Used Nissan X-Trail is Music Festival Lovers Delight

Music festival lovers take note - the used Nissan X-Trail is staking its claim as the best vehicle for those who love dancing to songs in muddy fields. This likeable vehicle's festival credentials are evident from the moment you pack the tent. The wipe-clean boot is very large, and features double-deck flooring that contains a dividable draw for your musical paraphernalia.

Once on route the (2007 onwards) X-Trail's handling is commendable. The steering is nicely weighted, the body control impressive, and the ride comfortable. When you eventually arrive at the Boggy Field Hotel, this four-wheel drive music lover can get you to your pitch thanks to the 'all road' system. This sends power to the wheel that needs the most traction, and complements the hill decent control function.

The X-Trail is available with four engines but it dances best to the beat of the 2.0-litre 173bhp diesel. This propels its boot load of camping equipment to 60mph in 9.7 seconds and averages 38mpg. The 2.5-litre 166bhp engine is a smooth petrol powered alternative, but this only manages 29mpg and has similar performance to its sibling. So, best save your cash for a picnic table and choose the diesel.

Further plus points include the panoramic roof that makes the interior light and airy. Nissan's legendary build quality, and practical touches such as the numerous cabin storage areas. Should you decide to show-off to your fellow campers on a hot day, there are also several chilled cup holders.

According to Motoring.co.uk's database, prices for the used Nissan X-Trail start at approximately £12,000. Mmmm, that sounds remarkably similar to the price of the average weekend festival ticket.
