Next-generation Nissan Pathfinder crossover appears on testsSeptember 18, 2020
A camouflaged prototype of a new generation of Nissan Pathfinder mid-size crossover was spotted on tests. Among other things, the updated interior can be seen in the spy shots.
A new generation of the Japanese Nissan Pathfinder crossover is on its way. This series of spy shots is our first chance to see test prototypes of the highly anticipated new product. This time there are photos of the interior.
Compared to previous similar shots, the new Pathfinder’s false grille is slightly more visible. The outward-flaring vertical sections suggest that Nissan’s V-shaped grille is “stuck” around. The lower bumper can also be seen and has a simple horizontal design.
The big news is inside, where there is a chance to see a partially hidden salon. Designers have redesigned the interior from the current Pathfinder. The infotainment screen is much larger and there is a strip of buttons right below it to control it. This arrangement forces the vents to move below these elements. The camouflage hides the rest of the center console.
The console has a chunky gear lever. The electronic parking brake is also visible.
Unfortunately, the tilt angle of the photo does not allow a good enough view of the dashboard to determine whether it is using a digital display or not. However, spy shots of the next generation Rogue Sport (or Qashqai in Europe) show an infotainment screen that is almost identical to the one captured here.
Nissan confirms that the new Pathfinder is one of the brand’s new models to go on sale in the next 18 months. Current rumors suggest it will go on sale as a new 2021 model year. The debut may happen before the end of the year.
