Toyota RAV 4 Hybrid vs Nissan X-Trail 7 Seater

    I am planning to buy a new car and have shortlisted 2 cars - Toyota RAV 4 Hybrid vs Nissan X-Trail 7 Seater - both automatic.

    May I know which one is the best option considering reliability, safety, features, value for money etc?

    I would be travelling less than 50 kms per week.

    Both brand new?

    There are plenty of reviews for both on youtube.
    Did you check there?

    Yes, both brand new.

    Safety would be much of a muchness, the hybrid is less likely to give bother than a diesel, I'd imagine resale on the x trail would be better but unsure how much of a premium the auto box carries

    Facelift version of the X-Trail goes on sale at the end of July. Sat in a new Rav4 recently and was very unimpressed with it, the quality of materials used in the interior were very poor imo. There must also be a new model due soon?

    Seat Ateca and VW Tiguan are both available with petrol engines if your doing tiny mileage.
