2017 Nissan Pathfinder Earns 5-Star Safety Rating From Federal Government


WASHINGTON — The refreshed 2017 Nissan Pathfinder midsize SUV earned the highest five-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

On sale at Nissan dealerships in September, the 2017 Pathfinder received four stars in the front crash test, five stars in the side crash test and four stars in the rollover crash test.

The rating applies to front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive versions of the Pathfinder.

Standard safety equipment on the 2017 Pathfinder includes antilock brakes, electronic stability control and traction control.

Three new advanced safety technologies on the 2017 Pathfinder include forward emergency braking, intelligent cruise control and an Around View Monitor with moving object detection.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has not rated the 2017 Pathfinder.

Key Pathfinder competitors include the Chevrolet Traverse, Ford Explorer, Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander.

Edmunds says: Car shoppers keeping score should note that the 2017 Chevrolet Traverse, Ford Explorer and Toyota Highlander also earned the highest five-star safety rating from NHTSA.
