2016 Nissan Pathfinder vs. 2016 Honda Pilot vs. 2016 Toyota Highlander
The three-row SUV has had to face tough competition from smaller SUVs in recent years. But anyone who buys those compact models must not have had the chance to see some of the finest examples of the midsize SUV, which we'll showcase in this multi-vehicle comparison with the 2016 Nissan Pathfinder vs. the 2016 Honda Pilot vs. the 2016 Toyota Highlander. Can you feel the Earth shaking underneath your feet? You should be, considering the midsize SUV class roams off the pavement with ease, making it easier to tow a friend's car, find a remote campsite or just do donuts when no one else is looking.
The 2016 Nissan Pathfinder makes this easy, with an exclusive feature, the 4x4i switch, which lets you shift between 2WD (two-wheel-drive), 4WD (all-wheel-drive) and Auto drive modes easily. For example, 2WD gets better gas mileage and 4WD is better for rougher roads, while the Auto Mode senses when conditions get worse or better and shifts between the two driving modes as needed. While the 2016 Honda Pilot and the 2016 Toyota Highlander also have models available with either two-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive, they don't allow you to have both in the same vehicle. And with so many SUVs to choose from, versatility like what the 2016 Pathfinder offers is king.
Make Every Surface Your Pathway with the Nissan Pathfinder
To sweeten the pot, you have six different 2016 Nissan Pathfinder models to choose from, each with their own features and delights, while the 2016 Pilot only has five model options and the 2016 Highlander only comes in four. Besides this edge in versatility and options, the 2016 Nissan Pathfinder has more room for passengers on the inside, with 157.8 cubic feet, and head room for front row passengers, with 41.1 inches, than the 2016 Pilot (152.9 and 40.1) or the 2016 Highlander (145.9 and 40.7). Those extra feet and inches in the 2016 Pathfinder will make it more likely your family and friends will be able to stretch out and be comfortable on long trips. And as for you, the car shopper and driver, you'll save the most on the 2016 Pathfinder, as it carries the lowest MSRP and also gets the finest fuel economy with 20 mpg city and 27 mpg highway. Partial credit for this goes to the 4x4i switch.
Bottom line, if you want a powerful, versatile SUV that saves you money as you drive it off the lot and moving forward at the gas pump, as well as providing you with the ability to drive off road, stow up to 78.9 cubic feet (the equivalent of 590 gallons) of cargo or tow up to 5,000 pounds, then the 2016 Nissan Pathfinder is your ride.
