If you are on the hunt for a space-efficient, capable Midsize family SUV that offers 3-Rows of seating you are likely looking at the 2017 Honda Pilot and the Nissan Pathfinder. Continue reading to discover how these two vehicles compare in pricing, safety, technology, comfort, and fuel-economy.
When it comes to U.S. News scores and ratings, the Pilot bests the Pathfinder in its Overall Rating, Critics' Rating, Performance, Interior, and Reliability. The closest the Pathfinder comes is a tie in safety where both vehicles earned a 9.3.
There are several trim levels to consider with both vehicles. The Pilot also comes very nicely equipped with the base model with features that include a V6 engine with push-button start, USB port, a multi-angle rearview camera, Bluetooth, and seven-speaker audio system.
The Honda Pilot is well regarded for its comfortable and roomy seats, making it the winner of comfort and layout. The Pilot gives its occupants a quiet and refined cabin with a dash composed of soft-touch materials. The third row of seats achieves a feat most SUVs do not attempt -- it was designed to fit adults. A vehicle noted for having some of the most comfortable front seats in the segment also has back row seats built for adults to ride in comfortably.
The Pilot delivers 16.5 cubic feet of cargo space in the back with all the seats occupied. The total space in the Pilot with the seats folded down is 83.9 cubic feet. When you have an SUV full of adults, gear, and luggage, you're going to appreciate the cavernous cargo room that the Pilot provides.
In the base engine, the four-cylinders deliver 19 miles-per-gallon in the city and 27 on the highway. Step up to the 3.5-liter V6 and have a start-stop system that achieves 19 miles-per-gallon in the city and 27 on the highway. A feat that is aided by being nearly three-hundred pounds lighter than the Pathfinder. Save money, fuel, and time at the pump, shop DCH Paramus Honda.
