Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Nissan Pathfinder has value and interior flexibility as its assets, but this crossover SUV is ripe for a redesign.

Pros
Comfortable interior
Active safety tech standard
Strong V-6 engine
Good value
Calm ride

Cons
Outdated infotainment
Subpar outward vision
Land yacht handling
Light on refinement

Rear parking sensors and USB-C ports now standard on specific trim levels.Additional driver aids now standard on all but base trim level.The 2019 Nissan Pathfinder now offers USB-C ports for front and rear passengers, and features once reserved for the top trim levels trickle down through the range.

PROS
V6 engine delivers strong acceleration with decent fuel economy
Third-row seating is easy to access
Offers robust towing capacity
Automatic emergency braking and rear parking sensors are standard on every trim level

CONS
Cargo capacity and small-item storage are below average
Offers less roomy third-row space than some rivals
The top trim's ride quality may be too firm for some drivers

The 2019 Nissan Pathfinder ranked #18 in Midsize SUVs. Currently the Nissan Pathfinder has a score of 7.7 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 55 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Easy-to-use infotainment system
Strong engine

Cons
Stiff ride
Dull cabin materials
Uncomfortable rear seats
Small cargo hold

Hyundai is on a good track. For starters, the new ute looks more grown-up and handsome. The rear glass is more vertical, a boon to headroom for the sort-of-optional third-row seats (more on that later) and cargo space. With shorter overhangs, a longer wheelbase, greater length, and slightly more girth than the ’18 Santa Fe Sport, interior space is up, too. Hyundai increased visibility by employing what it claims is 41 percent more glass area than in the outgoing Santa Fe Sport to nurture the target markets of empty nesters and families moving up from a sedan.

Pros
Sharp looks,
bigger inside and out than the Sport it replaces,
packed with features.

Cons
Some low-rent plastics inside;
small fuel-economy bump;
so which one is this, again?
