We managed to sight this Nissan Pathfinder in the Gardens Mall parking lot earlier today. For those who don’t know what the Pathfinder is – it’s essentially a ladder frame chassis SUV based on the Nissan Navara, much like how the Pajero Sport and the Fortuner are derived from the Triton and the Hilux respectively.

This is most likely a grey car – we’ve seen the Pathfinder advertised by grey importers before for about RM130k. An official Edaran Tan Chong Motor (ETCM) imported Pathfinder with the same powerful engine you’ll find in the Navara would be a very interesting alternative to the Pajero Sport/Fortuner, but the volume of that segment might be too small to interest ETCM.

We haven’t seen a car in this class from ETCM since the Terrano.
