Nissan X-Trail - Top reasons to buy
The Nissan X-Trail has been one of the top performers for the Japanese auto giant. Nissan has consistently upgraded the X-Trail to keep it relevant against the competitors such as Kia Sorento, Hyundai Tucson, and Mazda CX-5. Even after years of its launch, the car remains one of the top options in the segment. The facelift it received in 2018 made the X-Trail one of the best options available on the market. Let us look at some of the top reasons to buy the Nissan X-Trail in UAE.

It is also equipped with the power panoramic moonroof for an unhindered view of the skies. Nissan offers five colour options – Palatial Ruby, Metallic Slate, Brilliant Silver, Blue Pearl, and Solid Red.
The interior design boasts of premium offerings and extra space. The steering wheel is flat-bottomed which is believed to make getting in and out of the car a little easier.

The premium look is completed by a leather covered shift knob. Both the interior and exterior designs of the new X-Trail are one of the best available in the segment.
