Nissan redesigned the Pathfinder for 2013 to soften its brawny sport utility (SUV) edges and appeal to the creature comforts of the dominating crossover (CUV) class.

Nissan continues on that family-minded path with the 2014 Pathfinder Hybrid, which maximizes fuel economy while maintaining a spacious 7-seat interior.

The 2013 redesign shed 500 pounds, improved aerodynamics, and dropped down to a 3.5-liter V6 from a 4.0-liter V6 in the previous generation. The results were one of the most fuel-efficient seven-passenger SUVs on the market, getting 19 mpg city/ 25 highway/ 21 combined for the all-wheel drive.
