The 2010 Nissan Pathfinder is pleasantly styled, inside and out, but somewhat plain. However, that should keep the Pathfinder looking less out of style a few years from now.

Expert Quotes:

progressive design that is both stylish and rugged

The 2010 Nissan Pathfinder offers rugged styling that's certainly not groundbreaking in any way, but most shoppers will find the look reasonably handsome inside and out.

Even though the Pathfinder hasn't seen a complete redesign in many years, its exterior is quite timeless and straightforward. Kelley Blue Book says that the Nissan Pathfinder boasts a "rugged, purposeful exterior befitting the vehicle's lineage and ability," and mentions that the "front end mimics other Nissan models such as the Armada and Frontier, tying in a familial theme." Edmunds says there aren't a lot of appearance differences between the S, SE, SE Off-Road, and LE trims except from a few functional details that might shine through, such as the "exclusive off-road shocks and tires" and "skid plates" on the SE Off-Road. Edmunds also notes that "its body is far larger than past models."

Cars.com focuses on one design detail: the rear door handles. It's disappointed to find that the handles are "mounted vertically and higher than the front door handles—hasn't changed," as those handles are placed such that "kids can't reach them."

The interior of the 2010 Pathfinder is certainly not overly stylish, but again, functionality rules. Cars.com says it "isn't the prettiest around," while ConsumerGuide praises the Nissan Pathfinder for its "well-placed gauges with user-friendly controls."

Conclusion

The 2010 Nissan Pathfinder is pleasantly styled, inside and out, but somewhat plain. However, that should keep the Pathfinder looking less out of style a few years from now.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
