About six years ago I briefly ran a second-generation X-Trail that Nissan had kindly loaned to Goodwood for a year. Tough, dependable and highly accomplished on wet, boggy fields in AWD mode, this early box-shaped X-Trail placed the emphasis firmly on the Utility element of SUV, rather than Sport, with the 4x4’s performance being quite lethargic and its on-road behaviour unrewarding.
