With room for seven seats and a huge complement of technology, the X-Trail can cope with anything you throw at it
8 August 2016

The Nissan X-Trail is designed to be incredibly versatile – it can seat up to seven people, and its combination of space and technology makes it an ideal choice for family motoring.

The spacious SUV features a customisable and flexible seating arrangement, including the option of two seats that fold out of the boot floor to make the car a genuine seven-seater – perfect for when you’ve got friends or family visiting. And with a choice of 1.6-litre petrol or diesel engines – and Nissan’s super-smart All-Mode 4x4-i system available on the latter – it can cope with whatever driving challenge you throw at it.

The X-Trail is also packed with technology, with a host of features that will both keep you safe and make your journey more enjoyable. Those features including a 360-degree Around View Monitor system that takes the hassle out of parking, and Nissan Connect, which allows you to access your smartphone’s capabilities from the car’s touchscreen.
