The Pathfinder, part of Nissan's lineup for decades, is a three-row midsize SUV with seating up to 7. The Nissan Pathfinder has some real zest, surpassing typical horsepower for its class. Having better than average EPA (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and pollution. It handles mud, snow, and sand with ease with optional all-wheel drive (AWD). Nissan offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.

Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2022 Nissan Pathfinder has a score of 89, implying a 0.03% chance of driver death (2.6% chance of injury).

We estimate that the 2022 Nissan Pathfinder has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0296% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 3.3784%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0296% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 3.3784% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2022 Nissan Pathfinder is 37% less likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other suvs, the 2022 Nissan Pathfinder is 27% less likely to result in a fatal accident.

Active safety features with Nissan's Safety Shield 360 can substantially reduce the risks of harm to vehicle occupants by preventing severe accidents. All trims and versions of the 2022 Nissan Pathfinder include the following active safety systems: Automatic Emergency Braking w/ Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Warning, and Blind Spot Warning.

Some safety technologies get a lot of press, but another may also improve safety. Standard side mirror turn signals alert others of your intention to turn or switch lanes allowing them to react accordingly, which can prevent accidents caused by not seeing a vehicle in the blind spot.

But it is about as safe as many comparable models.
