Nissan X-Trail 2018
Carsguide Contributor Dan Pugh had this to say at the time: The N-Sport package does little to add to the driving experience over the standard ST-L, with exterior design treatments the only return on your additional $2050 investment. The ST-L has good practicality and safety, plus the added benefit of being offered in a seven-seat configuration. And in my opinion, the regular version looks better, too.You can read the full review here.
This is what Dan Pugh liked most about this particular version of the Nissan X-TRAIL: Spacious interior, SUV practicality, Safety kit
The 2018 Nissan X-TRAIL carries a braked towing capacity of up to 1500 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.

Nissan X-Trail 2018 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Nissan X-Trail 2018 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Why does my 2018 Nissan X-Trail make a rattle noise when I have my foot on the brake?
It sounds as though something is loose in the transmission and is vibrating (the noise you hear) when the brakes are applied and the load is taken off the transmission. Then, when the brakes are released, the load reapplies to the transmission (as the car begins to creep forward) and whatever is rattling is suddenly under load again and stops making the noise.
This could be down to something in the transmission itself, and if that’s the case, could be a worn torque converter. This is the component that actually turns the engine’s power into a force that drives the transmission and, eventually, the wheels. Inside the torque converter is a series of vanes. If one of these is loose or damaged, a rattle can be the result.
However, before you rush to that conclusion, have a good look under the car. There’s every chance the noise is a simple case of a heat shield, bash-plate or even part of the exhaust system rattling at a particular engine frequency. When you take your foot off the brake and the car starts to move, the engine revs change, the vibration frequency changes at the same time, and whatever it is stops rattling. An internally broken catalytic converter is also a prime suspect for producing a rattle at certain vibration frequencies.Show more

Nissan X-Trail 2018: Can I replace my space saver?
The short answer is yes, but you would need to get another wheel to mount the new spare tyre on, and you might have to think about where you might carry it in the car.Show more
Nissan X-Trail: Is it good off road?
It depends how "off-road" you actually want to go. Mild, well-graded fire trails and a little bit of light beach or snow work are easily handled by the X-Trail, but deep ruts, moderate 4x4 trails, or deep powdery sand and snow will catch the X-Trail out.Show more
