The 2.2dCi SE won best compact 4x4 in the What Car? Able chassis and sophisticated four-wheel-drive system make the X-Trail a fine drive, on- and off-road. Recent overhaul has added more equipment and safety kit, and the interior is practical.

Neither as rugged-looking as a Land Rover Freelander nor as stylish as a Toyota RAV4. The cabin may be practical, but the mish-mash of trim materials and fabrics looks awkward. Petrol engines need more pulling power.
