kia Sorento have offered the combination for years...

2009 Nissan X-Trail ST (4x4) Review

Bought a used 2009 X-Trail and am glad that I chose it over the Honda CRV. Though CRV is better overall package, it lacks any off road capability of the X-Trail (We visit sandy beaches from time to time). My car with the 2.5L petrol engine with auto transmission has given me an average of 12L/100km around the city and 10L/100km on the highway...

2014 Nissan X-Trail ST 7 Seat (FWD) Review

I first reviewed my Nissan X-trail when I had it only for a few months. Now after nearly two years of ownership, I thought it would be good to revisit after many road trips with the family and give an insight to see how its handles the onslaught of three children day to day and on the family holiday. First of all this is the perfect fit for a family with three children...

2010 Nissan X-Trail ST-L (4x4) Review

When I was looking to update my car I wanted one that was reliable, practical and able to do beach driving as well as some basic off-road camp sites. But I did not want/need a big cumbersome 4wd as I still do a lot of city driving around Brisbane. To date I have not been disappointed and it has served all my purposes and more...

2015 Nissan X-Trail ST (4x4) Review

The Nissan Xtrail ST is a comfortable reasonable vehicle to drive but please be aware that when servicing your car from dealerships, things like wheel rotation and a proper brake checks are additional costs the customer has to bear...
