Generally speaking, the exterior design of the 2016 Nissan Xterra is not going to changes considerably. The car is going to retain its boxy shape and sturdy appearance and will only add certain elements to its outside look. As far as using the new platform it is not going to significantly affect the look of the car. It is going to be much stronger and sturdier vehicle than before but the added elements are perhaps only superficial. The headlamps, for instance, have changed for the better as the car includes some smaller rounded ones this time. The headlights are going to offer more illumination this way and the fog lights are going to be kept and will also offer a better range as they are going to be made larger this time.
