From The Experts

  • Pros
  • Cons
Nissan X-Trail

The Nissan X-Trail is the only SUV in its segment which comes with a petrol hybrid engine option, apart from the regular conventional petrol engine. The petrol-hybrid engine in the Nissan X-Trail not only feels more smooth and refined but also trumps other SUVs when it comes to fuel efficiency.

With the presence of safety features like lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring system, forward collision warning, and forward emergency braking, the Nissan X-Trail is one of the safest premium SUVs in its category.

For a premium SUV, the Nissan X-Trail has a good balance of comfortable ride quality and good driving dynamics. The SUV, despite having a high ground clearance, has negligible body roll, which makes the overall driving experience very pleasurable.

Toyota Rush

Compared to the small and old school looking previous generation Toyota Rush, the new version looks absolutely modern and eye-catching. The new Rush looks quite striking with angular front headlamps, wide front grille, rugged side profile with black cladding, roof rails and machined alloy wheels and the sporty rear profile with wide and horizontal tail lamps. All these design elements make the Rush feel like it is a vehicle from one category above.

The new generation Toyota Rush now features the additional flexibility of two extra seats in the third row, making it a seven-seater compact MUV. These extra two seats have a flexible folding arrangement, thus opening up a cavernous boot space at the rear. At the same time, there are multiple cup holders and small storage spaces in the entire cabin, making it a practical place to be in.

The previous generation Toyota Rush was known for its almost indestructible feel, and this new version of the Rush feels the same way as well. The ever trustable reliability factor of brand Toyota comes into play, giving the owners of the Rush an extra peace of mind when it comes to the after-sales period of owning it.

Nissan X-Trail

While the front and second row of seats in Nissan X-Trail are very plush and spacious, the third row of seats suffer from low space levels. Both the legroom and knee room are very low, which makes them best suitable only for small kids.

The recent facelift of the Nissan X-Trail has made it quite eye-pleasing this time, however, it still lacks the road presence of other conventional full-size premium SUVs available at its price.

While the Nissan X-Trail feels solidly built-in and out, the design of the central console on the dashboard is a bit unappealing. The presence of a number of buttons around the infotainment system makes it look a bit cluttered.

Toyota Rush

While the Toyota Rush looks very striking and contemporary on the outside, the fact that it has been moderately styled on the inside makes for confused opinions. The too subtle styling on the inside with boring looking instrument console and center console dilutes the overall experience.

The new Rush is powered by a 1.5-litre petrol engine, which is not as exciting in its power delivery as one would expect from it. The linear power delivery is good for comfortable and effortless driving but is not as engaging to drive, which might be a small turn off for enthusiasts.
