Upgraded range gets more features as standard including AEB on the base model, along with the introduction of Rear Door Alert to let you know if you've left your kids in the back.
Nissan Australia has announced an upgraded 2019 Pathfinder range this week, which sees enhanced equipment levels and a new variant.
Priced from $43,390 plus on-road costs, the entry-level Pathfinder ST is $1400 dearer than before, though it now gets autonomous emergency braking with forward collision warning, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and adaptive cruise control as standard equipment. A USB-C is also now included in the second row.
Bridging the gap between the ST and ST-L is the new ST+ (from $44,950), which bolsters the equipment list further with Nissan's 360-degree Around-View camera system with Moving Object Detection, along with in-built satellite navigation for the touchscreen infotainment system.
The mid-spec ST-L (from $54,890) also gets upgraded equipment levels for 2019, gaining adaptive LED headlights with auto-levelling, while the flagship Ti (from $62,890) now gets heated outboard rear seats and a new Rear Door Alert system.
Once the vehicle is turned off, a warning message in the driver's information display prompts the driver to check the rear seat.
If the driver walks away from the vehicle, or locks it, without opening the rear door the horn will sound and the driver's display will show the warning message again.
As before, the Pathfinder line-up is available with a 202kW/340Nm 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine, or a 2.5-litre supercharged petrol-electric hybrid system making 188kW and 330Nm.
The former claims fuel economy of 9.9L/100km, while the latter is rated at 8.6L/100km. Buyers of the V6 can opt for front- or all-wheel drive, while the hybrid solely drives all four wheels.
"Whether it’s technology, safety or the abundance of space, the Nissan Pathfinder has everything that active families require," said Stephen Lester, Nissan Australia's managing director.
"As we continue to listen to our customers, we are excited to bolster the Nissan Pathfinder’s strong list of standard Nissan Intelligent Mobility active safety technologies."
