2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

Following on the Pathfinder’s redesign last year, Nissan has a new hybrid version of the seven-seat crossover for the 2014 model year. The Pathfinder Hybrid’s drivetrain consists of a supercharged four-cylinder, electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack, and Nissan cites fuel economy of 25/27 mpg city/highway. It competes with the Toyota Highlander Hybrid and hits dealerships in late summer 2013.

ExteriorThe Pathfinder Hybrid is nearly indistinguishable from its gas-only sibling. Look closely and you’ll notice that the hybrid version has unique LED taillights and some badges on the front doors and liftgate, but otherwise it carries forward the Pathfinder’s now-familiar design cues. Exterior features include:

  • Standard 18-inch alloy wheels; 20-inch wheels available
  • Chrome treatments including the grille and door handles
  • Power-operated side mirrors; available heated mirrors
  • Available fog lights
  • Available dual-pane panoramic moonroof
  • Available power liftgate with position memory

Interior The design of the Pathfinder Hybrid’s interior mirrors the regular model. To achieve its seven-occupant capacity it has two front bucket seats, a three-person second-row bench seat and a two-person third row. Both the second and third rows recline, and the second-row seat slides too. Interior features include:

  • Power-operated driver’s seat; available leather upholstery and heated and cooled front seats
  • Information screen measures 7 inches; 8-inch screen available
  • Push-button start
  • Tri-zone automatic air conditioning
  • Available heated steering wheel
  • Available navigation system, Bluetooth streaming audio
  • Available Bose premium audio
  • Available rear-seat entertainment system
  • Available remote start

Under the HoodA supercharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and an electric motor combine to produce 250 horsepower. Power is sent to the wheels through a continuously variable automatic transmission. Mechanical features include:

  • Lithium-ion battery pack located under the third-row seat
  • Front- or all-wheel drive
  • 3,500-pound maximum towing capacity when properly equipped

SafetySafety features include:

  • Side-impact airbags for the front seats

Pathfinder Platinum hybrid 4wd

All in all I’m very satisfied with the purchase 2014 Nissan Pathfinder platinum Hybrid 4wd. We bought Dec 2013 when it first come out with hybrid version. Not really looking to buy on that moment . But the wife fell in love with the car won’t leave the dealership. Till we took her home. We love using path when go for a long drive, LA and S. Lake Tahoe. Fuel consumption about 25mpg combine. Sometimes I had to pull a small TRavel trailer about 18ft and go camping. The fuel consumption with trailer 12-10mpg combine. I start notice CVt felt jumpy, when I pull TT but once, I replace the CVT filter and CVt oil it’s back to normal. Both rear shock been replaced and the engine 12v battery was replaced too. Now the path has about 52k miles have not had any major issue. Path still run like a champ.


Very disappointed with mileage per gallon!

So, disappointed in my hybrid! Bought Nissan pathfinder 2014 with very low mileage (19500). So basically almost new car. Nissan states the gas usage is 25/28 (city/freeway) I did a thorough test in the city and got 14 mpg, not even close to 25. And i did not use A/C often because it is rarely hot in San Francisco where I live. I was mostly driving in the outer richmond area of SF where it is not too busy. So I had good driving conditions, nothing extreme. I never raced. Never towed any other cars and still 14 mpg. On freeway I got 21 mpg which is still far from 28 promised by Nissan. No other things matter to me after I discovered such a deceive. I took the car to Nissan SF on Van Ness street and a guy started telling me that SF is a busy city and that he had seen other pathfinders producing even less miles - 12 or 9 mpg. Really? The fact he had seen worse mileage does not mean it is normal. They are currently doing a diagnostic on the car but I am sure they will find nothing. I will have to just pay $185 for the diagnostic. I will update this review after I hear from Nissan dealer... To be continued....


We love our Pathfinder

So we do love our Pathfinder, but there are some caveats to be aware of. First off, on the positive, the car gets good gas mileage. We regularly get about 23MPG. What is weird is that the mileage for short trips around town is abysmal, typically about 12MPG. When combined with regular driving, including HWY, it bumps up to 23 for us. I think this is because the car is always running for short trips. It never seems to go to all-electric mode like a Prius does. But we are satisfied with the mileage. The interior is spacious, attractive and comfortable. However the climate controls can be funky. For example, in order for the folks in the rear seat to get air, you need to have the A/C on. The car drives beautifully, but for some reason the suspension is awful. The car doesn't take bumps well. So, there are some flaws in the car, but for us we love that we have an attractive, reliable, comfortable vehicle that gets good gas mileage. I would highly recommend the car.
