Thoughts on petrol Nissan X-Trail?


I am planning to buy a Nissan X-Trail, after 2014 model. What do you think about petrol 1.6? I run around 5,000km per year, not driving daily.

Hi Nittin,

With such low mileage, it's sensible to stay away from diesel power for sure. The 1.6-litre petrol engine works pretty well, though be aware that the front-wheel-drive X-Trail can struggle for traction in wet conditions.
