Nissan’s X-Trail has won the 2005 Overlander Magazine 4WD Award for the Best Small Wagon, thanks to its performance and practicality.
According to Overlander’s chief road tester Fraser Stronach, the X-Trail has a “strong 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine with variable inlet-valve timing, arguably the best engine in its class”.
The magazine praised the X-Trail for its off-road performance – thanks to Nissan’s ‘All-Mode’ 4WD system – plush on-road ride, roomy interior and practical features.
“Nissan’s X-Trail is Australia’s most popular small four-wheel drive wagon,” Mr Stronach said, “and we reckon it’s also the best.”
The Nissan X-Trail is available in two well equipped variants – the ST and Ti – and is priced from $31,990 (excludes dealer delivery and on-road costs). - NissanReads: 1130
