Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Pathfinder than in the Toyota Venza. 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 Venza.

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 Venza, 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). The Nissan Pathfinder is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Venza. 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 Venza.

Dimensions
Since the Nissan Pathfinder is much wider than the Toyota Venza, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Nissan Pathfinder, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Toyota Venza.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Nissan Pathfinder does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Toyota Venza.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Nissan Pathfinder greatly out-muscles the Toyota Venza.

Utility
The Nissan Pathfinder offers greater seating capacity than the Toyota Venza, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Nissan Pathfinder, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Toyota Venza.

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