What's the used Nissan Pathfinder 4x4 like?
The Nissan Pathfinder has its own distinct place in the brand's 4x4 line-up, between the X-Trail and Patrol.
It looks suitably rugged inside and out, but what it loses in outright style, it makes up for with hard-wearing practicality. The driving position is good, the dash is well laid out, and there's enough space for five adults, albeit a little less than in rivals like the Land Rover Discovery.
In most models, there's also a folding third row of seats in the huge boot, to make the Pathfinder a seven-seater, but these are really only suitable for children.
It's a fine off-roader, too, but shown up by rivals on the road. The ride is firm at low speeds, the body rolls a lot through bends and the diesel engine is noisy. All in all, a Discovery is a far better drive.
