Small overlap front: driver-side

Rating applies to 2022 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.
