2007 Nissan Xterra | new car review

Posted on Jun 19, 2009 by

Introduced in 2005 in the North American market as the second-generation Xterra with the original “everything you need, nothing you don’t” sport utility ethos, for this vehicle takes a great leap forward with more power, more roominess and more utility.

This mid-size SUV offers a standard 261-horsepower 4.0-litre DOHC V6 engine and ’s rugged “F-Alpha’’ platform, which it shares with the full-size Titan and Armada. Two transmissions are offered: a 5-speed automatic and a six-speed manual. Available in 4WD or 2WD versions, the Xterra also gets VDC ( Vehicle Dynamic Control) as standard.

Xterra also offers a complete system of thoughtful interior storage systems. The cargo area is highlighted by an Easy Clean Cargo Area flooring and a total of 10 cargo area utility hooks. An adjustable channel system in the cargo floor makes it easier to secure bike racks and other accessories or gear.

Key exterior styling features include large, flared fenders, a versatile roof rack with latchable lid and a rear bumper design with side steps for easy access to the roof rack. It also offers a large, powerful hood and headlights and Nissan SUV signature angled strut-style grille.

Featuring a long wheelbase for a smoother ride and greater interior room, the Xterra’s overall length is very manageable due to a reduced front overhang – which enhances manoeuverability in hill climbing and trail situations.

Xterra’s interior is spacious enough for four riders and their gear, with ample leg room, head room and cargo room. The interior is also highly flexible. The 60/40 split folding stadium-style rear seat is joined by an available fold-down front passenger seat, which creates added utility for hauling long recreational gear.

Active lives also require an active sound track, so the Xterra is offered with an available premium 300-watt Rockford Fosgate audio system with nine speakers, steering wheel controls, mp3 capability plus mp3 player-capable aux-in jack and available radio.

The Xterra is scheduled for launch in the Middle East in the latter part of 2007.
