The Nissan X-Trail (Japanese: 日産・エクストレイル, Nissan Ekusutoreiru) is a compact crossover SUV produced by the Japanese automaker Nissan since 2000. It was one of Nissan's first crossover SUV and was released about the same time as several other companies' competing car-based crossovers. At its introduction, the X-Trail is positioned below the truck-based Xterra and Pathfinder.
The second-generation X-Trail shares its platform with the Rogue. The third-generation model is completely merged with the Rogue, making them virtually identical. The Rogue nameplate is mainly used in North America. For the first time, the vehicle is offered with three-row seating as an option. It also marked a departure in terms of design from a rugged boxy look to an urban-oriented crossover SUV design.
The main production plant of the X-Trail is in Kanda, Fukuoka, Japan. Parts and engines that are produced in Japan are also assembled by other Nissan plants in numerous countries.
