Does Nissan’s X-Trail come close to fit the one-car-garage bill? Yes, at least on paper - it’s a 7-seater SUV with a petrol-electric powertrain sending torque to all four wheels. Its anticipation has been long coming since we last saw it at Singapore Motorshow 2023, so much so that it ranked among our top picks.

Right off the bat, you can see that it looks a lot fresher than its predecessor, with a “V-motion” grille adorning the front just like any other modern Nissan. But with the X-Trail now equipped with a second-generation e-POWER electric powertrain, both efficiency and performance have improved leaps and bounds over its older sibling launched in 2017.

Unlike other Nissans equipped with e-POWER that sends power to the front rubbers, this has a 2-motor setup in charge of sending torque to all four wheels. Power distribution is still front biased, with a 330Nm / 195Nm front rear torque split - impressive numbers helped on by a 1.5-litre 3-cylinder petrol engine working behind the scenes.

Claimed fuel consumption is rated at 6.7l/100km, so effectively you can achieve more than 800km with its 55-litre fuel tank. Although that’s a fair chunk less than a cheaper Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, it has more poke and accommodates 2 more passengers with a 3rd row. Volkswagen’s Tiguan in R-Line trim might be a better comparison with a more punchy output (albeit via a more conventional turbo-power delivery) at a similar price point, but it also lacks a 3rd row. Now it all starts to make sense…

The X-Trail keeps to the theme of offering as many tech and features as possible. Apart from the heads-up display, there's a 12.3-inch infotainment system with in-built Android Auto and Apple CarPlay accompanied by another instrument cluster of similar size. There’s USB ports (Type-A and C) for front and rear occupants, in addition to a tri-zone climate control system. Both driver and front passenger get 10-way power adjustable seats with electric lumbar support.

Advanced safety features include a forward collision warning system, sensors to detect moving objects all around, and more common features like lane departure warning, blind-spot warning and rear cross-traffic alerts.

If you find that the one-car-garage appeal still holds true for the X-Trail, Nissan can reward you with early bird perks if your heart (and wallet) is set on one. A complimentary ceramic coating, free 12 months of road tax, S$1,000 worth of petrol vouchers (that’s more than 6 full tanks worth in X-Trail speak) and up to 50,000km of free servicing amongst others might just stretch your quarter of a million bucks a bit further.
