In a segment where of the competitors are on the butch side, the down to earth ruggedness then all look a bit effeminate. The 171 bhp rail turbodiesel is a bit noisy accelerating and the six-speed gearbox on the heavy side.

Once you get to cruising speed on the the Pathfinder feels firm and although there was some noise and plenty of rattles and In town it is less than and feels bouncy and a bit ungainly on

I didn’t get to drive the beast but the way it demolishes sleeping policeman as if weren’t there suggests it be the business. You can select two-wheel for regular driving and go into mode in the mud. Or you can, I did, just select and let computer decide when to on the high-tech stuff.
