What Car? says

2 out of 5 stars

For This is a real workhorse: it's good off-road, and has a fine degree of practicality, too

Against Some rivals are bigger inside. They also ride and handle better, and have more class

Verdict This is a fine car, but we'd rather spend a bit more and get a Land Rover Discovery

Go for… 2.5 dCi

Avoid… 4.0 V6 T-Spec

Nissan Pathfinder 4x4
  • 1. Compared with rivals like the Land Rover Discovery, the Pathfinder is something of a bargain
  • 2. Most models have foldaway seats in the boot, but they're best left to kids
  • 3. It's a fine off-roader, but the Pathfinder is shown up by rivals on the road
  • 4. The most sensible option is to avoid the costly-to-run petrol and stick to entry-level trims
  • 5. Expect good reliability: Nissan does well in reliability surveys, and other 4x4s from the company have proved very hardy
