Small overlap front: driver-side

Rating applies to 2022-23 models

Tested vehicle: 2022 Nissan Pathfinder S 4-door 4wd

The Nissan Pathfinder and Infiniti QX60 were redesigned for the 2022 model year after a one year absence from the market. Driver-side small overlap frontal ratings are assigned by the Institute based on a test of a 2022 Pathfinder conducted by Nissan as part of frontal crash test verification.

Low beams
On the straightaway, visibility was good on both sides of the road. On curves, visibility was good on the sharp left and both right curves and inadequate on the gradual left curve.

The low beams created some glare.

High beams
On the straightaway, visibility was good on the right side of the road and fair on the left side. On curves, visibility was good in all 4 tests.

High-beam assist compensates for some limitations of this vehicle's low beams on the straightaway and on both left curves.
