If your family's lifestyle is calling for an upgrade to a new SUV, then why not explore the versatile 2018 Honda Pilot mid-size SUV? At DCH Paramus Honda, we dare to compare the 2018 Honda Pilot SUV to any of its competitors, including the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder. While both these mid-size SUVs offer three-row seating, there are plenty of key differences that may have you leaning toward one over the other. Read on to see how the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder stacks up against the 2018 Pilot SUV from Honda.
Whether you are planning weekend family road trips or you need the space to haul luggage to and from the airport, cargo capacity matters. With the 2018 Honda Pilot mid-size SUV, you can travel worry-free knowing that it offers impressive cargo-hauling abilities. When all three rows of the Pilot are in use as seating, this mid-size SUV boasts an impressive 16.5 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the third row of seats. At its maximum, or when the second- and third-row seats are folded down, the 2018 Pilot affords up to 83.9 cubic feet for hauling cargo. In the latest Pathfinder, cargo space tops out at 79.5 cubic feet, meaning you won't be able to haul quite as much if you opt for the Nissan. With the 2018 Pilot claiming the crown for cargo capacity, let's turn our attention to passenger volume and the seating environment in these two mid-size SUVs.
Not only does the 2018 Pilot LX base model haul more cargo, it can also transport more passengers than the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder. The 2018 Pilot comes standard-equipped with 8-passenger seating, while the 2018 Pathfinder offers just 7-passenger seating. With 152.9 cubic feet of passenger volume compared to just 137.8 cubic feet in the Pathfinder, it is understandable how Honda was able to comfortably fit one additional seat in the more spacious and airy 2018 Pilot. Maximize the comfort of each of your passengers and choose the 2018 Pilot over Nissan's Pathfinder!
