2013 – 2022

The current Nissan X-Trail is built using the Nissan/Renault Common Module Family (CMF) platform, and it has design stylings inspired by the current generation Nissan Qashqai, as well as the latest Murano (unavailable in South Africa), and the Nissan Patrol. First unveiled in 2013 at the Frankfurt Motor Show, sales of this generation X-Trail for the third time commenced first in Japan. X-Trail international sales commenced in China, Australia and Europe in 2014. Africa was one of the last regions to receive this generation of X-Trail, and all regions (including Africa) have now also received a facelifted version of the X-Trail 2017 model.

Let’s hope that when this version of the X-Trail launches it is also made available in South Africa.

2nd Generation Nissan X-Trail
2007 – 2013

The 2008 Nissan X-Trail became the first of the Second-Generation X-Trails to be launched and was first seen at the 2007 Geneva Motor Show. Japan was once again the first country to receive the X-Trail for Sale, with launches in Europe, Mexico, Australia and South Africa following shortly afterwards. This generation of X-Trail has proven to be an immense hit in the South African used car market, as it was considerably larger than the first generation X-trail. The one and only major facelift for the second-generation X-Trail was launched in July 2010, and it is this vehicle that we so often think of when envisaging a previous generation of Used X-Trail for Sale.

Did You Know? There was an extremely limited number of UK-exclusive Nissan X-Trail Platinum SUVs launched in Great Britain in 2012. With only 200 of these vehicles ever made available, they have become sought-after collector’s pieces across the globe. Although it is believed that one of these rare vehicles was imported to Africa, it is not known if it is currently in South Africa or one of the neighbouring countries. If we do ever find out the whereabouts of this X-Trail however, you can be sure that we’ll write about it in our popular Nissan Blog.

1st Generation Nissan X-Trail
2000 – 2007

The Nissan X-Trail model history starts in the 2000s. First unveiled to the driving public and motor journalists at the 2000 Paris Motor Show, the X-Trail hit sales floors in Japan the same year and was an instant hit. Its adventurous SUV appeal was blended with a sedan’s driving and safety sensibilities, which appealed to family car owners from the moment it was first driven. Due to its instant hit status, it was quickly rolled out across the globe, with a number of memorable X-Trail derivatives and upgrades being launched between the time of its launch in 2000 and the final first-generation models being sold. The two biggest facelifts and spec changes took place in the X-Trail 2005 and the X-Trail 2007.

Did You Know? Due to its robust nature the 1st generation Nissan X-trail is still manufactured and sold in certain countries across Latin America. Known as the X-Trail Classic, the enduring popularity of this generation of X-Trail has seen this model become one of the biggest selling Nissan Sports Utility vehicles in the history of the company. Which if you think about it, is no mean feat for an automotive manufacturer that is internationally known for its high-quality SUV ranges.
