The all-new 2013 Nissan Pathfinder has swiftly risen to take a top spot in the highly competitive mid-sized SUV segment. As it enters into crossover territory, the Pathfinder has shed 500 lbs and lost a little–but not too much–towing capacity, yet still maintains its versatility. As such, the newly minted Pathfinder is perfect for growing families in San Marcos.
A Remarkable Drive
The sleeker 2013 Pathfinder’s improved aerodynamics, not to mention a significantly lighter curb weight, return a remarkable, best-in-class fuel economy of 20 mpg city/26 mpg highway and 22 combined*. It’s new 260-horsepower, 3.5-liter V6 is paired to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) for a strong, yet smooth acceleration. The Pathfinder is more maneuverable for confident handling and provides a comfortable, car-like drive that makes it perfect for roadtrips.
A Versatile Interior
If you’re wondering how the mid-sized Pathfinder slims down yet still maintains its ability to accommodate 7 passengers in its 3 rows comfortably, the answer is carefully. The cleverly designed Pathfinder remains spacious and comfortable with soft materials and accents throughout. The second row of seats have been described as theater-style due to the high visibility out the front window. They recline, slide 5-inches fore and aft, as well as tilt and slide forward to provide a wide berth for easy access to the third row! Thanks to Nissan’s EZ flex latch and glide system, even those with child safety seat in place can access the third row with convenience. Third row passengers will also find ample space and comfort with enough headroom for adults and reclining seats. With 80 cubic feet of cargo area and a hidden behind the third row, the Pathfinder can easily fit everything you need for your journey.
The Best Features
The 2013 Pathfinder’s interior is laden with the most up-to-date technology. Buttons, voice commands and a multi-purpose knob control the Pathfinder’s infotainment system in addition to the already integrated touch technology. Altogether, the Pathfinder wins with the most user-friendly interface around. The Pathfinder’s intelligence doesn’t stop there. The around-view monitor is a favorite of San Marcos drivers. The monitor conveniently displays a full, 360-degrees of all obstacles around the Pathfinder from a birds-eye view, all for convenient viewing on a 4-inch screen mounted on the instrument panel.
The 2013 Nissan Pathfinder has among the highest residual values for one of the lowest prices in its class. With a strong drive, spacious and comfortable interior, plus some of the best features around — why wouldn’t you want a Pathfinder?
