2020 Nissan Pathfinder

Pros: Competitive pricing; user-friendly audio and climate controls; comfortable ride, especially in highway cruising

Cons: Disappointing fuel economy; higher noise levels than many class competitors; 3rd-row seating is sized for kids

CG Says: The 2020 Nissan Pathfinder is essentially unchanged. Pathfinder is a crossover midsize SUV with three rows of seating. The sole powertrain is a 284-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 paired with a CVT transmission. Front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive are available on all models. Available features include automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot alert, rear-cross-traffic alert, surround-view camera with moving-object detection, rear door alert, and hands-free liftgate. Nissan’s 7-passenger midsize SUV offers smooth power and excellent cargo flexibility, along with fine driving manners and a good selection of features at reasonable prices. The Pathfinder’s primary demerit is real-world fuel economy that doesn’t live up to many class competitors.
