Nissan X-Trail Leasing
Why Would You Want One?
If you lease a Nissan X-Trail, you’ll see why this model is one of the brand’s global best-sellers. With this revised version, hi-tech features and more appealing looks are matched to existing attributes – things like class-leading levels of space and the option of seven seats.
Give Me the Key Details...
This smartly updated version of the third-generation X-Trail model has a high-quality interior and some seriously smart technology under the skin. This now includes Nissan's clever ProPILOT safety system, which introduces semi-autonomous driving capability to this SUV for the first time. As before, there's a robust engine range and reasonable off-road capability. It’s a model line positioned just above the popular Qashqai, offering crossover aesthetics with proper SUV mechanicals. Nissan X-Trail lease deals can be very tempting.
Although the X-Trail appears to have become a bit more lifestyle-oriented, this is Nissan we're talking about here; manufacturers of some of the cleverest all-wheel-drive systems around. Nissan X-Trail finance will be based on the choice you make from an engine line-up that has a familiar look. The core engine is Nissan's powerful but frugal 1.6-litre dCi 130 diesel, optionally mated to an XTronic CVT gearbox. This unit delivers plenty of pulling power (320Nm of torque) and is decently refined, so should be at home on or off road. Alternatively, buyers can opt for a pokier 177PS 2.0-litre dCi unit. Or, for petrol people, there's the option of a DIG-T 163PS green-pump-fuelled 1.6-litre powerplant.
Practical touches include rear side doors that open to almost 80 degrees – far wider than normal – to allow not just easy access but also to ease the loading and unloading of a child seat. The middle row seats recline and slide, while, where fitted, the optional third row folds forward to increase luggage space.

The Bottom Line
Overall, this revised third-generation X-Trail offers much more than its predecessors ever could. A Nissan X-Trail lease gets you class-leading levels of space and efficiency, more appealing looks, plenty of clever tech and, crucially, the option of seven seats. That last feature gives this car something most compact lifestyle soft roaders can't offer – and those that can tend to be more expensive and pricier to run. Perhaps most importantly, there's an element of desirability in this updated and improved X-Trail that was missing from its predecessors. All of which might indeed mean that if you're looking for a car of this kind, 'X' may very well mark the spot.
Like the look of the Nissan X-Trail, but want to see more?
It’s easy to see the appeal of Nissan X-Trail leasing deals, but if you want to look around first, there are some convincing rivals. First, take a look at the X-Trail’s sibling, the Nissan Qashqai. The Hyundai Santa Fe is another roomy, four-wheel-drive alternative. Finally, take a look at the load-lugging Renault Koleos.
