The Nissan X-TRAIL was launched in the UK in 2001 and has become the third best selling 4x4 in Europe. To build on this success it was re-launched in late 2003 with a new diesel engine and a number of major revisions including enhanced performance and improved quality and refinement.
Available in SE, Sport, SVE and T-Spec trim with a choice of two petrol engines a 2.0 litre and 2.5 litre and a 2.2 litre turbo diesel engine. Three transmissions are available a 5-speed manual, a 4-speed automatic and 6-speed manual (on 2.2 litre turbo diesel only).Nissan have announced that in May 2005 a two-wheel drive version of the X-TRAIL will go on sale called the X-TRAIL 4x2 - for more information [ click here ]
