Today, WardsAuto World named the all-new 2013 Nissan
Pathfinder to its annual “Ward’s 10 Best Interiors” list for 2013. The
recently-redesigned Pathfinder is recognized for its comfortable, yet
functional interior.

Vehicles are selected to the “Ward’s 10 Best Interiors” list after an
intensive evaluation of dozens of nominated vehicles, each judged in
areas such as materials, ergonomics, safety, the human-machine
interface, comfort, fit and finish, aesthetics and overall value.

“Nissan really did its homework in developing the all-new interior for the Pathfinder,” said WardsAuto World

Jon Brancheau, vice president, Marketing, Nissan North America said:
“The completely-redesigned Pathfinder is Nissan’s most innovative
Pathfinder ever. Combining the capability of an SUV with the comfort of a
sedan for the entire family, the 2013 Pathfinder offers a tremendous
amount of interior room and amenities to keep passengers of any age
comfortable. Nissan is honored to receive this prestigious award and
thanks WardsAuto World for the recognition.”

The all-new fourth-generation Nissan Pathfinder seats up to seven
passengers and boasts best-in-class passenger volume, best-in-class
front headroom and legroom and class-exclusive reclining third row
seats.* The Nissan EZ FlexTM Seating System allows the second row to
move forward or backward up to 5 1/2 inches for easy access to the back
row, even with a child seat installed. When carrying seven passengers,
the Pathfinder still accommodates up to 16 cubic feet of cargo.
This most recent honor adds to an already impressive list of awards for
Pathfinder this year. In February, MotorWeek announced the 2013 Nissan
Pathfinder as their winner in the “Best Large Utility” category at the
Chicago Auto Show. Additionally, Popular Mechanics named the Nissan Pathfinder “Most Versatile” in its 2013 Automotive Excellence Awards.
