Since 1985, the Nissan Pathfinder has been seen driving through American suburbs, down highways, and through off-road terrain. The popular crossover utility vehicle sits between Nissan’s Murano and Armada in terms of size, and is priced between the Nissan Xterra and Murano.

 

Currently in its fourth generation, the 2015 Nissan Pathfinder offers drivers more standard features than ever before, and for the first time offers an all-wheel-drive option on all four of its trim levels.

 

The Nissan Pathfinder is no stranger to earning awards, and the 2015 version is no exception to that fact. With great options, more standard features, and with AWD offered on every model, the Nissan Pathfinder is more versatile and affordable than ever before. While driver’s get a lot with the base model, the next level up, the SV, offers more features and perks for the price. The Honda Pilot is one of the Pathfinder’s toughest competitors, but for 2015 - Nissan’s CUV blows the Honda Pilot out of the water.

Why the 2015 Honda Pilot is No Competition for the 2015 Pathfinder

2015 Nissan Pathfinder - Family SUV

The Honda Pilot has long been in competition with the Nissan Pathfinder. Both vehicles exist in the same segment, and each offer different features that allow them to distinguish themselves from one another. For 2015, the Nissan Pathfinder is squashing the Honda Pilot in terms of value, amenities, and cost of ownership. Check out five reasons why the 2015 Pathfinder is superior to the 2015 Honda Pilot.

 

  • Efficiency - The 2015 Pathfinder boasts an impressive 27 miles per gallon on the highway. The Honda Pilot falls short with only 25 mpg highway, leaving less time on the road, and more time at the pump.
  • Value - Aside from saving at the pump, drivers will also save on initial purchase price with the Pathfinder. The 2015 Pathfinder starts at just $29,630, while the Pilot will cost a few hundred more with its starting MSRP of $29,870.
  • Interior Space - The 2015 Pathfinder allows more legroom than its competition, with 41.7 inches of second row rear legroom. Pilot passengers will feel cramped, unable to cross their legs, with the 38.5 inches of second row rear legroom in Honda’s CUV.
  • Towing Capabilities - The 2015 Honda Pilot offers a maximum standard towing capacity of 2,000 pounds. The Nissan Pathfinder more than doubles that number, offering a standard towing rating of 5,000 pounds.
  • Technology - The 2015 Pathfinder offers drivers an available around-view monitor system that utilizes four cameras to create an all-around view of your Pathfinder from above. The Pathfinder is the only vehicle to offer this technology, meaning that the Honda Pilot once again, simply cannot measure up.
