New face pend­ing

Wheels (Australia) - - Head to Head -

NIS­SAN’S up­dated Pathfinder – due here in the first half of 2017 – should ad­dress many of the prob­lems of this fourth-gen­er­a­tion model, start­ing with the steer­ing. An 11-per­cent-quicker rack and “im­proved cor­ner­ing feel” will com­bine with an ex­ten­sively re­vised sus­pen­sion tune (firmer spring and damper rates, new re­bound springs in the front struts) to hope­fully lessen the vague sog­gi­ness that makes the cur­rent mono­coque Pathfinder feel like it still has a sep­a­rate chas­sis. Fresh front styling gives the MY17 model a much sharper look, and it’ll also boast up-to-date driveras­sis­tance and mul­ti­me­dia tech. But the con­fus­ing, but­ton-heavy con­trol lay­out will re­main un­changed.
