Nissan Pathfinder Van (2010–2015)
New Nissan Pathfinder Van launched
The newly revised Pathfinder Van is part of Nissan's range of ‘Good To Go' conversions range. Available ‘off the shelf', it is fully type approved as a van for VAT and Road Fund Licence purposes. It's powered by a 2.5-litre dCi diesel engine with 190 PS (up from 171 PS in previous Pathfinder Van) and 450 Nm of torque. It has a top speed of 115 mph, takes 11.0 seconds to reach 62 mph from rest and returns a claimed 33.2mpg with CO2 of 224 g/km.
It will hold up to 2.17m3in its practical cargo bay and can now carry a useful 740 kg payload (previously 650 kg). What's more, access is particularly good, since the load bay can be reached either through the two rear doors, which open to an unusually wide angle of 73 degrees, or via the top hinged tailgate.
Two models of Pathfinder Van are available. The Obscured Glass Van, as its name suggests, has blacked out rear windows to deter prying eyes, with rear side windows deactivated to comply with Type Approval regulations. The second variant is the Panelled Van in which the side glass of the second two rows is replaced with aluminium outer and steel inner panels, the outer panels naturally colour coded with the rest of the vehicle. A roof mounted aerial replaces the window antenna in this model.
