How Does the New Nissan X Trail Handle a Weekend Adventure
Escaping the urban jungle and hitting the highway is what many of us dream about during the working week. While many drivers have chosen an Nissan X Trail as a practical vehicle for the weekday commute, can it pull double duty and provide a decent vehicle for a weekend adventure?
The first priority on a weekend adventure is space. If you are hitting the open road, the last thing you want is to feel constricted by a lack of cabin space. Fortunately, the new Nissan X Trail delivers with a cabin that feels roomy enough for the whole family while providing a decent cargo area. There is enough room for a few surfboard bags, wetsuits and all of your other surfing gear, along with a rucksack or two.
Even if there is lots of great scenery to see, a long journey can quickly become a bore without some decent entertainment. The X Trail has a 7.0 inch touchscreen media system that also provides the screen for the rear view camera and sat nav. There is surround view and great menu navigation for the stereo system. The system has Bluetooth and MP3 compatibility along with a CD radio. You can also use the USB for phone connectivity. This will allow you to make your perfect road trip playlist.
The X Trail also offers a great driver experience. While you may have experienced the impressive urban performance, getting it out on the open road showcases the model’s cruising power. The four cylinder, naturally aspirated 2.5 litre petrol engine appears to be made just for the open road. It delivers 126 kW of power and is paired with an automatic CVT transmission. This delivers great responsiveness and a decent fuel economy.
While many of us may daydream about a super sports utility, this is likely to be out of our price range. However, you don’t need to compromise on your dreams too much with the X Trail. Despite the more modest price tag, the X Trail is perfectly capable of handling the open road, the urban jungle or any other conditions you can throw at it on your weekend adventure.
