The long test Nissan X‑Trail: one but big disadvantage

Seventeen liters per hundred! Such average fuel consumption has highlighted the on-Board computer X-Trail after a few days of driving around the city. It’s good that this glutton feed “ninety second”, or drafting the budget in the tube would be left.Maxim Sachkov “Behind the wheel”

Probably have to live with forever pressed button Eco mode manages a little fuel to moderate the appetite. However, to go with aceastronomy not only cheaper, but also more comfortable — the gas pedal becomes more “stretched”, it is not necessary to delicately work the right leg to move smoothly from traffic lights or in traffic proberutsya on two feet.

On the track, even with a pretty high average speed victorious keep the flow within tens. X‑Trail perfectly demonstrates a characteristic feature of modern vehicles is a very significant difference between urban and rural fuel consumption. And it’s not on busy roads. Due to tightened ecological settings, the engines consumed more fuel in transient conditions, which is much more in urban traffic. In addition, in the boxes there were “economical” highest transmission, allowing the car to move along the track at high speed at low engine speeds, thereby consumes less fuel. For example, the X-Trail at 120 km/h the tachometer needle correspond to 2000 rpm.

For several months I haven’t been able to get used to the system of the circular review is to focus the mirrors during the maneuver safer. Rear view camera, a good thing. It helps to catch millimeters in the Parking lot.For several months I haven’t been able to get used to the system of the circular review is to focus the mirrors during the maneuver safer.

Paired with the 2.5‑liter atmospheric engine works CVT Jatco JF016E. The Duo is well trained for normal everyday driving. It’s funny to keep on continually walking clockwise tachometer for how the control electronics depending on pressing the gas and the terrain gradually changes the gear ratio in the continuously variable transmission and engine speed. It’s probably more effective than with fixed gear. But why does it not affect the economy?

With a comfort ride not only on asphalt. Impassable roads storm is not accounted for, but the way where conventional passenger car is not necessary to climb. Quickly find the pedal position to crawl vnatyag with minimal wheelspin. Don’t even have to turn on the Lock mode (when a electro-hydraulic clutch is locked and the thrust is distributed equally between front and rear axles) — electronics and in automatic mode realises torque to all four wheels.

But the spurts are not the strongest side X-Trail. Dispersal to hundred in 12.5 seconds satisfies me, but from a 171‑horsepower engines waiting for more.

The duties of a father forced to test the usability of child seat in every car. X‑Trail gets a four on a five-point scale. Isofix brackets are deeply recessed and are deprived of the rails, so to fix the chair difficult. But the strap can snap even a five year old child thanks to the developers for the convenient location of the locks.The duties of a father forced to test the usability of child seat in every car.

Try on a winding road? It’s not about the X‑Trail. The chassis is well suited for quiet movement with flow, but not for jumping from row to row. In this don’t — suspension and steering normally behave. Is that small irregularities could not be transmitted in detail to the salon.

Our X‑Trail at the top picking LE Thor maximally stuffed with electronic systems that make life easier for the driver. But sometimes I start to regret that so many of them on one of you. For example, for no reason can panic system of the circular review — this occurs most often in the rain. A couple of times is not a good time woke up system auto brake — though quickly caught himself, released his e-bridle, and not creating dangerous road situations. Often translate into manual mode climate control in automatic it sets in the cabin a comfortable temperature. Regardless of the fact that behind — frost or heat.

The boot is rather big X-Trail is not very roomy. I want to push it in height and width. Lots of storage space eat massive wheel arches with guides to “the buildings” high-rise organizer.

To open the trunk X-Trail is possible in four ways: by pressing the button on the fifth door, the console, the cabin or wave of the foot under the bumper. However, contactless method works only when you swipe the foot from corner to corner.To open the trunk X-Trail is possible in four ways: by pressing the button on the fifth door, the console, the cabin or wave of the foot under the bumper.

Three years ago, for us to test the led headlights got Nissan X‑Trail c Bi-LED headlights. The main claim was to the middle light — he was far too “near”. Complained about it and many buyers. For the restyled cars headlights upgraded, providing in addition a mechanism that when the wheel deflects the beam 15 degrees right or left. Now the middle began to beat on. Border “light and darkness” remained sharp, but the strain is much smaller due to a better range. The more that works well with automatics, which switches the modes of the headlights. It is, as before, a little slow with the transition to far, but in the middle switches faster than I can react and reach for the turn signal / multifunction lever – regularly monitors not only counter, but also passing cars, not sprayed on the single street lamps and floodlights, but switched at the entrance to the lighted town. To ride with these headlights safely and comfortably, even at high speeds.

Do I like the Nissan X‑Trail? It is not ideal and perhaps this is interesting to me. On the one hand, a reliable and comfortable car, that is, on all occasions. On the other — he constantly throws up food for thought and plenty of reasons to write about it myself. And I’m glad to share this information with readers, and with representatives of the Russian plant Nissan. They come from different sources get feedback from owners of the X-Trail, analyze them and possibly eliminate the shortcomings.
