A Refreshing Change that Feels Good!
Several changes are on the menu of this new Pathfinder model year, including aesthetic alterations such as more rounded shapes. The vehicle is taller and wider, which allows it to offer more space for passengers, who can now be up to 8 in number!
The revamped interior is a bit more spacious, but also modernized for a greater elegance and a level of comfort that you will notice immediately! In fact, the driver is entitled to a 10-way power seat starting with the S version, but this number quickly increases to 12 settings, including 4 for the lumbar support.
Depending on the version, the SUV automatically puts you at ease by memorizing the position of your seat, your steering wheel and even the rearview mirror! If leather upholstery is your thing, it is available on many models, along with heated seats in the front and optional in the second row.
Comfort isn’t just about the seats; the Pathfinder also comes with an impressive array of amenities, including 16 storage compartments and cup holders. Furthermore, the Pathfinder’s quiet ride will allow you to rest easy, unless you prefer to enjoy the impeccable sound quality of its optional Bose audio system!
Speaking of technology, the SUV is well equipped: an 8- or 9-inch touch screen, voice recognition with text messaging function and many others are part of it. In addition, options such as the Nissan Door to Door navigation system with 3D map display and head-up display can be added to the package.
As for the engine, Nissan keeps the winning recipe of a 3.5 L V6 developing a generous 284 horsepower and 259 lb-ft of torque. However, the transmission changes from a CVT that is less popular with consumers to a 9-speed automatic that is more appealing.
All-wheel drive is also standard on all versions of the lineup, making it the ideal vehicle for getaways or simply for winter! Moreover, a 7-position mode selector allows you to adapt your driving to road conditions, and even to driving with a trailer.
Note that the vehicle can pull a 6000 lb load and hold 470L in its trunk, a figure that can rise to 1274L, or even 2280L with the seats folded down!
Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent Control are other features that ensure comfort and control while driving. And let’s not forget the standard 360 Safety Shield, which includes 6 driver assistance technologies such as automatic emergency braking. By monitoring the front and rear of the vehicle, alerting you to blind spots, cross traffic and lane departures, it truly teams up with you.
All in all, the Nissan Pathfinder is the right SUV for you, whether you are a large family, a traveller or an outdoor enthusiast. Well equipped with technology and remarkable comfort, it makes even the longest trips seem shorter and gets you to your destination with complete peace of mind!
