Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Pathfinder than in the Lexus UX 250h, 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 Lexus UX 250h.

Convenience
With the Nissan Pathfinder, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Lexus UX 250h, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Lexus UX 250h 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. In this case, the Lexus UX 250h will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Nissan Pathfinder.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus UX 250h is much slimmer than the Nissan Pathfinder, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Lexus UX 250h, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Nissan Pathfinder.

Handling
The Lexus UX 250h has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Nissan Pathfinder, allowing you to much more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Utility
The Lexus UX 250h has less seating than the Nissan Pathfinder, making the Nissan Pathfinder the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Lexus UX 250h than that of the Nissan Pathfinder.
