Motoring: Winning Nissan blazing a Trail.
``It's smooth driving and superbly practical, offering not only an excellent load space (in easy-clean plastic) and comfortable seating for five, but also a central flap in the backrest to cope with unusually long loads, like skis or snowboards for example.
``Add all this to its two lively, torquey engines - a speedy 2.0-litre lump and a beefy 2.2-litre turbodiesel - and its inoffensive and sleek styling, and you have a clear winner.
``Well behaved and capable on the road, the baby Nissan also has sufficient off-road ability to get it over difficult terrain, in short it has everything a soft roader should have.''
The X-TRAIL comes with a choice of two new engines - 2.0-1itre petrol and 2.2-litre diesel and three trim levels: S, Sport and SE+. Prices start at pounds 16,750.
