Nissan X-Trail declared the Family Car of the Year at News UK Motoring Awards! ​

The Nissan X-Trail e-POWER with e-4ORCE was recognised last night by The Sun, The Sunday Times and in the News UK motoring awards, picking up the esteemed title of News UK Family Car of the Year. 

Now in its 4th generation, X-Trail continues to represent ground breaking technology and adventure and has sold more than 7.8 million units globally since its introduction in 2001. 

X-Trail is Nissan’s electrified family adventure vehicle which joined the line up in 2022 and has been excitedly received since. With 85 degree rear opening doors, in built rear sunshades, USB ports in the second row, up to 585L of boot space and plenty of clever storage options, X-Trail is an excellent option for families. The optional third row gives drivers the flexibility to choose the most suitable version for their requirements whilst still offering X-Trail’s signature rugged yet refined style. 

The Sun Motors Editor Rob Gill said: “The X-Trail has all the goodness of a Qashqai - our 2021 Car of the Year - but with the addition of seven seats and 4WD. “Go for the clever e-POWER petrol hybrid and it’s like driving an EV - quiet, smooth and responsive - minus the hassle of having to stop and recharge. “If your family outgrows a Qashqai, or you live in the green bits of Britain, you’ll want an X-Trail in your life.” 

e-4ORCE is Nissan’s dynamic all wheel drive technology. Housing dual motors which are constantly adjusting to deliver a balanced and stable ride, e-4ORCE is a comfortable and powerful drive that utilizes five drive modes to handle any road condition.

e-POWER offers an electrified motoring experience without the need to plug in. The electric motor exclusively powers the wheels to offer a smooth and quiet drive with enhanced efficiency and reassurance.

The combination of e-4ORCE and e-POWER delivers an advanced alternative powertrain with excellent off-road and towing capabilities. With technologies like ProPILOT Assist with NaviLink, 35” of internal displays and an Around View Monitor with moving object detection, X-Trail is a capable yet sophisticated model which represents an excellent proposition to families and adventure seekers alike.

Nic Thomas, Nissan Marketing Director commented: “X-Trail is a key part of the Nissan line up and it means a lot to be selected for this award by some of the UK’s most popular publications and their motoring experts. Nissan defined the crossover segment with the introduction of Qashqai, and we are thrilled to see Nissan crossovers continuing to be at the forefront of the industry paving the way for new technologies and driving experiences. X-Trail is the biggest car in our line up the perfect choice for families looking for a car that is as comfortable off road as it is driving through cities.”
