2014 Nissan Armada vs. 2015 Honda Pilot Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Armada than in the Honda Pilot. The Nissan Armada will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Pilot.

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 Nissan Armada will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Honda Pilot, 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. The Destination Charge for the Nissan Armada is much higher than that for the Honda Pilot.

Dimensions
The Nissan Armada is a little wider than the Honda Pilot, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Nissan Armada, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Honda Pilot.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Nissan Armada does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Honda Pilot.

Handling
The Nissan Armada has a larger turning radius than the Honda Pilot, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Nissan Armada is clearly the choice over the Honda Pilot for pulling heavy loads. The Nissan Armada has a little more horsepower than the Honda Pilot.

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

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