Nissan's 4x4 twins get the mildest of makeovers. Don't all rush at once
7 June 2007

Nissan's giving its Navara pick-up and Pathfinder 4x4 the mildest of makeovers.Along with the option of two new exterior colours, both cars get indicators and puddle lights in the door mirrors.Inside, all models get upgraded Bluetooth phone connections, the unit being integrated into the audio system, so that it lowers the music volume and displays the caller's ID when a phone call is received.There are also aluminium kickplates, illuminated footwells, and the Pathfinder's load area has better-quality carpet.The final tweak is the inclusion of hill-start assist on all manual Pathfinders.Sales of the tweaked cars begin in July, which is sure to mean that you can get a decent discount on the outgoing cars in the next few months.

Our Verdict

Nissan Pathfinder

The Nissan Pathfinder is a tough large SUV, but no Discovery. It's spacious but unrefined
