Currently reading: Promoted: Nissan X-Trail 7-day test – impressive quality and drive
Autocar reader Zach Naylor admits that he’d never considered buying a large SUV – until he spent a week with the X-Trail

Zach Naylor of Derbyshire was one of a number of Autocar readers given the chance to try an X-Trail for a week as part of a Nissan promotion. Having never driven such a big car, Zach was keen to find out why SUVs have become so popular.

He was asked to keep a video diary of his honest opinions of the car – and the reality was very different to Zach’s expectations. To find out more, watch this video.

Zach was particularly taken by the X-Trail’s spacious interior, and how easily he was able to fold the seats to fit his bike in. He was also impressed with the car’s ride and handling, and build quality.

His conclusion? “It really suits an active lifestyle. Before the test I wouldn’t have considered a Nissan. Having it for a week completely changed my perception of what this car could do. I’d buy one.”
