The Nissan X-Trail has been growing in popularity within the early days of the mid-sized or crossover SUV market ever since its introduction way back in 2000. The first generation was a conservatively designed, but with some clever marketing, Nissan focused its appeal to the adventurous male. Creating a successful campaign around outdoor activities and rugged trail adventures. It certainly didn’t preach a single lie in its marketing. With both 4WD models housing a 2.5 litre engine that produced around 132kW and an enviable amount of torque (roughly 245Nm) – there was no denying that the Nissan X-Trail was here to stay.
Around 2007, the second generation emerged, looking just – well - the same. Other than a few minor tweaks, such as increased size, new transmission choices and added features, which included better traction and stability to handle rough roads, it was very difficult to tell the difference between this and the later model.
Currently in its third iteration, Nissan introduced the completely redesigned X-Trail in 2014. Adding exterior design features and increased its specification range with added luxury, safety technology and sleeker styling to match the adventurous spirit of the modern driver.
The current generation of the Nissan X-Trail is available from William Simpson and we continue Nissan’s pursuit by selling exciting vehicles to mirror the lives of its drivers.
