    Posted: 05 Aug 2014 at 10:33pm
Thought I'd have a peek at the +2 replacement in our new Nissan dealer less than 1.5 miles from my house....
First off I had 3 salesman and all the technicians come out and admire my QQ+2 with one saying he could sell it tomorrow ... Yea... usual salesman bull5hit, but he probably could....😄😄😄
They were most impressed with the Auto Close mirrors and Windows and said that they had been asked by buyers where they might purchase some so I pointed him to this site and ACE DVDs so Dave might have a bit more business coming his way but I'm not after commission.....😉
Although very similar there were a few differences I noted to the QQ. The sides on the XTrail haven't got the new Panal Ridge side line and would say the sides are more like the +2 being smoother. The one I looked at was the Tekna and the X trail did have the Air Con Vents in the back where the QQ did not.
I'm glad that they have got rid of the nasty Pewter Inserts on the Tekna Wheels and though a different design have obviously taken note of the Wheel voting thread on here and kept them more in keeping with the much better Onyx wheels of the NTec.
That was the other thing, you can get an NTec in the XTrail but not on the QQ.....
There is more head area in the rear most seats as I tried them out and at 6'4" I could JUST sit in them without my head nearly being snapped off at a 90 degree angle like in my +2..... But hey only the Kids ever go in them.
The XTrail deffo seemed wider than my +2 and did seem overall a bigger more sumptuous car.
I only went in to have a look but the usual over enthusiastic salesman had my +2 priced up and was looking into finance deals.
Mine having 26900 on the clock and being 3.5 years old was worth to them 12K tops.

Now the XTrail bad points (IMO)
28K for the NTec with Met paint and 30K for the Tekna......

The Engine choices IMO are Cr4p!!!
They only do this car with Max engine size of the new 1.6 Diesel which gives a pathetic 0-60 in 10.5 seconds (nearly a second slower than my +2) !!!!!!!!
Ok, I know it's a large XOver but I would still like to pull away from the lights faster than a granny in a 1.8 Zafira.....
As I've said before, the Santa Fe we hired out at work was extremely quick and torquey, even with 5 large blokes in!.... The salesman said that. Nissan were influenced by the government and European guidelines to bring down emissions etc......Yea....their still making the GTR though.....Just the choice of a bigger engine would be nice.

All in all a nice looking Car and would of seriously thought about purchasing in a few years, but not without an engine that can match the size of the Car that warrants that sort of price Tag.....

Thanks Affman, from ntec boy here with the Pewter wheels😀.

The cost of the xtrail prices me out of the sector now. Providing Nissan haven't thrown it together with substandard parts, they may have a good car. 😉

Had a brief sniff around one at my dealer at the weekend.
Like the auto closing tailgate but it's just a QQ on steroids for the price.
Much prefer my QQ

I still love mine and next to other cars it stands out a mile. it's still got low mileage so I shall be keeping it for a good while.
It's all a bit weird as the Facelift came out 4 years ago and I was heavily into it along with CF and a load of us. Now a newer one has finally come out you just can't get the same enthusiasm if you haven't got one....😄
Even Frankie has indulged in a new one....😳....and he had one of the originals .... 😄😄😄

PS..sorry to here about the wheels JohnCS.......😒😄😄

Must admit I prefer the overall look of the new X Trail to the new QQ. They've just kept the original spec names, Visia, Acenta, n-tec & Tekna - whether  these will change later I dont know. Other engines will come, preferably with a decent petrol engine as next time I'm going to have to change to that due to low mileage & dpfs (only done 2300 mile in current 14 month old 1.5 +2 & feel I'm tempting fate with the dpf - though prob not done enough miles to clog it upLOL , we give it a blast down they motorway every couple of weeks to give it a clean out) I'd just want the 5 seat version for the boot space as at least with the X Trail you get a choice of 5 or 7 with the same size car. I must admit the Merc B-Class & Ford C-Max or Grand C-Max will be contenders again this time though - assuming the models available at the time of changing are on par with the current models.

Agree entirely Aff, not that fussed about the 2014 QQ & of course as I forgot to put above another option would be to keep the +2 for another couple of yearsThumbs Up

On the price - is that for a manual 1.6?  If so sounds the same as a QQ Confused......................

QQ4 (if I ever get it) will be £3k more than QQ3 was Cry.

However, half of that would be down to the fact it is a dirty dirty diesel not a nice clean petrol and the other half is down to the fact it is a new model (premium attached and development costs) plus all the additional technology at my little fingertips.  Bargain I reckon.

Anyway, that's how I am convincing myself to shell out LOL

Now shoot me down.

OK - been for a walk out of the office, down through the gardens (scent of wet pine trees - ahhh Tongue) down one side of the pier, back up the other side then up the cliff side using God knows how many steps Dead.

Head now clear even if the rest of me is knackered Dead Dead.

Configured an equivalent X-trail to QQ4 and it is £4k more Shocked.

However I could have Haptic Blue paint (I like that colour) and cream leather interior (lightens up my QQ3 nicely) Tongue.

So Why TF can't I have that on  QQ4? Angry

G5 BOY, your mention of cream leather interior would have been my choice, if offered. I do wonder why Nissan gave only one colour for the QQ leather.

Blimey - that's rich coming from you Mr Afftopic LOL.

Big project that will fill 2 months has been delayed for a week after I created a gap for it Angry hence I am idle and bored, hence I am going even further off topic................

I really wanted to like the Mokka and fancied one until I sat in it Dead.  Just configured one of those as close as I can to QQ4 and it's the same £ Shocked.  On the plus side Vauxhall will always knock lumps off the price and have the lifetime warranty.  On the minus side I still don't like it.

Stand by for more off topic hijacking of Affman's thread Evil Smile and just you very dare delete me Affers Wink.

Back on topic for a quickie...................Got my weekly comic yesterday (aka Auto Express).

Previous review of 2014 Qashqai gave it 4 stars out of 5 Tongue.

Qashqai on their fleet is so popular loads of staff have been driving and loving it.  The main user gives it 5 stars out of 5 in this week's issue TongueTongue.

Yeah the reviews of the X-Trail havent been that great but a lot of the negativity comes from old die hard fans who resent the fact that it has lost its boxy off roader look and also that is more of an all rounder now what with being available in 2wd as well as 4wd.
Anybody know where its made as a matter of intrest (to save me  go lookingLOL). I presume somewhere in Europe.
