I saw one yesterday - don't look too bad; fully independant suspension; 3 row seats; Diesel (well done Nissan) & available in auto aswell. Didn't like the rear seat though - not much cushion for your back & why do all wagons have fold down arm rests in the middle - seems stupid to me as the centre passenger in the rear gets one hell of a uncomfortable trip - the Prado & all the other makes have the same problem. The Ford Territory if you ask me has the best seats for comfort but it is not a 4WD. Quality of finish on the inside of the Pathfinder is questionable - have a look at the centre storage bin between the seats - looks flimsy - the clip would not last long if you ask me. I might be bias as I'm a Toyota fan - but they cost heaps more. Anyway cannot wait for the tests.

Had a good look and drive of the 6 speed manual diesel. i reckon they are on a winner. Performance is best in class - feels very solid and goes well. Don't reckon you should even use the word Territury and Pathfinder in same sentance - they are not even close. Look out Prado owners!! Just can't yet work out why they are so close to Patrol in all areas though, maybe time will tewll they aren't as they start to break!

The only thing I liked in the Territory apart from the storage area was the seats - very comfortable.

You sure about that Bruce, just looking at the website:

Take your pick from the 198kW 4.0 V6 petrol or 128kW common rail turbo diesel engines. Both deliver exceptional power and torque and can easily tow up to 3,000kg

Nice styling, looks real good, much better than the ugly Prado.

In Europe new Navarra is also available and it looks exactly like new Pathfinder up to begging of the second doors. I think it looks good. From what I remember the tray in all versions is slightly longer than before.

Have a look here
