The Nissan X Trail is a compact SUV that is fairly new to the market. This vehicle was introduced in 2001. It was introduced to compete with the Ford Escape as well as some other competitors. It was offered for Nissan consumers that are loyal to the brand but wanted to purchase a compact SUV. Nissan also offers the Pathfinder but that is a larger sized SUV model.
The sporty design and the detail to the body of the Nissan X Trail also makes it a great selling vehicle. Consumers see it as a luxury model of compact SUV by design, but it doesn’t have that high dollar price to go along with it. The interior of the vehicle is very well designed and offers plenty of storage areas. This vehicle offers seating for up to 5.
There are several different engines offered with the Nissan X Trail. It all depends on the amount of power that the consumer would like to have. For those that often go off road or that do light towing, an upgraded engine is recommended.
The first generation of the Nissan X Trail ended in 2007. The second generation it the current one and it features a more square looking back. This offers additional storage space. A couple of special editions have also been offered in limited quantities. They include the Nissan X Trail GT. This vehicle also gets top reviews for overall safety. It has lots of leg and head room to make the ride comfortable no matter where a passenger happens to be located in the vehicle.
