The tested model of Nissan Pathfinder was introduced in Australia during 2005. Vehicles tested after 1 January 2008 require Electronic Stability Control in order achieve a 5 star rating. This vehicle was tested prior to this date and may or may not meet this new requirement.
The left-hand-drive European model was tested by Euro NCAP. Australasian specifications may vary and therefore models sold in Australasia might provide different levels of protection to those described on this page.
Dual front airbags are standard on all variants. Side airbags and head-protecting side curtains (as fitted to the tested vehicle) are standard equipment on the Ti variant but are not available on other variants in Australia. ABS/EBD brakes are standard on all variants. Electronic stability control is standard on ST-L and Ti variants. Advanced seat belt reminders are fitted to both front seats. The front seat belt buckles are mounted on the seats and the upper anchorages are adjustable. These features improve the fit of the seat belt. Pre-tensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. A three point seat belt is fitted to the centre rear seat. This provides better protection than a two point seat belt.
