The X-Trail badge is not new at Nissan nor is the Rogue, but they've usually been very different vehicles.
If you think you've seen this guy before it's because it's the sibling of the U.S. named Nissan Rogue but known elsewhere as the X-Trail.
So basically Nissan is synchronizing the 2 name plates.
X-Trail now features seating for up to 7. I'm pleased to see the inclusion of Live Google services in the nav rig.
They also talk about a slew of coming apps, most of which will probably be superfluous in the car.
Now while the U.S. Rogue soldier is armed with the uninteresting 2-1/2 liter 4 and a CVT, this new platform sharing with the global X-Trail might mean we could expect a diesel Rogue with a cogged gearbox, but don't hold your breath.
