Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Pathfinder than in the Toyota Venza, 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 Toyota Venza.

Convenience

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 Toyota Venza 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. The Toyota Venza will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Nissan Pathfinder.

Dimensions
Since the Toyota Venza 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 Toyota Venza, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Nissan Pathfinder.
