The new Nissan X-Trail has been spotted testing in the US.
The X-Trail SUV is entering the final stages of development ahead of a launch at next month’s Frankfurt motor show, with UK sales tipped to get under way later this year.
The new car is set to be given much clearer positioning within the Nissan line-up. When the next-generation Qashqai arrives early next year, there will be no seven-seat version, so the X-Trail will be Nissan’s sole offering in the seven-seat SUV segment.
The firm closely previewed the new X-Trail with its stylish Hi-Cross concept at the 2012 Geneva motor show. The new X-Trail promises more road-biased ride and handling than the outgoing car.
