2024 Nissan X-Trail SUV

2024 Nissan X-Trail

Levels of SUV luxury, style, and practicality are high in the 2024 Nissan X-Trail.  It is an accomplished cruiser in town and out on the open road, and it offers decent space for five adults, as well as an extra two seats for smaller people. 

The new 2024 Nissan X-Trail offers seating for up to seven occupants, making it an ideal family wagon, particularly for those who love an outdoor excursion or overnight adventures in the wild blue yonder. It comes with more boot space than the popular Nissan Qashqai, 575 litres of boot space to be exact.  The floor is flat and there are some handy hooks and tie-down points for unusual loads.  Obviously, folding down the rearmost seats opens a whole lot more luggage capacity.  If you fold the middle and third rows down, the X-Trail has 1298 litres.  If you went for just the five-seat model, this space behind the second row is a larger 1424 litres, because of the lack of the sixth and seventh seat taking up space.  Additional pockets at the side of the boot give an extra bit of carrying capacity for other paraphernalia like ropes, sunscreen, towels etc.  With the 60/40 split fold design, you can fold down the rear seats in the formation that’s best for you. 

Cruise control, front emergency braking, blind spot warning, driver alertness, lane departure warning, and even traffic sign recognition are all items that are included in every new Nissan X-Trail model.  High-end models come with a ProPilot system; this package includes traffic jam assist, navigation assist with an adaptive cruise control system, and a fancy park assist feature that will even park the car on its own while you’re checking the surroundings behind the wheel.  This is a safe beast of burden, a perfect SUV for protecting those close to you, and one that holds a 5-star ANCAP crash test award.

High-spec models also come with features like ProPilot assist (mentioned above), providing full traffic assistance by keeping you in lane, following the car in front at a safe distance, and controlling the X-Trail to a stop when you meet heavier congestion.  It will then set off again once the car in front of you moves on. Cameras on the higher spec models and standard-fit parking sensors make getting in and out of congested city streets and carparks a cakewalk.  There is good visibility out the windows, too.

As far as the exterior goes, the 2024 Nissan X-Trail looks good and is pretty sleek for a large SUV.  The rugged cladding around the wheels and silvery skid plate under the back bumper give it a handsome, tough appearance that should appeal to most of its adventure-type buyers.  And the style continues inside Nissan’s SUV.  Leather upholstery and trim looks classy, and higher-spec models come with a big 12.3-inch central touchscreen. You also get a sophisticated and easy to use digital driver’s display with a head-up display adding even more clever tech.

The X-Trail’s seating comfort is excellent, the seats providing a great blend of comfort and support, ideal for longer excursion across the continent.  For those in the back seat areas, there’s plenty of room for legs, heads and shoulders, and even the foot space is good.  Three adults can happily sit across the second row in comfort, and the middle bench can slide, allowing for some extra cubic inches for those sitting in the optional third row of seats. These sixth and seventh seats are better left for smaller people, particularly if longer journeys are undertaken.

Those in the front seats of the new X-Trail are treated to premium levels of space and comfort.  A great view of the road ahead is an enjoyable feature of driving a luxury vehicle like this.  Drivers of the new X-Trail will be impressed with how the big SUV gets along comfortably and composed, making it a truly capable family cruiser.  

The petrol engine has reasonable levels of performance, and once you’re up to speed on the motorway, it’s quiet and composed, with only a small rustle of wind around the wing mirrors being detectable.  Flick the intelligent cruise control on and sit back and enjoy the X-Trail’s fine cruising ability.  The big SUV feels nicely balanced on roads that are more twisty, with the body roll being well controlled.  You also get the choice of two hybrid engines alongside the standard 2.5-litre ULP motor; these hybrids are identified as e-Power engines and deliver slightly better economy around town. 

For a completely different experience, take the new Nissan X-Trail out to the bush and onto looser surfaces, enjoy the AWD models as they work remarkably well at pulling you through and over all sorts of stuff that gets in your way.  The big SUV copes well and has engaging off-road modes on the drive selection modes.  The Nissan X-trail behaves particularly well on gravel roads. 

The infotainment system is pretty decent to use, being smooth and simple to navigate through menus. Entry level X-Trails get a simpler TFT display.  On the X-Trails, you’ll find two USB ports to connect your phone to the infotainment system, and you get wireless Apple CarPlay and wired Android Auto.

As mentioned earlier, you can buy the snazzy 2024 Nissan X-Trail with three engine options.  The 2.5-litre ULP engine for the base model drives the front wheels only and has up to 135 kW of power and 244 Nm of torque.  These won’t set any land speed records, but that’s not the point of owning something like this.  The other two X-Trail engines are hybrids, both of which use the same 1.5-litre, 106 kW turbo petrol as a base.  Rather than driving the wheels, the hybrid unit works more like an on-board generator to charge the 2.1 kWh battery pack, which, in turn, powers the single electric motor on the ST-L 2WD.  The premium versions get more than one electric motor to help out with power duties and the added AWD system.

The mild hybrid will do around 6 litres/100 km. For the full hybrid variants, you get a bit more efficiency.  If you’re after the fully equipped AWD, then the dual-motor e4orce version is happy to put the power down with all paws clawing at the tarmac.  You can also get an economy figure of less than 6 litres/100 km should you drive carefully.  The base ST and ST-L 2WD versions return a combined fuel consumption of around 8–9 litres/100 km.

For style, practicality, comfort, and safety, the 2024 Nissan X-Trail is a winner – hands down.
