i was thinkng between these two cars, and since i'm not into it i decided to get any advices from friends,i really like the looks of a fortuner coz its 7seater's plus its quite big! but friends told me about the problems i may encounter with it.they said that the body did'nt match the engine. while the xtrail is only 5 seater's,not that big but i don't have any idea about it's performance. pls help!!! tnx!


fortuner should be comapred to Xttera...... do they still make Xtrail?

Nissan Xttera is good...

fortuner is better than xtrail, for sure!

tnx baldrick2dogs and formatted, i did the comparisson for the two based on it's price,since the agents offered us a huge discount for xtrail,2011 model is 86,000 from the original price of 96thou and the fortuner is 98thou,but can be discounted with 7thou so it's 91thou.

i cannot afford the xterra,lol! any idea with fortuners performance?tnx!

86 to 91....just diff of 5K, I think go for fortuner,

with 2.7L engine it gives 'enough' power to this huge spacious car

you can get new 2009 Xterra standard for QR99K at nissan showroom...full options for QR103K...

fortuner has a cramped space even if it's a 7-seater

@happygolucky-never heard about that offer,tnx for letting me know,i'll try! by the way i am talking about the medium option here=))...i like ur idea painther!

what do u mean cramped somwerndmiddle?

tnx everyone!

I suggest forget the xtrail or the Fortuner.Go for the Pathfinder instead.A good car.The Xterra isn't so bad as well.

clareth... check it out at Nissan showroom on salwa road.. I was there this saturday and thats what I was told...

Go for Toyota Fortuner but make sure you get the 6 Cylinder 4.0 ltr engine :)

For sure you will not regret it compare to Nissan X-Trail.


I m also planning to go for Fortuner, can you please let me know the details of agent,who is offering fortuner for 91thou. this seems to be a good price. And what is model.


thank you so much everyone!your comments really helped us lot! @rabdulahed-that discount is a company discount,for an ordinary client they give 3thou discount.

As a rule if I want to buy a car I always look in the internet for reviews, specially from consumers. There you will find a lot of helpful informations.

I had an x trail before and had an expensive engine repair, its a fact that they have some design flaw in their engine. Fortuner in the other hand is based on a pick up truck, so don't expect a comfortable ride, besides its prone to rollover.

Maybe you can consider a honda crv, its not perfect but much better.

Note: previously owned a toyota and nissan before presently happy with honda now.


so nice of u oirog! thank you...


but Toyota is best other cars in my experience

Most welcome clareth and goodluck!

Using Fortuner for the last 3 years with no problems whatsoever. Used Scorpio earlier & managed to get rid of.

Used Mercedes & Land cruiser also earlier & looking forward to go for 4wd BMW now.

Fortuner is made in Thailand or Indonesia and X-Trail is made in Japan. However, the Fortuner is a bigger car.

I would take any Nissan over any Toyota any day. I hate Toyotas. They do cost cutting in places you don't even want to imagine.

are yu interested in xterra. I have brought it in Mar 2010 and it has run around 15,600 kms and it is full option The price is QR 95,000
