The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.4
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Nissan Pathfinder is a workhorse SUV that also offers decent comfort and an impressive feature set. The 2011 Toyota FJ Cruiser stands above most SUVs—even off-road-capable ones—in both style and trail toughness; but city slickers should look elsewhere.
