2018 Buick Enclave vs. 2018 Nissan Pathfinder Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Pathfinder than in the Buick Enclave, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Nissan Pathfinder will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Buick Enclave.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Buick Enclave as you will with the Nissan Pathfinder, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Buick Enclave will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Nissan Pathfinder, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Buick Enclave and the Nissan Pathfinder have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Buick Enclave is a little wider than the Nissan Pathfinder, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Buick Enclave, which is slightly longer than the Nissan Pathfinder.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Buick Enclave and the Nissan Pathfinder are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Buick Enclave has the same turning radius as the Nissan Pathfinder, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Nissan Pathfinder is clearly the choice over the Buick Enclave for pulling heavy loads. The Buick Enclave has a little more horsepower than the Nissan Pathfinder.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Buick Enclave and the Nissan Pathfinder. The Buick Enclave has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Nissan Pathfinder.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Buick Enclave than that of the Nissan Pathfinder.
