Currently have an X Trail. 2017. Wanted the extra boot space and more room for grandkids child seats.Problem is its a bit long for our drive. When we’ve been shopping we have to stop the car a few feet from house, take shopping out of boot and reverse car right back.

So going back to old faithful. Whats the new engine like. Also thinking about an auto this time.

Come on guys. Help
Only thing im sure of is the colour. I adore the white, last two have been white... i know I'm boring lol

Nothing wrong with White Tiffany.  Both my QQ and Xtrails are white.  It surprisingly doesn't show up the dirt as much as a 'coloured' car.  Thumbs Up

The new engine is fantastic, i have he 1.3 160 manual and it has power all the way through the range. Its great on a motorway, no need to change down, just foot down and away you go.

I had the 1.3 engine recently as courtesy car... the engine is not adequate for the weight of the car.

Maybe I'm biased, 'cause I compare it to the 2.0 Diesel engine....

Was it the 140 or 160 bhp though?

The 160 is perfectly 'adequate' imo.... and i just sold a Mini Cooper S.

Sorry, had to comment further. Tiffany, I'd recommend a test drive, only then will you know whether it suits you or not.

Imo, this really is a fantastic engine, its light years ahead of the 1.2 I traded in for it. There oodles of power, grunt, oomph, whatever you wish to call it. From 1600 revs it pulls nicely, from 2000 revs you have lift off.

You won't be disappointed Tiffany.

Yes agree a test drive is a must. Worried my heart will rule my head.
Going for the full spec again so will test drive a couple.

Unless you need the torque for towing, or you're a high mileage driver, petrol is the way to go Thumbs Up

The new petrol 1.3 160 engines now have greatly increased torque too, close to what the MR20DDE engines manage.

Torque is up to 260/270nm, with compression also now at 10.5:1.

The torque is also reached across a wide rev range, 1600-3500rpm.

A very impressive feel all round.

Hi Tiff, long time no talk.
I've just done the same and come back to the Qashqai from the X Trail due to not needing such a big car. Gone with the 1.6dci Tekna 4wd like my first J10.
