    I remember well my first time in a Y My dad worked for Nissan at the time, and brought home one of the very first examples — a 4. The year was , and it felt like the peak of prestige to a country kid. But markets shift, rivals learn and buyers migrate. And the continued presence of the now ancient Y61 in showrooms tell us that, while a lot can change in 19 years, Nissan in this case has elected not to.

    The Land Rover Defender only died last month. And given what the Patrol is — a rugged, tough-as-nails 4x4 — making changes for their own sake seems counter-intuitive. This is, of course, the fact that the Y62 Patrol is available only with a thirsty petrol V8 in a diesel-dominated segment, a result of the fact that most of its demand is from the Middle East and America, where diesel is a non-entity.

    Something the Patrol, even in top-spec ST guise, certainly is. Just look at it. At this juncture it would be fair to call it iconic, albeit not to the same degree as the GQ predecessor. Ditto for the cabin, which is austere in the extreme.

    Creature comforts extend to an old-school head unit with a six-stacker CD player! The way the cabin is built, as if hewn from granite, is more in the right wheelhouse. The old-school plastics feel tough-as-nails, the spring-loaded cubby atop the fascia is a work of crude art, the fit-and-finish throughout is beyond excellent and the seats are trimmed in that peculiarly 90s soft cloth. As colleague Curt put it: Those huge, boxy side windows also make the Patrol easier to see out of, for all three rows of passengers, than anything this side of a Land Rover Discovery.

    Less charming is the oversized steering wheel that sits too low, and lacks telescopic adjustment. As with most rivals, the Patrol is a seven-seater, and many are the times as a kid I sat in the third row on some long getaway. The middle row has ample shoulder room and headroom, though the middle lap-only belt is unforgivable today, as are the complete lack of rear airbags. This is no longer a viable family choice.

    The third row seats are of the old-school variety, in that they flip upwards and hook into place against the side windows when not in use like the modern Toyota Fortuner, unlike the Ford Everest and Isuzu MU-X. This compromises cargo space, and boy are they heavy things to move about. Access to the rear is via barn doors, designed to allow the full-size spare alloy wheel to sit on the tailgate.

    Truth is, room in the third row when the seats are in use is adequate, but no better than any of the new crop of ute-based SUVs such as those mentioned in the paragraph above. Under the bonnet of the beast is a 3. Four cylinders in something so big? Of course, such technology is now almost de rigeur. The engine is gruff by modern standards, and lacks in both the bottom end tractability and the mid-range compared to modern units.

    The meagre braked towing capacity of kg as tested we had the four-speed automatic transmission version — the five-speed manual can tow kg reflects this. Once underway, the Patrol did fine on our tow test, but the lack of bottom end is always evident, notably when tackling hills. On that note, the claimed combined-cycle figure of At least it has a vast capacity of litres between its main and sub tanks for long hauls.

    But forget all this, you say. All bar its fairly modest mm of clearance until you stick some bigger springs on it speak volumes. And indeed, few cars are as proven in the rough stuff as the Patrol, even if it will weigh 3. Driving the Patrol off-road reminds you how it was done is the olden days, when you had to actually know your stuff.
