2016 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).

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.

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 the same turning radius as the Nissan Pathfinder, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Honda Pilot will do just as well as the Nissan Pathfinder, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Honda Pilot has a little more horsepower than the Nissan Pathfinder.
