Next-Gen Nissan Pathfinder Spied Showing Overhauled Interior
A new generation of Nissan Pathfinder is on the way. This bundle of spy photos is our first chance to see its development in months. Engineers are stripping away a bit of camouflage, and there are photos of the interior this time.
Compared to the previous images, the grille of this Pathfinder is a bit more visible. The outwardly flared vertical parts suggest that Nissan’s V-shaped grille is sticking. The lower fascia is also exposed and features a simple, horizontal design. At the rear, the taillights are a bit more noticeable, but for the most part, engineers continue to keep the vehicle well hidden.
The big news is inside where there is a chance to see the cabin partially covered. The designers are redesigning the design from the current Pathfinder. The infotainment screen is much larger and there is a strip of buttons to control it just below. This arrangement forces the movement of the air vents under these elements. The fabric hides the rest of the center stack.
On the console, there is a large wired gear selector. An electronic parking brake is also visible.
Unfortunately, the angle of the photo does not allow enough viewing of the gauge cluster to determine whether it is using an analog or digital display. However, spy photos of the next-gen Rogue Sport (or Qashqai in Europe) show an infotainment screen almost identical to what’s seen here, and this model has digital instruments.
Nissan confirms the new Pathfinder is one of the brand’s new models on the way in the next 18 months. Current speculation suggests that it would go on sale for the 2021 model year. The unveiling could take place before the end of the year.
