2014 Ford Flex vs. 2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Flex than in the Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid. The Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Ford Flex.

Convenience
With the Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Ford Flex, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Flex will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid. 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 Ford Flex and the Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Ford Flex is a little narrower than the Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Ford Flex, which is slightly longer than the Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Ford Flex transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid.

Handling
The Ford Flex has a larger turning radius than the Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

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

Warranty
The Ford Flex comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid.
