Nathan’s Road Trip

One of our Sales Team members, Nathan Barr went on a wee road trip to the West Coast over the weekend. Our Nissan X-Trail vehicle was still on the coast from the West Coast Road Show that Nissan was a part of in March. Nathan decided to make a day of it and had a road trip with his family. They drove the Qashqai over and came back with the X-Trail.

“We left a cloudy grey Christchurch at 9am and found a gorgeous clear sky at Arthur’s Pass where the packed picnic lunch was brought out, the wind was very cold! We then headed over to Greymouth to pick up the car around 1pm and then drove to Hokitika to check out the beach and go to the National Kiwi Centre. Got fish and chips on the way home and used the old Christchurch Road to head back to the state highway and found a quiet spot on the way back to put the blanket out and eat them. We got back home to Christchurch around 8:30pm.”

“The X-Trail was fantastic. Despite all the family being on board and with plenty of gear in the back, everyone still had heaps of space and were able to enjoy the long journey in absolute comfort. The car drove beautifully on the open road. Fuel economy was excellent and all around it was an great day out.”

Some beautiful New Zealand scenery on the way to the Coast.

The Qashqai has now been swapped over for the X-Trail.

A great wee spot for a fish and chip dinner.

What an awesome day out, finishing up with a beautiful sunset.
