2016 Nissan Pathfinder vs. 2016 Toyota 4Runner Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Pathfinder than in the Toyota 4Runner. The Nissan Pathfinder will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota 4Runner.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Nissan Pathfinder as you will with the Toyota 4Runner, 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 Nissan Pathfinder will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota 4Runner. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Nissan Pathfinder will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Toyota 4Runner.

Dimensions
The Nissan Pathfinder is a little wider than the Toyota 4Runner, 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 Nissan Pathfinder, which is slightly longer than the Toyota 4Runner.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Nissan Pathfinder doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota 4Runner.

Handling
The Nissan Pathfinder has a larger turning radius than the Toyota 4Runner, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Nissan Pathfinder will do just as well as the Toyota 4Runner, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Nissan Pathfinder has a little less horsepower than the Toyota 4Runner.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Nissan Pathfinder and the Toyota 4Runner. The Nissan Pathfinder has less cargo space than the Toyota 4Runner, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Nissan Pathfinder comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota 4Runner.
