“I was very surprised at just how comfortable it is to drive a fuel cell car. You get in, turn the key and off you go, just like with a normal car. Although some of the uphill sections were challenging, the speed was still very impressive.” said Frank Eickholt, member of the Nissan 24 Hours Nürburgring race team.

I love the nissan X-Trail but i really hate it’s front bumper and intakes the bolder and aggressiveness turns into smooth and modern.
