Tech – Nissan Dealership in Lumberton NC

The base 2022 Nissan Pathfinder features the NissanConnect infotainment system, an 8-inch color HD touchscreen, a rearview camera system and Apple and Android device integration. The base equipment in the 2022 Kia Sorento is essentially the same except for the Uvo infotainment software. Both automakers provide a standard suite of driver-assistance technologies. Nissan includes frontal collision warning, automatic emergency braking, automatic rear braking, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic detection and lane departure warning. Kia adds driver attention monitoring but lacks the blind-spot monitor and rear automatic braking. It does add this equipment with the up-level trim, but at that same point, Nissan adds adaptive cruise control and lane keeping assist. The Nissan model also has tech that you will not find on the Kia crossover. This includes a head-up display that provides important information directly on the windshield, which means that you never have to take your eyes off the road.
