Nissan Pathfinder Review
For the past six months we have been road testing the new Nissan Pathfinder, which has been dubbed the ‘most intelligent 4×4 we have ever thought of’-so we certainly had high expectations when we first picked it up!
We’ve been up and down the country in the Pathfinder, towing our new Inos caravan and have driven on motorways, country lanes and muddy fields in a range of weather conditions- so we have really put the vehicle to the test and it hasn’t failed to impress!
The Pathfinder includes a range of hi-tech equipment including sat-nav which found even the most remote places with ease; fantastic entertainment system with a 6 CD autocharger, six speakers, 9GB HDD music service- so there was never a dull moment during any excursions.
The features of the Pathfinder make it an overall more enjoyable drive than other vehicles we’ve driven – the stability of the 4×4 makes it more secure; the cruise control feature creates a more relaxing drive and the heated front seats and leather upholstery creates a more comfortable experience.
The intelligence of the car extends to rain sensor wipers, audio with Bluetooth compatibility, a colour rear parking camera – a feature which makes pitching even easier than ever before.
Sales Director at Fifth Wheel, Adrian Parry-Jones, said: “The new Pathfinder is an excellent model and it is very strong for towing the Inos due to the combination of large power and the small engine size of 2.5 litres. It is a smooth and quiet drive which meets all the safety requirements. It is very spacious and comfortable and with seven seats it is ideal to take the whole family out in.”
Our verdict is that it is a comfortable and enjoyable ride, which coped with every condition we threw at it. It can certainly cope with any weather and road conditions and is strong enough to pull our Inos caravan. The vehicle is fuel efficient and we noticed a big saving on long journeys. We would definitely recommend in to anybody who is towing a caravan.
Prices of the Pathfinder start from £31,000.
