The first addition is EZ Flex Seating System, gives the Pathfinder an amazing 1.3 different seating configurations. We love to see Nissan demonstrate all 1.3 as we are certain the majority are completely Regardless of our skepticism, that is an feat.

The 2013 Pathfinder can up to seven passengers with all of the up and each one packed tightly, but if hauling is more of your the Pathfinder also hauls up to cubic-feet of cargo with the seats folded.
