Just wondering what the differences are between the 2-Performance wise and spec wise or are they very similar?

I was told the pathy is the discoveries closest rival so it must be pretty well specced :scratch:

I'm new to this, but as I understand it; the Pathy will handle better due to independant rear coil suspension, but is heavier/slower/has worse fuel consumption.

The Pathfinder is about the same as your Nav's very little in it but compairing it to a Disco, slower not a bit of it and the handling I think is far better even if the EPS only come into play when it thinks you need it, but alas the downside is as you say the fuel consumption is crap but then I thought it was my lead foot. My sons Navara Aventura is a lot more skittish on the wet than my Pathfinder having driven both he agrees with me, and going off road he seems to slip about more than I do. He say with a couple of bags of sand in the back his handling come near to mine which he has started to carry as he visit building site on a daily basis. He saw the light this year and sold his Disco and bought a Nav. only way he say the Disco is better in his opinion is towing his caravan, he didn't need the extra rear end weight.

They are yes, wont get a tint that dark here though unless its the light in the pic, my mates pathy is no where near that dark. Also i believe the nav can be speccedd as high as any pathy out there, there is a pic of someones nav on here that has the drop down monitors from the roof in the rear :afro:

But if your self employed a nav is the only way to go :)
