The Pathfinder is a mid size crossover, which is in production for three decades. It was originally launched in 1985 and so far we have seen four generations of this excellent crossover. It is considered as one of the most popular and definitely one of the most important models for this Japanese company. If you take all these facts in case, it is no wonder that company always makes some modifications, so there are plenty of novelties every year. Current generation was launched in 2012 and the biggest update was in 2014, when we saw a hybrid variant. For the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder prepares several updates too.
