Scheduled to be presented at the 2010 Geneva Auto Show next month, the new versions of Nissan Pathfinder and Navara have surfaced on the web today, showing little exterior changes but bringing, according to the little information available, several changes to the mechanics.
According to Autoblog.it, the biggest news comes in the form of the 3.0l V6 dCi engine, developing 238 hp and 55 Nm of torque. The engine, a joint effort of Nissan and Renault, will also be used on the Infiniti EX and FX models in the near future.
Otherwise, Nissan will offer for the two models the existing 2.5l dCi engine (190 hp and 450 Nm of torque), tweaked into being more fuel effective
and now providing a fuel consumption rate of 8.4l/100 km.
Other changes to the two models include the addition of new color choices at the exterior, with the front end featuring restyled grille and redesigned headlights. On the interior, the comfort has been enhanced, while the standard equipment has been refined.
As said, the two models will be presented in Geneva, together with the new Micra, the Juke small crossover, the Leaf, the facelifted Qashqai and the 370Z Roadster.
