New Nissan X Trail




Again, not for US.
But I think this is pretty popular where they sell it.
That includes Canada, Europe and Mexico.

It looks very much like the old one, but Nissan claims it is “all new”…

  1. Instead of this decent looking mini-SUV, we will get the very ugly hyundai looking Rogue??? No wonder Nissan’s sales are down, it’s only going to get worse!

  2. Vince, these are very popular here in Canada and I’ve had it as a rental in UK as well.

    If you ever drive one, you’ll understand just why they are so popular. The drive is so effortless and engaging that it feel like an extension of yourself.

    I almost bought one, but didn’t like the centre stack instrumentation layout. But the interior on this new one is worlds different. Too bad it won’t be sold in Canada anymore.

  3. This won’t be sold in Canada?
    I was going to have Goshen-Face go up to Canada
    and carry it on his shoulders and bring it over to New York. I guess I can live with the Rogue, but this would have been PERFECT.
    Are customers in the US real losers? We don’t get the Honda CrossRoad and now this? Sometimes I don’t
    understand Japanese companies. Most big European companies bring over most of their models. Mercedes was testing its B Class on the New Jersey Trpk and heading up to NY. Soon Alfa, and the French car companies will try to re-enter the US and Nissan can’t bring over this freaking SUV? BS

  4. The x-trail sells extremely well in Canada. It is a winner. This vehicle is 100% new. the only thing shared with the old one is the name. they maintained a similar style, but it’s larger and has a cvt. not one part is interchangeable w/old one.

  5. Another new SUV with a tailgate brought out flush with the edge of the bumper. Where you could once get away with just a bumper skin after a minor bump, you’ll now have to repair or replace the hatch door too.

    Quite $tupid.

  6. Man, I am really getting pissed off about the massive D pillars on several of the new crossovers. You could hide a bus in the blindspot of this thing.

    I’m glad someone else notices this problem. It’s amazing that insurance companies don’t find this a problem, too.

    I had someone tell me here that there are no blind spots. It was merely my fault for not having my mirrors correctly positioned.

  8. excellent design for the next gen x-trail. still looks rugged and capable for some light offroading. and i think this is the first time they are using a cvt in something that is able to go off the beaten path… i wonder how that will turn out. i don’t like the fact that nissan is putting the cvt into all of their cars now. i find the drive pretty boring now after 4 yrs of owning a murano. but anyways, i like how they softened up the interior, the outgoing one has a lot of hard plastics, and a lot of storage compartments which this one seems like it’s not lacking either. i think it’ll still be a hit. especially with the larger dimensions.

  9. I disagree that the X-Trails sell very well in Canada.

    At least out here on the west coast, there’s not that many around. People here tend to like the CRV’s and RAV4’s. Heck, I see way more Elements than Xtrails.

    It could be different out in the snowy east pole.

    I’m glad in the new model, they got rid of the yaris like centre mounted cluster.. it was hideous.

  10. Outdated – needs a major overhaul in the looks area to something contemporary. It might have looked alright 5 years ago – got to change with the times. It ain’t cool!
