redesigned rear bumpers and alloy wheels, plus there’s a
choice of three new colours.
With an overall length of 4690mm and a wheelbase of
2705mm, it’s 225mm longer than the XV but only 40mm longer
between the wheels, so the difference in interior space isn’t as
big as the numbers and its physical presence suggest. Where
there’s an advantage is with Nissan’s second-row seating
system – that’s a 40/20/40 split-fold that can slide fore and aft.
Combined with a front passenger seat that can fold rearwards,
it means you can carry objects like ladders up to 2440mm long.
Base and mid-spec 2WD X-Trails can also be optioned as
seven seaters. When we last looked at a seven-seat version we
noted that the third row was suited for small children only, and
even the second row seats had to slide forward so it could be
used. This is still true for the revised model, but its interior,
which includes a revised centre console and D-shaped leather
steering wheel, works well ergonomically, even if it doesn’t have
the XV’s wow factor. The seats are firmer than those in the XV
but just as comfortable – and you won’t hear any complaints
from the second row in winter, with heated seats an option.
At $44,290, the Ti variant should come with a lot of kit and
buyers likely won’t be disappointed. Highlights are adaptive
front lights, a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, a
motion-sensing tailgate, eight-speaker Bose audio system,
and a 360-degree camera.
Powering the Ti is a 126kW/226Nm 2.5 -litre four-cylinder
engine and CVT combination. There’s a smaller 2.0 -litre and
all-new diesel, but the larger petrol remains the favourite
among buyers. Performance is on par with the XV and the extra
torque over the XV is welcome, helping overcome the X-Trail’s
90kg additional weight. Its handling through winding roads is
not as taut and responsive as the XV’s , and at low speed the
larger turning circle reiterates the X-Trail’s larger physical size.
The Subaru XV feels similar to the Impreza sedan/hatch and is
simply more car-like than the Nissan X-Trail, which is a more
traditional SUV with a less dynamically cohesive package. While
the X-Trail’s on-road ability is above average in the class and its
extensive model line-up should satisfy every type of buyer, the
XV 2.0i -S has a clear price advantage. If you don’t need the
space or off-road agility, the XV might be just the ticket.
The X-Trail’s traditional SUV
shape means more space...
And a D-shaped steering
wheel is a highlight.
The XV’s wide boot aperture
And the interior offers
a real wow factor.
