The first generation was unveiled at the Paris Motor Show and shared the platform with the Almera and the Pathfinder.
All X-Trails came with the ability to switch between 4-wheel drive and 2-wheel drive via a convenient switch on the dashboard. In the UK, the trim variants were SE, Sport, SVE and T-Spec with a limited edition Fatface sold for a short time.
The second generation came out in 2007 and was shown at the Geneva Motor Show with sales starting in Japan and then Europe, Australia and then Mexico. In Japan, there were two engine options, 2.5-litre petrol and 2.0 litre which were available with both the entry-level S trim and top-level X model.
A third-generation (2013) was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor show and built on a CMF-CD platform which was shared with the Qashqai and the Renault Koleos. Nissan dropped the former boxy appearance in favour of a more rounded aesthetic and sold the X-Trail in 190 countries. In Japan, there was the option to add a third row of seating, but the X-Trail was never really built to seat 7/8 passengers.
The fourth generation was this time displayed at the Shanghai Auto Show on 19th April 2021, a full year after its Rogue counterpart came out in Northern America. The standard engine on this recent model was a larger 2.5-liters in displacement.
