We had an x-trail rental in Melbourne and it was bloody awful.


The spec was bad, the trans was bad, and the economy was not as good as a CX-5.


I test drove the 2017 New CX-5 and it was a very impressive car. I would have purchased it on the spot but the minister of finance wouldn't let me.


The Mazda has miles better features than the X-Trail and is an exceptionally nice car to drive.


Also note the extra warranty and scheduled servicing will add up to well over $4000 value.


Then there is the looks of the new CX-5.... Wow!



Rental vehicles are the absolute worst examples to judge any vehicle by. My X-Trail is 18 months old I have had zero issues, my current fuel use is average 6.5 l/100km. The transmission as no issues and tows boats with ease. As for specs, leather heated seats, climate air, large sun roof, lane departure warning, rear pass warning, Hill start assist, descent control, 4wd, all round camera, sliding and reclining rear seats, auto lights, auto wipers, blind spot warning, park assist, all leather seats, fog lights, daytime lights, Sat Nav...........................

I had the last boxy version of the x trail. average fuel use in hilly town - 16.5L/100ks. Average fuel use on the open road - 10.5L/100ks. Also was pretty gutless. sold it after 3 years (bought new), that car cured my car itch, went back to old secondhand cars after that.

 

I gather they did some magic with the new curvy model.

Personally loving the CX-5 - but I'll be interested to hear how you go with the Nissan for future reference.
