2010 Nissan Pathfinder goes upmarket in NZ

Nissan’s revised Pathfinder is getting a facelift for 2010 along with a power increase and new equipment. The price will stay the same at $76,800 for the mid-sized, seven seater 4WD Sports Utility Vehicle.

Nissan has rationalised its Pathfinder range to a single high specification model based on the outgoing Ti version. It will only be available with a turbo diesel engine and a five speed automatic gearbox.

New features on the revised Pathfinder include Xenon headlights with washers, intelligent key operation, an auxiliary input for iPod operation and Bluetooth hands free phone system with the main controls on the steering wheel.

The other big change is under the bonnet where Pathfinder gets the same engine as the Navara ST-X ute with a 2.5 litre power plant. Power is up 11 percent to 140 kWs from 128 kWs and torque has risen to 47 Nm from 403 to 450 Nm. Fuel economy has been lowered by 1.3 litres per 100 kilometres to 9.0 l/100km and CO2 emissions are down 38 g/km.

Visually the Pathfinder has a new front for 2010 with a new bonnet, bigger grille and bumper which adds 80 mm to the Pathfinder’s length.

The Pathfinder’s cabin has also received attention. There’s new leather seat upholstery and chrome highlights to the instrument binnacle which receives new dials. The steering wheel boss has illuminated controls for the audio system and Bluetooth hands free phone system. The audio system itself now has a six CD in dash auto changer with an auxiliary MP3 player input jack.

The 2010 Pathfinder retains all the following standard safety features; electronic safety programme, hill descent control, hill start assist and six air bags. The ABS brakes also have brake assist and electronic brakeforce distribution. All seven seats have three point belts with pretensioners and load limiters on the front seat belts which have height adjustable shoulder anchorages. There are anti intrusion door beams and front and rear crumple zones in the chassis — body in the event of an accident.

In the cabin there are also steering wheel controls for the cruise control, sound system and drive computer. The cruise control now features a Speed Limiter and the dual zone climate control air conditioning has added rear outlets, while the front leather seats have power operation. There is a sun roof with blind, 17 inch alloy wheels, side steps, front fog lights and folding door mirrors with indicator repeaters and puddle lamps.

Finally, a new colour, Black Pepper has been added to the range.
