Family Reviews the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder


There was little left untouched in the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder's redesign. Gone is the boxy, beefy SUV, says Family reviewer Courtney Messenbaugh. In its place is a curvy crossover that easily hauls seven. The Pathfinder shines when it comes to third-row access, Courtney says. It takes its cues from the Infiniti JX35 and has second-row seats that can slide and tilt forward even when a forward-facing child-safety seat is installed. Family life just got a little easier.

2013 Nissan Pathfinder Family Review



Saw one on the road today, looks like a bigger murano. Can only say about exterior - it sucks! Looked like a sharp SUV before, now looks like another Japanese unappealing and boring vehicle. Hopefully xTerra will hold true to the x.


Pathfinder... Or asphalttourer is more suitable?


First, it looks nothing like a Murano. Design is a huge improvement over the aging outgoing Pathfinder design.

True, it is less of an "off-road" SUV but that is precisely what is making it much more popular.


I think it's a huge improvement over the looks of the 2005-12 model. It looked like a wagon. Thank G it looks nothing like the Murano, either. If you want off-road, go buy the short version... xTerra.

My only gripe is this 5 passenger mid-segment that's being used to bump prices on the 7 seaters (murano, edge, etc.) What other point is there for every carmaker to sell two 5 passenger models? Nissan has 3, for cryin out loud!
