The Nissan Pathfinder, Nissan's go-anywhere family-sized 4x4 already offers plenty of what people want - including outstanding value for money. Now a new slimmed-down range focuses on meeting buyer demands as never before
Bringing it into line with the rest of the Nissan line-up, the 2009 Nissan Pathfinder comes in Acenta and Tekna versions only. As before, both are super-strong 4x4s with unashamed 4x4 looks, a potent and refined 2.5 dCi diesel engine and a cabin with MPV-style versatility.
The Nissan Pathfinder will seat up to seven, accommodate a load up to 2.8m long on its flat cargo deck, tow a caravan, boat or trailer up to a braked maximum of 3000kg - and if necessary do it all off-road in awful weather. Standard ESP stability control keeps you safe when things get slippy, while selectable low-range gears with the ALL-MODE four-wheel drive system mean this is one 4x4 that can take care of itself when the road runs out.
Based on the former Sport manual, the new Nissan Pathfinder Acenta costs from just £26,895 but doesn't lack for necessities. Seven seats, 17in alloy wheels, ALL-MODE 4wd, six CD autochanger, ESP, privacy glass, Bluetooth connectivity, roof rails, six airbags and automatic headlights and wipers are all standard.
The Nissan Pathfinder Tekna takes over from the Aventura and adds luxuries to shame many more expensive large 4x4s. Every Nissan Pathfinder Tekna comes with leather upholstery, electric heated front seats, DVD satnav, rear parking camera, sunroof, intelligent key, xenon headlights, side steps and cruise control. A custom Bose sound system is included, too - previously it was only available on special versions.
The Nissan Pathfinder Tekna is available with manual gears (from £29,895) or automatic (from £31,170). But until 30th June 2009 buyers can put Nissan's family 4x4 into their family on a 0% finance deal when bought on Nissan's PCP scheme, Preferences. With a minimum 10% deposit, an Nissan Pathfinder Acenta costs from just £329 a month and the Tekna from £359 a month.
The new Nissan Pathfinder 4x4s are available to order now with first deliveries due in June 2009.
