The 2016 Nissan Pathfinder and the 2016 Honda Pilot are two popular vehicles for families and commuters in Charleston, Mt. Pleasant, and Summerville. And when you take a close look at the two vehicles, it’s easy to see why. Power, affordability, and technology make a stand in each, making them both weighty competitors. To help you choose between the two, the team at Charleston Nissan has put them together in a head-to-head Nissan Pathfinder vs Honda Pilot comparison just for you. Check it out now then schedule a test drive of your favorite.
The 2016 Nissan Pathfinder and the 2016 Honda Pilot both offer a powerful 3.5-liter V6 engine and great EPA-estimated fuel economy at 20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway.
The vehicles both offer impeccable highway passing power and smooth-transitioning transmissions. A major point of difference between the two vehicles, however, is in their towing capabilities. While the Pathfinder can tow up to 5,000 pounds, the 2016 Honda Pilot has a max towing capability of only 3,500 pounds. This means you may need to reconsider your family vacation plans if you’re planning to tow any fun toys like four wheelers or jet skis.
The interiors of the Honda Pilot and the Nissan Pathfinder are both well-designed. But you’ll see quite a bit of difference between the interior dimensions as well as the versatility features they offer. The Honda Pilot offers 152.9 cubic feet of passenger space and approximately 84 cubic feet of cargo room. This is similar to that of the Nissan Pathfinder. However, the Pathfinder offers the EZ Flex Seating System with Latch and Glide that allows you to decide whether you’d like an additional 5.5 inches of legroom in the front or back of the vehicle. Unfortunately, the Honda Pilot doesn’t offer this kind of system.
In terms of safety, both vehicles have a reputation for high safety ratings. And both have received a 5-star Overall Crash Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Both vehicles offer ample safety features, such as Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Blind Spot Warning, to keep you and your family safe.
