Nissan X-Trail Parkers 2015-07-07

Centrally-mounted instruments, an air vent directly behind the steering wheel and a driver’s side glovebox; when the five-door 2001 Nissan X-Trail hit our shores its innovation and clever interior packaging wowed consumers. A sharply-styled exterior, neat balance between four-wheel drive ability and two-wheel drive ease of use, plus its punchy engines sealed the deal.

Centrally-mounted instruments, an air vent directly behind the steering wheel and a driver’s side glovebox; when the five-door 2001 Nissan X-Trail hit our shores its innovation and clever interior packaging wowed consumers. A sharply-styled exterior, neat balance between four-wheel drive ability and two-wheel drive ease of use, plus its punchy engines sealed the deal.

And so when the first generation model was replaced in 2007, little (at first glance) had changed. But despite the similarity in look and concept, the second generation X-Trail brought with it revised engines, greater refinement and a leap forward in interior quality.

Cabin space and design innovation remained key to its appeal, and though the instruments fell back in line behind the steering wheel there was loads of room for occupants.
