Best Value For A Do Everything Vehicle W/ Gt Mpg. — At first I thought this was a great car, that's why I bought it. Now that I have owned it for 2 years it has exceeded my expectations in every category. I liked it so much that I bought my wife a 2015. Totally awesome in the snow and every day driving. The only reason I am selling it is to get a new 2015 Morano that is a sportier version of the same vehicle but doesn't have 7 passenger seating or 5000 lb towing.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looks great, surround camera is awesome, comfort (even on long trips), rides like a luxury car yet handles sporty, lots of technology, towing ability and great acceleration. This is a great car for a large family or even just a daily commuter yet it gets great fuel milage.

Cons: Learning all the tech stuff and getting used to the voice recognition. After you get past those things the only con I can think of is keeping it clean!

2013 Nissan Pathfinder Platinum Review
says:
The Pathfinder we have has been driven coast to coast and all over Canada and all over the desert and mountains. It can be driven 12 hours straight and I feel like I could gas up and go longer. Very very comfortable, quiet, good gas mileage even loaded to the hilt. Smooth ride like a big limo in our opinion.

Power Ranked 2019 Audi Q5 2.0T quattro Premium Plus AWD worse.
"The Pathfinder is a normally aspirated V6 and the Audi has a turbo 4 cylinder. For long term use the cubic inches will always be king. There is no lag on acceleration for the Pathfinder but the Audi has some lag on flooring it to pass."
Looks/Style Ranked 2019 Audi Q5 2.0T quattro Premium Plus AWD worse.
"After 6 years the Pathfinder still looks smashing and the Audi is always chasing a new look."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2019 Audi Q5 2.0T quattro Premium Plus AWD worse.
"With the back seat down on Audi Q5 there is 53 cu.ft. space and with back 2 rows of seats down on Pathfinder there is 79.5 cubic feet of space. The difference is huge. Also the back two sets of seats fold flat so there is one large flat area the the Audi Q5 on is partly flat as the seat back goes up hill enough to not let dogs be comfortable."
Family Car Ranked 2019 Audi Q5 2.0T quattro Premium Plus AWD worse.
"More and larger cupholders, many more usb outlets, 3 rows of seats, more comfortable seats at all positions, setbacks recline considerably more, regular gas and better gas mileage & better smoother ride quality."
