What are the notable features of the 2020 Nissan Pathfinder?
As previously mentioned, the Nissan Pathfinder has four trim levels, which allow for a ton of features. The base S trim has a comprehensive set of features and some exciting surprises. Standard features for the S include roof rails, three-zone climate control, and a sliding and reclining second-row seat. Tech features for the S include Bluetooth and an 8-inch touchscreen with a six-speaker sound system, CD/HD radio and satellite radio, and dual USB ports for both front and rear passengers. On the safety front, the S includes automatic emergancy breaking, and reverse parking sensors come standard. The SV adds to this list with a few more driver assistance features such as blind-spot monitoring and adaptive cruise control. Other features include a power-adjustable driver’s seat and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The next level up is the SL, which comes more premium features such as hands-free liftgate, heated front and rear seats, and a navigation system. The top trim level is the Platinum, and it adds more luxury features such as a panoramic sunroof, ventilated front seats, a power-adjustable steering wheel, and a Bose audio system.
What are some of the safety features?
In addition to the driver’s aids that are available on different trim levels, each Pathfinder also comes with Nissan’s Advanced Air Bag System, which includes dual-stage supplemental front airbags with seatbelt sensors. Also included is an anti-lock braking system that pumps the breaks faster than you can in emergancy situations, which helps you prevent wheel lockup and allows you to steer without breaking heavily. If for some reason, you need to slam on your breaks, a Brake Assist System detects how hard your breaking and if it senses that you are in trouble helps to apply the maximum amount of brake force. The Electronic Brake Force Distribution System helps send extra power to the rear breaks when the Pathfinder detects excess weight in the back.
