Car reviews - Nissan - X-Trail - 5-dr wagon range
It looks similar, but Nissan's X-Trail II is far better from head to toe
18 Oct 2007
NISSAN has presented the market with a conservative replacement for its original X-Trail, which is going into retirement after six years of service to loyal customers. The company argues that previous-generation X-Trail buyers didn’t want change so the company has accordingly produced a model that looks very much like its predecessor but is bigger and has more standard features for no change in price. Nissan has humble expectations for the new model. Thanks to limited supply due to overseas demand, at best Nissan can only expect sales volume to continue at the same rate as its predecessor.
