Car:: X Trail T30
Model: 2.2 DCi SVE
Year/Plate: 2005
Colour: Silver
Mods: Reversing sensors, side steps, dog guard, rear bumper guard
I'm looking at upgrading our long in the tooth T30 SVE (55 plate) to a T32 Tekna (68 plate), but was wondering how the diesel engines compare?

Is there much difference between the new 1.7 and 1.6 diesels? How do they compare to the 2.2 in my old battlebus?

How are the newer engines when towing? (My wife's horse plus trailer weighs in at about 1.5 tonne).

I had a test drive in a brand new 1.7 today and found it very refined, very comfortable, very much like a car compared to the T30, but wonder how it would perform towing a horse trailer across a muddy field?

It's definitely time to change the old girl, and feel the new XTrail is pretty good value.

Any thoughts would be great, thanks.

I have a 1.6 dci Tekna T32, and wouldn't think it would be up to towing, it barely pulls itself along :grin:
My wife has a 2.0 Ford Kuga and tows trailer plus 2 x horses no problem. Personally if your looking at towing go for something with a minimum 2.0 litre engine.

Ask your dealer for a 24hr test drive and stick your trailer on the back. But having said that there probably aren't many demo vehicles with tow bars fitted :frown:
