Compare Nissan Pathfinder vs Toyota Highlander

Discover How the Pathfinder Compares to its Inwood Competition

When you're shopping for an SUV, you can easily get bogged down by the sheer number of options available. Of course, you're not looking for just any SUV; you want one that delivers the dependability, performance, and versatility that make your Brooklyn drive easier, and that cuts down on the number of candidates pretty quickly.

The Nissan Pathfinder is a top candidate for our Elmont customers thanks to its ability to satisfy those requirements. How, though, does the Pathfinder compare to other highly-regarded SUVs? We thought it a good idea to put it in a head-to-head comparison with the Toyota Highlander, looking at introductory models of each SUV. Let's see how things shook out, shall we?

Nissan Pathfinder vs. Toyota Highlander


The two SUVs start with similar pricing, though the Nissan Pathfinder does come in at a slightly lower Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price. When you factor in the various costs of ownership, however, the Pathfinder quickly becomes the more affordable SUV. It delivers better highway fuel economy, and provides Nassau County drivers with one more year of no-charge roadside assistance coverage than the Highlander offers, so your savings continue to add up over the years.


The Pathfinder features a 3.5-liter V6 engine that generates 284 horsepower and 259 pound-feet of torque, clearly besting the Highlander's 2.7-liter inline-4 and its output of 185 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. When you combine that power advantage with the better fuel efficiency, it's clear that the Pathfinder is better-equipped to meet the needs of busy Valley Stream families.


Both base SUVs come loaded with features that Queens drivers are looking for, such as remote keyless entry, cargo tie-downs, third-row seating, voice-activated audio controls, Bluetooth® phone connectivity, and driver information centers. However, the Pathfinder comes with more standard features -- such as push-button start, driver lumbar support, dual-zone air conditioning -- that the Highlander doesn't even offer.

To us, it's evident that the Pathfinder delivers more of what today's busy families are looking for in an SUV. We invite you to visit our Inwood showroom at your convenience and take one out for an informative test drive.
