UK CARAVANNERS ENJOYED something of a love affair with the previous generation Nissan X-Trail. Good value, no-nonsense and tough, it had plenty to commend it.

The current version has many of the same characteristics but somehow, has not quite scaled the same heights of popularity with the towcar buying public. It's looks a great package on paper, but the only way to test a tug is to hit the road, with a van in tow.
