2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid vs. 2015 Chevrolet Traverse Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid as you will with the Chevrolet Traverse, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost

Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Chevrolet Traverse.
