Nissan Pathfinder SUV

2016 Nissan Pathfinder SUV - This spacious 3-row crossover model could be the best vehicle for expanding families looking to travel in comfort and style. If you are also planning to get to your destination without spending all your dollars on fuel, then the Pathfinder is worth a lengthy and detailed review.

Nissan's Pathfinder typically covers 27 miles for every gallon on the highway and the accolades for this must go to its class-exclusive Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission.

Boasting interior standard entertainment features such as a 6 CD in-dash audio system and Tri-Zone Automatic Temperature Control, you simply cannot fail to enjoy each trip as you move majestically towards your destination. If towing is important, do not overlook the fact that the Pathfinder has a 5,000-pound towing capacity.

The performance qualities are astounding when you consider that the 2016 Nissan Pathfinder comfortably seats seven adults with 16 cubic feet of additional cargo space. Having folded the first and second rows flat, the Pathfinder's capacity goes up to 79.8 cubic feet - almost five times as much room as when the seats are in their upright position.
