The 2015 Nissan Pathfinder is a friendly-looking vehicle with a touch of toughness. Rounded edges and windswept curves say, “I’m great for families,” while the large, upward sloping grille and two large headlight housings remind that it can be fun, too. With just 6.5-inches of ground clearance, the Pathfinder looks sexy and lean, but isn’t meant for hardcore off-roading.

    Wow that is Fugly. Why do all these car companies put out all these station wagon looking “SUVs”. I personally much prefer the old look of SUV’s with a more boxy look rather than this crossover look.
