The automaker is making the Pathfinder more comfortable inside and out, returning it to a unibody platform — instead of its previous body-on-frame design — and adding more creature comforts to the cabin.
“One of the dilemmas facing families with both young children and infants/toddlers is getting the older kids in the third row without having to remove a child seat mounted in the second row. This innovative design solves that issue,” Al Castignetti, Nissan vice president and general manager, said in a press release.
Both rows also slide and recline for passenger comfort and fold flat for cargo hauling. There’s also underfloor storage in the cargo area.
The 2013 Pathfinder goes on sale this fall.
