Nissan X-Trail 4x4 7-seater

2023-2024 Model

Another favourite car among our range of large new large family vehicles & car models is the Nissan X-Trail 4x4 7-seater. It’s a great option if you're looking for a 4WD vehicle to accommodate & seat a large party. It’s versatile, so you can just as easily traverse the gravel roads of the Highlands as well as circumnavigate the island. Exploring Iceland’s wild backcountry and top volcanic landscape is a truly unique experience you won’t soon forget. The X-Trail is one of our most popular models, and you can understand why. If you’re looking for the right choice to seat a group of five to seven people, you’ve found it.  


Something to be aware of is that when the new vehicle is converted to seat seven passengers, rear trunk room is extremely limited. If you’re planning on trekking in Landmannalaugar or skiing in Akureyri, getting a roof box is highly recommended. You’ll need it to carry your hiking gear, skiing equipment, and other essentials. This large family vehicle features a gorgeous aerodynamic design and also comes standard with Bluetooth, USB outlets, 12V plug, and heated seats. Suitable for F-Roads

Best Large Family Vehicle

Not everyone taking a road trip in Iceland will fit into a hybrid sedan or a standard SUV. And that means one thing: large and passenger family SUVs and model cars to the rescue! Whether you’re traveling with an organization, your group of friends from college, or just taking an unforgettable luxury family vacation, sometimes you need something bigger. Time spent on the road means you want you and your guests to be as comfortable as possible. We’ve got something for everyone with our selection of large capacity 4x4 SUVs and 2WD vans. Because when it comes to Iceland travel, the more the merrier! 


Are Larger Models Easy to Maneuver?  


Just because your luxury rental is bigger than average doesn’t mean you’ll have a hard time behind the wheel. Driving safety in Iceland is of the utmost importance during your trip. We’ve selected these vehicles for their ease of use during sometimes snowy weather conditions or icy road conditions. We want you to arrive safely at your destination, so all of our new auto models are handpicked based on their safety rating and how well they can handle Icelandic roads. The added feature of a rear 4WD on our SUVs will give you extra control over your vehicle and peace of mind.  


SUV or Van? Which is Better?  


The answer to this question totally depends upon your needs, travel preferences, and itinerary in Iceland. Smaller groups might want the more intimate experience of exploring Iceland together in an automobile like the Kia or Nissan options that we offer. It feels more like a regular car rental than driving in the Renault Traffic. The larger, higher-capacity model, on the other hand, might be useful for families who want to travel with the kids and other family members in the back besides just mom and dad. And remember, if you want to visit Iceland’s Highlands, you’ll need to rent a 4x4 vehicle. It’s mandatory for those unpaved F-roads that you’ll find all over Iceland’s interior. This untamed territory is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced, and traveling by van simply won’t cut it. So take a look at what things you’d like to do, the type of trip you’d like to take and weigh your auto options.
