NASHVILLE – The 2020 Nissan Pathfinder and Maxima have been named to Parents Magazine’s list of Best Family Cars for 2020. Winners are determined by crash test ratings, as well as evaluations from a Parents-certified child passenger safety technician plus an automotive expert. The results reflect the cars that are “safe for families and fun to ride in.” Pathfinder also was named to the list for 2019.
“Nissan is honored to have two of our flagship family vehicles recognized by a leading family resource like Parents and their community of more than 15 million moms and dads,” said Jared Haslem, vice president, Product Planning, Nissan North America.
Both Pathfinder and Maxima include Nissan’s innovative Rear Door Alert system1 as standard, along with a range of safety and security features, such as standard Automatic Emergency Braking. They are available now at Nissan dealers nationwide.
