2020 Nissan X-Trail N-Trek review

Aside from a facelift in 2017, the third-generation Nissan X-Trail has been soldering on since 2013. Normally when a model is reaching the end of it’s life, sales start to stagnate, but this X-Trail has remained strong. How so? Let’s have a look.

2018 Nissan X-Trail N-Sport review: Style... and substance?

You would be foolish not to at least test drive the Nissan X-Trail if you’re in the market for a medium SUV, for what it lacks in its interior design and overall sophistication, it makes up for with a big focus on practicality, ride comfort and active safety features.

Medium SUV off-road test: Toyota RAV4, Holden Equinox, Mazda CX-5, Renault Koleos, Subaru Forester, Hyundai Tucson, Kia Sportage, Volkswagen Tiguan, Honda CR-V and Nissan X-Trail

We all know your rationale when it comes to buying a medium-sized SUV with all-wheel drive. You want a vehicle with more room for the kid(s) – or kid(s) that are coming – but you also have in the back of your mind that one day you might need to go off-road. Anybody that's done any proper off-roading knows that the type of off-roading you think you're going to do, compared to the type you'll actually do, is very different...

2018 Nissan X-Trail ST-L (2WD) review

I’m in my late 60’s and have been considering an SUV for some time, because of the ease of getting in and out, and the elevated driving position. The X-Trail wasn’t on my radar until I drove one - my son’s ST 2.5-litre 7-seater. I was impressed, so when I saw this one advertised I bought it without a second thought...

2018 Nissan X-Trail ST-L 7 Seat (2wd) review

When our beloved Aussie family wagon of 17 years finally had us doing an expected cardio sessions four times in two weeks, we knew it was time to upgrade, or cancel our gym memberships! After a quick test drive of a sub-$30K ST Nissan X-Trail, I was impressed. The electric steering was light and effortless...

2015 Nissan X-Trail ST-L (FWD) review

We bought this car because my wife fell in love with it. We weren't looking for an X-Trail, but its look took us by surprise, and after one test drive she was hooked with its comfort to drive. As far as looks and comfort go, we can't fault it. The only issue with the aesthetics is the front left and right blind spots – they're the worst we've experienced to date...

2015 Nissan X-Trail Ti (4x4) review

Nissan X-Trail T31 vs T32 It was the first time ever that I bought the same brand and a follow-up model in succession. Am I happy with the decision? Well, you decide. I was fortunate to drive both vehicles to the Grampians National Park two years in a row. On both occasions, we travelled to the western part, where there are many more low- to mid-grade bush tracks to tackle...
