Al Masaood Automobiles, the authorised distributor of Nissan in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and the Western Region, has announced that the bold and adaptable all-new Nissan Pathfinder 2022 is now available across its showrooms in the UAE capital. The announcement was made shortly after the official debut of the fifth-generation SUV model in the Middle East.
The 2022 iteration is inspired by the original model and the nameplate’s 35-year heritage. Building on the robust capabilities of its predecessors, the model has been completely redesigned from the ground up, with a host of mechanical and technological upgrades to cater to the growing needs of families in the region.
Its regional launch is seen to bolster Nissan’s SUV lineup and fills in the SUV-E segment, which will boost the brand’s popularity in Abu Dhabi.
Bachir Gemayel, Sales and Marketing Director, Al Masaood Automobiles, said: “The Nissan Pathfinder is a well-loved, iconic model in Abu Dhabi. Many customers, especially thrill seekers, are attracted to the effortless combination of style and performance of this family-friendly yet technologically advanced SUV range. The launch of the all-new Pathfinder, which remains loyal to the Pathfinder moniker whilst capturing the spirit of adventure, will further bring the experience of the owners to the next level. Its appeal stems from its fusion of the traditional with modern touches and its formidable suite of Nissan Intelligent Mobility features is designed to set it apart from other brand models on the road.”
Every inch of the all-new Nissan Pathfinder 2022 is carefully designed to convey a sense of strength and capability with a strong front face, wide stance, blister fenders and a shorter front overhang (versus the previous design). Offering customers, a luxury of choice, the all-new Pathfinder is available in three well-equipped grades – S, SV, and SL – with each providing greater comfort, luxury, and capability.
The all-new fifth-generation model also pays homage to the original 1987 Pathfinder with design elements, including bold wheel fenders, three-slot grille and a diagonal C-Pillar boasting a structural SUV design in line with its predecessors. Robust ‘U-shaped’ highlights fuse the powerful fenders, providing a tough, muscular appearance whilst the dual power outside mirrors with LED turn signal indicators provide a distinctive touch of elegance. In the rear, the wide-aspect LED taillights wrap around the sides and highlight the model’s modernity, whilst the available motion-activated power liftgate returns to the boldness of the first-generation Pathfinder, including the oversized, satin chrome insignia.
The distinctive design of the new Pathfinder is modern yet recognisable which, along with standard 18-inch or available 20-inch machined alloy wheels, gives it an authentic, robust SUV look. Characteristic Nissan DNA signature features are integrated into the new Pathfinder’s design, including a floating roofline and slim upper Daytime Running Lights.
The interior of the adventure-ready Pathfinder, on the other hand, features refined materials and a robust, open design. Driver and passengers are greeted with a modern, spacious environment that enhances comfort and versatility with heated and ventilated front seats, available eight-way power driver’s seat including four-way power lumbar support and available two-way power front passenger seat. Seating flexibility has been enhanced with standard eight-person capacity or, for the first time on the Pathfinder, premium second-row captain’s chairs for a seven-person capacity (available in the SL grade). The second-row bench seats now offer EZ FLEX® one-touch release fold/slide with push-button activation from both front and rear sides of the seats, making life easier for parents and backseat passengers alike.
Among the long list of striking features is a new, available 12.3-inch digital dashboard that provides drivers with a variety of easy-to-navigate screen options. NissanConnect® featuring Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ is offered as standard, complemented with available wireless Apple CarPlay® integration and available wireless smartphone charging pad. Complementing the digital dashboard is an available 12-speaker Bose® Premium Audio system with an optional 10.8-inch Head-up Display in the SL grade.
The introduction of the all-new model to the Middle East market strengthens the brand’s popular SUV line-up and enhances its suite of Nissan Intelligent Mobility offerings with revolutionary technologies, including ProPILOT and Nissan Safety Shield® 360.
