Pilot vs. Pathfinder: Passenger and Cargo Space

Growing families love 3-row crossover SUVs for their accommodating interiors, so the Pilot’s ability to take up to 8 is going to impress over the Pathfinder’s maximum 7-seater capacity. Worse yet, the Pathfinder isn’t even able to make up for that by providing added cargo space.

  • 2021 Honda Pilot Cargo Space: Up to 18.5 cubic feet behind the 3rd row or 109 cubic feet behind the 1st row.
  • 2020 Nissan Pathfinder Cargo Space: Up to 16.2 cubic feet behind the 3rd row or 79.5 cubic feet behind the 1st row.

Pilot vs. Pathfinder: Features

The Pilot’s interior can provide more features as well as more space, including several that aren’t offered with any configuration of the new Nissan Pathfinder. Highlights include:

  • CabinTalk® In-Car PA System
  • Power Tailgate with Available Hands-Free Access
  • Apple CarPlay
  • Android Auto

Whether you want state of the art smartphone integration or family-friendly convenience, the Pilot has your back better than the Pathfinder.

Pilot vs. Pathfinder: Safety Technology

You can tell safety is a top priority of the Honda Pilot when you turn to its list of cutting-edge driver assistance features. Even the following advanced technologies come fitted as standard with all models:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Lane Keeping Assist System 
  • Road Departure Mitigation System 

The 2020 Nissan Pathfinder either doesn’t offer those features or won’t fit them as standard.
