Nissan has revealed the production version of its latest Pathfinder SUV, first seen in concept form at this year's NAIAS in Detroit.
It moves away from the outgoing model in terms of form language, introducing a far more organic and car-like aesthetic. The 2013 model is almost 230kg lighter than its predecessor with a monocoque bodyshell that allowed Nissan designers to create a more aerodynamic exterior without losing headroom or trunk capacity.
Front and rear spoilers, rear tire deflectors, specially-designed headlights and rear suspension fairings all feature in an attempt to improve the car's aerodynamics, while a wide chrome grille, recessed front windshield wipers and chrome door handles add to its improved aero characteristics.
The sunroof has one sliding front panel and a fixed rear panel extending over the second and third rows, complementing the large windows. Inside, the car seats seven with best-in-class front headroom, front legroom and overall passenger volume.
The latest Advanced Drive-Assist Display is found in the center of the instrument panel, featuring a 4-inch color display that can be customized to show the driver key information. Another touchscreen monitor provides control of the navigation and other features.
