Nissan X-Trail dCi 177
The Nissan X-Trail gets a new diesel engine. Woohoo! Sarcasm aside, though, this is pleasing news. So please stick with us. This 175bhp 2.0-litre is nearly 50bhp up on the next diesel down. So performance is stronger, as is refinement. X-Trails are very good – more mudpluggy Qashqais with the option of seven seats, basically – and this engine only
adds to that. It rides comfily, grips well and can have a whole Currys worth of tech on board. A very solid family SUV, made better.
