This is awesome deal.
0% for 6 years.

How much is the required down payment?

I had been to the Nissan showroom for my neighbour and upon knowing about my Tucson, they offered me the TD of Xtrail and I must say it's a marvellous SUV - suspension, gear box, engine, equipment...I test drove the AT and it was one hell of a drive.

Yes, they also told me the new engine does 15kmpl.
4 years warranty takes the cake.

Do update us on the details of the finance scheme.

Cheers!

If the finance scheme has no hidden costs, go for it man...

@neo_trace: The Rs 4 lakh discount on the X-Trail is mouthwatering. I'm been thinking of upgrading, and have extensively test-driven all the SUVs in the Rs 18 lakh - Rs 25 lakh segment. The X-Trail really ticked off all the right boxes in terms of safety, equipment, luxury and drive. The off-putting element was the cost - nearly Rs 30 lakh for the AT version in Pune. It makes complete sense @ Rs 25 lakh.
BTW: the X-Trail has received a cosmetic upgrade in a lot of markets. The engine remains the same but the MID and ICE have been upgraded. I was told by Nissan that this version won't be coming to India. The Rs 4 lakh off makes me think maybe it is!!

Why wouldn't it? The X-Trail is a CBU, hence it would cost them more to offer a different variant to the Indian market.

Dear Mr. Sandeep,

Good day and a warm welcome from Nissan. Thank you for contacting us. We will be more than happy to assist you with your query.

We are sorry as we do not have any plans for the launching new face-lifted X-Trail in India.

However we will keep you updated once we have planned.

For any query please feel free to contact our customer care-1800-209-4080.

Hope this answers your query satisfactorily. Please feel free to get in touch with us if you need further assistance. Thank you for your time and wish you happy motoring.

Regards

Team Nissan

I'm appending a mail I got from Nissan customer care regarding the X-Trail. Like you I also assumed the obvious - get a car that's already made for many markets into India than make one specifically for India; considering the numbers are very small. Again, obviously, I assumed too much!

Is the Discount applicable Pan-india or is it the dealer who is giving the discount? Even i was looking for a Diesel SUV, but i do India's potholed highways a lot more than City driving.

Do let us know the Final OTR price.

Cheers..

If you ask Maruti about the new Swift (which is just around the corner BTW), they'll write you the same. Product plans & launches are closely kept secrets. No business - leave aside a car manufacturer - will publicly reveal their future business strategy.

The X-trail is brilliant, though I personally do not like the looks of it. A friend who has run 60K+ on the odo with original clutch & suspension, swears by it.

After going thru non-existent roads on way to a Golf Course in Gurgaon, I bought his argument hands down.

Inspite of the abuse, it still feels "tight" & "crisp", but I beg to differ on it's capabilities being at par with the fortuner..they are leagues apart

Footnote : I am seeing a lot of X-trails on the roads nowadays - new ones !!





Cheers

toyota has reliability on its side. as well as a better network of dealers and service centres. plus the resale of a toyota will be much higher.

keeping these in mind. fortuner makes more sense

Mahindra First Choice in Vasant Kunj is offering a 2008 Model Nissan X-Trail Manual done 60K Kms for 12 lacs if anybody is interested.
I went there to look for a Camry, and they showed me this, and it looked very tempting. I already own a Scorpio which I drive to Leh and beyond almost every year so am not too keen on the X-Trail.

Hi
I drove the 2007 (new model) Petrol AT for almost 25k. It is a gem of an SUV with high class ride quality. The mid range burst is very addictive, even though it was a CVT!

Read reviews, before you decide about its dynamics, it highly rated against CRV/RAV4 in terms of ride quality etc. I had one situation, where I was driving at 140k and had to break because of a stupid Tucson, and I had only less than 100 mts to do that. It did stop without any fuss. And my friend next to me, couldn't believe and simply said 'wow'. It has 4 wheel disc breaks/ABS/EBD. Fortuner's breaks are weak and only 2 wheel disc breaks. X-Trail is made in Japan!

The only issue with X-Trail is that it is 5 seater. Also, if you google the new x-trail, its better looking than the current one. Very sporty looking, though not sure when it is coming to India.

With this sweet deal, I would rather pick up x-trail because it is more classy and premium. Fortuner is more of a big elephant, and only the owner knows what it lacks (ride quality/smoothness/manageability of its size etc).

Default Re: 2011 Nissan X-Trail or Toyota Fortuner

the x trail is indeed superb. and much easier in the city than the Fortuner is. Also, like the new Subaru Forester it is a really comfy, loaded vehicle. I would choose it any day over the Fortuner. Only glitch is that all these vehicles in India, are priced way over the top in comparison to their international brothers/ cousins. This idiotic pricing factor alone, detracts hugely from their desirability for me. It is only in our country with its often skewed priorities and confused poseur attitude, that what is simply a nice utility vehicle, becomes somehow a "lifestyle" statement which only the very well off can afford. That's a clear lament of mine and I do hope that things change pretty fast for us! India with its terrible road surfaces in cities, highways and rural areas is the perfect SUV market - high GC, 4WD, safety kit etc would really be an advantage for us - if only the manufacturers would bring their efforts into indigenization and hence, lower their prices their sales would simply shoot up into the stratosphere!
