Much like the exterior, Nissan has taken the opportunity to reboot the interior as well. And the change is profound. Gone are the tacky plastics of the previous generation and enter the European chic of the latest X-trail.

Around the cabin, there’s an abundance of leather and hard wearing plastics that respond solidly when rapped. Buttons and knobs around the centre console give solid feedback and doesn’t give the impression. This improvement in the interior material quality and exterior design seems to be a trend with Nissan’s latest models and has uplifted the quality quotient for the Japanese manufacturer significantly.

You’ll be forgiven for thinking that all this looks awfully familiar because everything you see, touch and feel here are lifted straight out of the Qashqai. Not exactly a bad thing, since we loved the Qashqai’s interior but it is unimaginative and robs the X-trail of a unique identity rather than being just a larger variant of the former.

Built into the centre console, the infotainment system isn’t lacking in features. CD, Bluetooth, USB and Radio are all included. Although not pictured on this test unit, the X-trail will be delivered with in-built Sat-Nav on a larger screen similar to the Qashqai. The steering wheel mounted buttons convey an additional level of convenience. The X-trail even comes with a set of cup holders that’ll keep your beverage cool with air piped directly from the aircon.

The improved ergonomics does make itself immediately obvious once settled into the driving seat. A commanding view is supported with comfortable seats which Japanese models traditionally lacked. There’s support in the right places thanks to the zero gravity design that first debuted on the current Cefiro.

With the 80 degree wide aperture, the rear doors allow easy ingress and egress into the second and third row of seats. Legroom is aplenty here in the second row and so is headroom despite the presence of a panoramic roof. However the cramped third row seems best suited for small children or people you don’t like very much.

Like most other SUVs with a third row, once deployed, boot space is severely limited at 135 litres but stow it and this increases to 445 litres. With a diminished passenger priority, the boot is capacious and with a flat floor, loading and unloading is a breeze.
