The exterior styling of the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder has been previewed just days out from the unveiling of the Pathfinder concept vehicle at next week’s North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
Two teaser images reveal the front and rear styling of the Nissan Pathfinder concept. The Detroit show car is expected to give an accurate impression of the production model, which is set to go on sale overseas later this year before hitting Australian showrooms in 2013.
The Pathfinder’s new face is simpler, more elegant and decidedly more upmarket. The pointed headlights and trapezoidal grille are somewhat reminiscent of the Lexus RX luxury SUV.
The boxy rear-end of the current model makes way for a rounder rump, with a less prominent bumper and more car-like taillights, replacing the old vertical fixtures.
The fresh front and rear designs work well with the Pathfinder’s new flowing side profile that was teased late last year.
Stay tuned for the full details of the Nissan Pathfinder concept from the Detroit motor show early next week.
