Overall impression of Nissan Xterra
The Nissan Xterra is a true off-roader to its soul and reminds one of the early Jeeps and SUVs. The versatile and comfortable interior coupled with its superb performance on all sorts of terrains makes it one reliable choice for adventurous families. The only downside is its relatively poor fuel economy as compared to the new generation of crossover SUVs. The Nissan Xterra is a strong contender in the SUV class giving a neck to neck competition to Subaru Forester, Jeep Wrangler, Toyota 4Runner and Toyota FJ Cruiser in Nigerian market.
