All-new Nissan X-Terra gets Middle East launch: 'Sophistication and ruggedness can co-exist'

The stablemate of the Patrol is back in a fresh new guise

Fans of Nissan’s heftier creations (and we all know there are a few of those) can now get their hands on the brand’s latest version of the X-Terra.

The car, which promises to be an “ideal partner for customers seeking outdoor adventures”, was released in the Middle East at a virtual event, and it follows the earlier unveiling of the manufacturer’s Ariya and Z Proto models.

The all-new X-Terra, which Nissan says is the most capable all-round vehicle in its class, has been designed for sturdiness and poise, combining a robust four-wheel drive system with a roomy, comfortable cabin.

From a design perspective, the car’s front end resembles its sibling, the Patrol, with the latter’s V-motion grille. The body is, predictably, muscular and bold.

Powering the X-Terra is a 2.5-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine, with a seven-speed automatic transmission.

Thierry Sabbagh, managing director of Nissan Middle East, claimed the car demonstrated how “sophistication and ruggedness can co-exist”.

“We believe it will redefine what an SUV in this segment can do,” he added.

The X-Terra goes on sale this month and has a starting price of $27,200.
