2015 Honda Pilot vs. 2015 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 Honda Pilot, 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 Honda Pilot.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda Pilot 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Honda Pilot will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Nissan Pathfinder. 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 Honda Pilot and the Nissan Pathfinder have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Honda Pilot 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. The Honda Pilot is slightly shorter than the Nissan Pathfinder, which may make it easier to park.

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

Handling
The Honda Pilot has a smaller turning radius than the Nissan Pathfinder, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the Nissan Pathfinder, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than with the Honda Pilot. The Honda Pilot has a little less horsepower than the Nissan Pathfinder.

Utility
The Honda Pilot offers greater seating capacity than the Nissan Pathfinder, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Honda Pilot has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Nissan Pathfinder.

Warranty
The Honda Pilot comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan Pathfinder.
