Have you ever owned a Nissan X-Trail or had to purchase any replacement parts for this vehicle? If you have then we would like to hear about both of these experiences. Leave your comments in the comments box at the bottom of the page.

Nissan X-Trail Overview

The Nissan X-Trail is classed as a compact crossover SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle) and is produced by the Japanese automobile manufacturer Nissan. These vehicles are called crossover as they are based on car platforms, and some of the rivals in this class are the Toyota Rav4 and Ford Escape. The X-Trail is great to drive and performs well off-road as well. They are comfortable but lack rear space; they handle well and are good looking vehicles. Dose this sound anything like your experience with the Nissan X-Trail?

Nissan X-Trail History

The first generation (2001-07) was designed on the Nissan FF-S platform, the same as the Almera and Primera. This was one of the first crossover SUV’s to be designed by Nissan, and was to prove to be quite successful. This vehicle has had a few different trim levels in the UK and these were revised in 2005 when the vehicle had a bit of a makeover. The second generation (2007-present) is the current version on the market. This version is built on the Nissan C platform and is slightly larger than its predecessor. In 2010 the Nissan X-Trail had a makeover which didn’t change things to drastically. The platinum version was released in 2012 and has features unseen on any other X-Trail version.

The available engines for the Nissan X-Trail are the 2.0 and 2.5L petrol engines and the 2.0 and 2.2L diesel engines.
