Yet the 2013’s ride quality is significantly improved with much less corner-roll and a better feel for the pavement. The interior cabin has class-leading functionality plus high-quality materials. For most seven-passenger midsize crossovers with a 2-3-2 seating set-up, the third-row passengers become temporary gymnasts whenever entering or exiting the vehicle. This is not true in the Pathfinder, however, due to the EZ Flex seating system in which second-row seat sections can be tilted and slid forward so they don’t need to be climbed over for third-row access. Four trims, starting with the base model S and followed by the SV, SL and top-level Platinum are offered by Nissan. Features equipped standard throughout the model range include tri-zone (driver/front-passenger/rear) climate control, 18” alloy wheels, and tire pressure monitoring system with easy-fill tire alert.

Just a year ago the Pathfinder was one of the last old-school SUV’s in the midsize segment. With that formula no longer working, the new crossover has thrust itself into the thick of the competition. Much like the Pathfinder, Jeep’s classic Grand Cherokee has traded off-road prowess for on-road refinement as well, but is still highly capable in the dirt and has more powertrain options with seating for only five. Another rival, the Ford Explorer, has also exchanged the truck platform for a unibody chassis. The Explorer has experienced a similar improvement in ride quality as the Nissan but offers better fuel-efficiency with an available EcoBoost engine. Areas where the Pathfinder falls short are cargo space and third-row legroom, both of which are found in greater amounts within the Chevrolet Traverse.

Though it may disappoint off-road enthusiasts, the new design of the Nissan Pathfinder will surely find interest among a diverse group of shoppers.
