What's the used Nissan X-Trail 4x4 like?

For the second-generation Nissan X-Trail, the Japanese company took an evolutionary approach to the styling. If you just take a passing glance, you could easily mistake it for the original model, introduced in 2001. The trick in telling them apart is that there’s a kink in the rear pillar of the 2007 model, plus it’s a bigger, taller and more slab-sided car.

The interior was an improvement on the old X-Trail, with higher quality materials. There are still some cheap feeling plastics in there, but they’re not as prevalent as they were in the 2001 X-Trail. Refinement and overall comfort are significantly better, too, but rear seat space is actually worse; head room is fine, but leg room is strangely limited.
