Nissan Pathfinder N-TREK Radio Review

Nissan Pathfinder N Trek

The Nissan Pathfinder large SUV has had a bit of an image problem over the years. The first model here in 1987 was a rough and tough four-wheel drive.

Later it re-invented itself as a soft road, best suited to carrying the kids.

Now it has progressed to being a much better-balanced car.

Most of the variants use a 3.5 litre V6 petrol engine and a CVT gear box but there is also a hybrid powertrain for the more luxurious models.

We drove the N-Trek version which adds a lot of external bling features:

black-and-silver 18-inch alloy wheels black door-handles, black roof-rails, black license plate trim, black front grille, and black wheel-arches. Clearly black is the new orange.

Seven seats and some nice safety features the Nissan Pathfinder ranges from just over $44,000 to just over $70,000 plus on roads.
