Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Nissan Pathfinder offers good space for seven in a composed, quiet environment and it manages a some decent capability for off-road duty and towing.
The Nissan Pathfinder mid-size people mover gets a modest refresh for 2017 after its 2014 redesign.
Changes to this seven-passenger crossover SUV include new front and rear fascias that create a more truck-like look, engine improvements, a new infotainment system, and new active safety features.

Pros
Clever folding second row
Spacious interior
Composed, quiet ride
Calm cabin
Controlled handling

Cons
Far from a sports car
Drab interior materials
Occasional lag in power delivery

The Nissan Pathfinder receives substantial updates for 2017. These include a more powerful engine, greater towing capacity, a slight front and rear redesign, a larger standard touchscreen, additional feature content, and revised steering and suspension for a sharper driving experience.

Pros
V6 engine provides strong acceleration and respectable fuel economy
User-friendly touchscreen interface comes standard on every trim
Easily accessed third-row seat
Robust towing capacity.

Cons
Below-average cargo capacity and small item storage
Less third-row space than some rivals
Platinum trim level's ride quality might be too firm for some drivers
Automatic emergency braking safety feature available on top trim only.

The 2017 Nissan Pathfinder ranks 16 out of 18 Midsize SUVs. Despite a significant refresh for the 2017 model year, the Nissan Pathfinder ranks near the bottom of the midsize SUV class. While it can adequately do everything it was designed to do, it fails to impress in most areas.

Pros
Strong V6 engine
Intuitive infotainment system
Good overall cargo space

Cons
Rough ride quality
Lackluster interior design
Dull driving dynamics
Unimpressive passenger space

The 2019 Subaru Outback makes a sensible crossover SUV alternative.

Pros
Like a crossover SUV, but better
No shortage of safety gear
Spacious, refined interior
Rides and handles well
Better off-road than many SUVs

Cons
6-cylinder engine guzzles fuel…
… but 4-cylinder can feel pokey
Starting to show its age here and there
Touring needs roof rack cross bars

The 2019 Subaru Outback ranked #3 in Wagons. Currently the Subaru Outback has a score of 8.4 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 42 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Standard all-wheel drive
Roomy seats and great visibility
Class-leading amount of cargo space
Impressive set of standard tech and safety features

Cons
Acceleration is slow with the base engine
Throttle for base engine is overly sensitive at times

By:

The 2019 Subaru Outback is both wagon and SUV. It has the profile of a wagon, yet its traction-enhancing all-wheel-drive system and extra ground clearance make it more capable off-road than most other SUVs. Like other modern Subarus, it's also packed with the latest safety features.Subaru's EyeSight driver assist suite is now standard on all Outbacks.Base 2.5i trim gets additional USB ports.

PROS
Spacious and comfortable cabin
Roof and cargo-loading heights are lower than those of most SUVs
Excellent visibility in all directions
Off-road ability is above average

CONS
Acceleration is lackluster, especially with four-cylinder engine
Sensitive gas pedal at low speeds
Modest handling capabilities
