There is no denying that the first- and second-generation X-Trail was boxy and, for lack of a better word, ugly. For 2014, Nissan redesigned the X-Trail, ushering in a new generation and a more modern design that puts it leagues ahead of the outgoing model. On the outside, the X-Trail takes styling cues from the rest of Nissan’s crossover and SUV lineup, featuring the V-Motion grille, a heavily revised front fascia, new exterior lighting modules, and a sleek side profile. It should also be noted that the new X-Trail also drops that boxy, 80s-looking rear end for a more modern look that should appeal to the masses. Inside, The X-Trail benefits from more space, better ergonomics, the latest iteration of Nissan’s NissanConnect system with a seven-inch display and smartphone connectivity. The downfall of the new X-Trail is the underpowered boredom box under the hood. The 1.6-liter diesel engine delivers a laughable 128 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque, which means its looks better be good enough if it stands a chance against models like the BMW X3 and the Honda CR-V.

According to Nissan, the new X-Trail “combines Nissan’s 4x4 heritage with fresh ideas and technologies inspired by its ground-breaking crossover models.” Even with an available all-wheel drive system, the X-Trails ability to conquer anything in the dirt is more than questionable. With 128 horsepower, you might have a better chance off-roading in a Honda Civic. Be that as it may, the new X-Trail is still a huge departure from the outgoing model, and it does have the modern look going for it. So, with that said, take a look at our full review below and make your own opinion about the new Nissan X-Trail.
