The Nissan X-TRAIL handles better, offers superb performance and would be our personal choice.

Build Quality

Build quality is good and with Nissan's reputation for reliability you have a sound package. The finish of some of the materials seemed below average but overall should prove durable in the long term.

Value For Money

The Nissan X-TRAIL is competitively priced within the mid-size SUV segment which includes Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Land Rover, Mitsubishi, Suzuki and Toyota.

Service intervals for the petrol engine are every 9,000 miles and for the diesel every 12,000. The X-TRAIL comes with a three year/60,000 mile manufacturer’s warranty and a 12 year anti-perforation cover.

Conclusion

We enjoyed our time with the Nissan X-TRAIL - we found it more car-like to drive than it’s rivals the Honda CR-V and Land Rover Freelander.

Undoubtedly, the Land Rover Freelander is a fine machine and no doubt, it is better off road but it is dated and due for replacement. The Nissan X-TRAIL handles better, offers superb performance and would be our personal choice.
