Nissan Navara 3.0 V6
Shift - A single word that captures more than a
vision. More than a philosophy. But a dedication to looking at the familiar in a
different way. To opening the mind to new ways of thinking. And to forever
advancing the way people move through the world.
The 7-seater Nissan Pathfinder. Ingenious functionality. Rugged strength.
Relentless, both on and off-road. In a shift away from the convention dividing
SUVs into utilitarian trucks or luxury cruisers, Nissan has stretched the
boundaries, combining highly engineered performance capabilities with premium
equipment and authentic 4X4 good looks in a vehicle that lets you map your own
destiny. Standing tall and broad-shouldered with its bold styling, the Nissan
Pathfinder boasts 17" alloy wheels and roof rails, as well as a sun roof that
allows you access to fresh outdoor air.
Even in the most intimidating
surroundings, there’s no need to sacrifice interior comfort and versatility. The
Pathfinder is roomy and versatile, with generous specification that makes it
ideally equipped to accommodate not only all your family, but all your family’s
With 64 different ways to arrange its seven seats, there’s enough room for
everyone and everything you might need along the way. The second row of three
seats each fold individually, with just a pull on a lever. Concealed beneath
them are two useful, secret storage spaces that keep your personal items safe
and out of sight. The third row seats also fold separately and, when they are
both lowered, leave a large load space that’s conveniently flat. Even with all
three rows of seats upright, you can still enjoy the most luggage space in the
segment. If you need to remove something small from the luggage area, you don’t
have to open the tailgate, as the rear window opens independently.
The Pathfinder has huge cargo capacity. By folding down the second and third
rows as well as the front passenger seat, you can create an impressive 2.8m long
load space. Take away the fuss and worrywith twelve hooks to secure a
cargo-retaining net and a tonneau cover that pulls out from the second or third
row of seats to hide your luggage from inquisitive eyes.
An intelligent fusion of
powerful 4x4 capabilities and dynamic on-road performance, the people-friendly
Pathfinder is an unmistakable seven-seater, standing tall and broad-shouldered
with its bold styling, sleek 17" alloy wheels and roof rails.
Immense power, superior comfort and functionality, state of the art handling,
cruise control and versatile interior space now come together in a 4x4 that
really lets you tell better stories.
Whether you’re cruising on the
highway or navigating a rocky ravine, the Pathfinder’s comprehensive safety
system ensures that you and your loved ones finish every journey as you started
it: full of confidence.
The Pathfinder’s ABS anti-lock braking system prevents the wheels from locking
even during emergency braking, so you can still steer around unexpected
obstacles in your path. ABLS (Active Brake Limited Slip) controls all four
wheels and prevents wheel slip. Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD)
automatically regulates the pressure to the front and rear brakes, achieving the
maximum braking efficiency for the road conditions, and if you have to make an
emergency stop, the Nissan Brake Assist system automatically increases the
braking force and reduces the stopping distance. Finally, if you need to make an
evasive manoeuvre, the Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) system uses sensors to
automatically control the brake pressure on individual wheels and maintain the
engine output to enhance vehicle stability and keep you in control.
With ventilated discs front
and rear, the latest generation anti-lock system plus brake assist and
electronic brake force distribution (EBD), Pathfinder’s brakes deliver short
stopping distances in an emergency and have excellent resistance to fade: the
system is highly competitive with the brakes found on premium brand SUVs. Pedal
feel is on a par with the best car systems.
These impressive active safety features are complimented by effective passive
safety: front and side driver and passenger airbags, curtain airbags from front
passengers up to the third row, side impact bars, front active headrests and
seatbelt pretension at the front with load limiters to avoid neck and thorax
