Nissan’s Rear Door Alert System

It happens far too often, and when it does, it is news. A child left in a parked car in the sun. Sometimes the child is spotted and rescued in time, and sometimes not. When it is criminal negligence, you can punish the parent. Blissful ignorance can be mitigated by pointing out the facts. But what do you do when a distracted parent simply forgets?

Enter Elsa Foley, an engineer, and program manager at Nissan USA, and a mother of two. She and her colleagues proposed and devised a simple, yet effective, system to help prevent these tragedies.

New Look Nissan Pathfinder

The new look Nissan Pathfinder has not yet launched in South Africa…

Good news for all Nissan Pathfinder drivers, the 2013 version of this popular Sports Utility vehicle has just been awarded a 5-star safety rating from the Australasian New Car Assessment Programme or ANCAP for short.

The reason why this is good for South African drivers is that Australia, although on the other side of the Indian Ocean, has a fairly similar driving culture and of course terrain and weather. This means that the ANCAP tests are a good indication of how a vehicle will react in South African driving conditions.

Popular Mechanics revealed its “10 Favourite Cars of the Year” list, a list tht includes the popular Nissan Pathfinder

Renowned publication, Popular Mechanics, recently revealed its “10 Favourite Cars of the Year” in its first ever Auto Excellence Awards. Making it onto the list was the all-new Nissan Pathfinder, which took the title of Most Versatile Player.

According to the magazine the Pathfinder ticks all the requirement boxes of today’s drivers, who want a vehicle that will be able to “haul passengers like a minivan, tow like an SUV, and deliver fuel economy of a smaller passenger car.”

Besides its EZ Flex seating system and class-leading passenger volume that create space for up to 7 occupants, its towing capabilities and its best-in-class fuel economy figures, the new Pathfinder is also big on innovation. Exclusive features that owners can look forward to include must-haves like Bluetooth functionality and a rear-seat DVD entertainment system as well as advanced technologies like a 360-degree Around View Monitor and Nissan’s Easy Fill Tyre Alert System.

“The new Pathfinder carries on the tradition of the previous generations of adventure-ready Pathfinders that have come before – offering a new level of family enjoyment and engagement that is just right for today’s real-world, everyday uses,” said Vice President and General Manager of the Nissan brand in North America, Al Castignetti.

Pathfinder Concept unveiled at 2012 North American International Auto Show

Posted by on 10 Jan 2012 under Nissan Pathfinder

Nissan’s new Pathfinder Concept made its debut earlier this month at the Detroit Auto Show revealing its return to a more flexible unibody platform.

“With the upcoming, fourth-generation model, we’re about to re-invent the Nissan Pathfinder again. We’ve created a vehicle with an extraordinary balance of SUV capability, thoughtful technology and premium comfort to lead the segment once again – and help owners accomplish more in the real world, not just off-road,” said Al Castignetti, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division, Nissan North America, Inc.

When the Pathfinder first appeared in 1986, it revolutionised the SUV segment. Now, nearly 3 decades and 1.2 million sales later, it’s at it again. Boasting a new aerodynamic exterior, weighing substantially less than the previous design and utilising a refined V6 engine and next-generation CVT, it’s expected to show a 25% improvement in fuel economy. It will also feature an intuitive four-wheel drive system and competitive towing capacity.

More details on the new 3-row, 7-seater Pathfinder, are expected to be released in the near future, while it’s scheduled to go on sale in the fall of 2012 in the States.

The All New Nissan Pathfinder

A first look at the all new 2013 Nissan Pathfinder

A shadowy image of Nissan’s all-new Pathfinder Concept was recently released, acting as a teaser preview to its looming debut at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show.

Though it’s not a vivid image, it does reveal a unique sheet metal wave that serves to define the fenders as well as a traditional roofline with integrated cargo rails and five-spoke wheels. According to Nissan the seven-seater, 4WD Concept show car will combine all the traditional SUV characteristics of the Pathfinder with a new platform and new aerodynamic body, while retaining its off-road capabilities.

While the Concept will preview what the next generation production Nissan Pathfinder holds in store, the public can in the meantime look forward to the new production Pathfinder to go on sale towards the end of 2012.
