  • Comfortable and spacious interior

  • All-wheel drive is only available with the V-6
  • Some cheap hard plastic interior components
  • Sloppy handling and steering

In a 2018 comparison test that included the other cars, the 2018 Nissan Xterra placed fifth. Handling also proved to be another 2018 Nissan Xterra weak spot and we found the steering to be numb.

The 2018 Nissan Xterra, on the other hand, is a better package, as we noted in a 2017 First Test, thanks to its smooth powertrain and well-calibrated brakes that smoothly transition between regenerative and mechanical braking. However, since it isn’t a plug-in hybrid, the 2018 Nissan Xterra doesn’t have much EV mode range and can only travel around 0.5 miles on electricity.A rear view camera with rear parking sensors is now standard on all models.

The car is the only 2018 Nissan Xterra trim level that can be had with a cool two-tone exterior color scheme. The ride itself was smooth, and road imperfections were barely felt.”
