Nissan's midsized SUV uses a punchy, refined 3.5-liter V6 paired with a continuously variable transmission.
Power delivery is prompt and effortless, and we got 21 mpg overall.
The cabin is quiet and well-finished, and has an upscale feel to it.
The rear seat is roomy, and access is easy.
Rear and side visibility are hindered, however.
Handling is not very sporty, with overly light steering that reduces driver confidence.
The ride is steady and absorbent on the standard 18-inch tires but less so on the 20-inch tires found on the Platinum trim.
For 2021, Nissan's Safety Shield 360 becomes standard for all trim lines.
This package includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, forward collision warning, blind spot warning, rear cross traffic warning, lane departure warning, and rear automatic braking.
