Pathfinder TI-L – I have just spent a week in the all-new Nissan Pathfinder, and I have to say I’m impressed. First thing you notice is that it is bigger than you realise, both outside and inside.
The top model Ti-L comes with a full shopping list of safety, little luxuries and comfort features.
Front two seats are like a lounge chair, with multiple adjustments available and both heated and cooled.
The middle two seats are equally comfortable and the third row, while ok, are best left to shorter trips for younger passengers.
The model we drove has a clever all-wheel drive system and is powered by a 3.5litre V6 petrol engine. There is no hybrid version though.
Transmission is a smooth nine speed automatic transmission that always seems to be in the right gear.
Economy can be relatively frugal or heavy depending on circumstances. It will coast easily around town which is a good thing.
Driving the Pathfinder is easy, but the over bonnet view is a little restricted. The internal layout works well and looks impressive.
I can see this being an ideal family SUV that likes to go on snow holidays or tow a smaller boat or caravan.
Nissan Pathfinder Ti-L is priced from $80,277 plus the usual costs.
