The SUV of the New Millennium
Great looking body design, rides great offroad and on, a lot of features
Very popular, long waiting lists to buy, perhaps too many features
My sister, who is 23, just purchased a silver Nissan Xterra. This is her first SUV, and I understand that this is the first year that Nissan has made the Xterra. A perfect match. Personally, I think it is the best looking Sport Utility around. A lot of them seem to have a boxy look. And some seem to be to be space ship-looking (overly rounded off). The Xterra has a perfect balance between the two. The interior is very roomy and the seats are very luxurious, almost like you're in a big, family car. There are also many neat accessories. Now my sister didn't purchase the off-road package or any of the other extras. But she did get the bike rack up top and the first aid kit in the back. Both add to the sleek look of the vehicle. The car drives very well, both off-road and on. We have taken it into some pretty rough terrain, and have had no problems with bottoming out or getting stuck by any means. You truly get the best of both of worlds (luxury and ruggedness) with the Xterra.
