Nissan's midsized SUV uses a punchy, refined 3.5-liter six-cylinder paired with a continuously variable transmission. The cabin is quiet and well-finished, and has an upscale feel to it. 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 Platinum trim's 20-inch. Optional safety features include blind-spot and cross-traffic warnings. An available 8-inch color display houses the NissanConnect infotainment system. For 2018, forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking is standard.
