New looks and engine for Pathfinder

  • New look and updated 2.5-litre diesel for Nissan Pathfinder
  • All-new 3.0-litre V6 diesel available from June
  • On sale now with prices from £28,495 on the road

Nissan has tweaked its 4x4 Pathfinder with additional equipment and a new look.

The Pathfinder gets a new bonnet and grille, more rounded bumpers and new Xenon headlights.

The interior has also been upgraded with revised door trims, new seat fabric and new instrument dials. Practicality has also been improved due to new door storage bins that can now hold an A3 map book and a one-litre drinks bottle at the same time.

Nissan is also offering a new integrated navigation, communication and music system called Connect Premium. It's an optional extra costing £1,300 and features live traffic updates and where to find restaurants and hotels.

There will be a choice of two diesels: the improved 2.5-litre dCi and all-new 3.0-litre V6. 

The 2.5-litre engine now produces around 190bhp, while pulling power increases to by 47Nm to 450Nm. Nissan claims CO2 emissions have fallen by 40g/km to 224g/km, which drops it two tax bands from the most expensive band M to band K. It also means showroom tax drops from £950 to £550 at current rates.

Nissan claims the 3.0-litre V6 diesel will produce around 231bhp, has a maximum pulling power of 550Nm and will be available from June.

The Pathfinder range starts from £28,495 on the road and is on sale now.
