Editor's Overview

The 2014 Nissan Xterra is rugged enough to tread where modern crossover SUVs dare not venture, namely deep off-road. Never intended to be a luxury cruiser, the Xterra makes no apologies for its simple interior, firm ride and tough-as-nails reputation. This is a vehicle for people who love adventuring, getting lost and bouncing over boulders and snow berms.

A compact SUV, great turn radius, is great for transporting multiple pets!

I love my Xterra, I just wish it got better gas mileage. It seems like the minute you hit a quarter tank, gas is sucked out at twice the speed, even if you do nothing different. I also wish the trunk window could crack a bit, cause I have dogs that I do not want trying to stick their heads out the back seat windows from the trunk area.

I would definitely recommend this vehicle to family and friends.

I love my SUV but the tires went quick! But I love how safe I feel so high up and I feel that my family is comfortable and safe as well. Ok on gas and decent trunk space. There also is extra storage on top of vehicle so it's convenient! I would definitely recommend this vehicle and I love it in black!! Great in the snow too!

- Lisa C

Great interior design for the car.

Super comfortable & reliable! Love how spacious it is. The air conditioning is amazing, very powerful, perfect for living in a hot city year around. Gas mileage is pretty good. Great turning radius. Love the interior, back seats fold down super easily to allow for more room if needed to pack the car up.
