    Default New X-Trail Model - When?

    I'm in the UK and am tempted to buy a new X-Trail, but am concerned that the
    revised model will be out before too long (maybe 2007?).

    Anyone know when the new model is due to appear?

    TIA

    Over here in Canada, the X-Trail has been out for a while now. It is a
    good dependable vehicle. The big complaint about it, is that the engine
    is under powered for its size and weight. It would have been much better
    with at least with the small 6 cylinder.

    When I was shopping around for a new SUV, I as not looking for any great
    performance. But, when I tried the X-Trail, I found it to lack power for
    passing on the highway, compared to other vehicles that I tried. The
    ride however was very comfortable, and the vehicle was very easy to
    handle and park compared to most other SUV's.

    One other thing that bugged me was that the instrument cluster is in the
    centre rather in front of the driver. I found this to be annoying. I
    like to see my gauges in front of me when I drive any vehicle.

    If you can go the few bucks more, the X-Terra is the much better buy. It
    is more durable, has descent power, and is much sturdier. This was my
    choice between the two.

    What engines do you get in Canada then? Certainly UK models get a 136bhp Dci
    diesel, 2.0 (140) and 2.5 (165) petrols.

    The Dci is the engine of choice and pretty capable, for what it is (lots of
    torque) and chips to 150bhp. 40mpg too.

    The 2.0l is sluggish but returns just about acceptable mpg.

    The 2.5 is very brisk, but can be thirsty. Driven normally and not towing
    however, it will return the same if not better mpg as the 2.0l.

    Japanese markets have a lovely 280bhp turbo option, but we dont get that
    over here
