Performance: Nissan Pathfinder vs Honda Pilot
The 2019 Nissan Pathfinder comes with a 284-horsepower V6 that’s equally comfortable cruising and off-roading. It’s paired to the Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission that’s geared toward efficiency, though it’s capable of extracting all the power from the capable V6. The Pathfinder also has a smooth, even ride quality and exceptional body control.
The Honda Pilot is equipped with a 280-horsepower V6 that pairs to a 9-speed automatic or an available 9-speed automatic transmission. Though the Pilot offers a smooth ride as well, it doesn’t have the heightened fuel economy that CVTs provide. In fact, when comparing estimated efficiency while in the city, the Nissan comes out on top with 20 MPG while the Honda only offers 19 MPG.*

Comfort and Space
The 2019 Nissan Pathfinder offers three rows of seating, all of which can comfortably accommodate adults. The seats are heavily padded and offer excellent back support, along with plush material for a soft feel. With the rear seat folded down, there’s 47.4 cubic feet of cargo space, which expands to 79.5 cubic feet with both rows folded. Plus, with the Nissan LATCH AND GLIDE™ system, third row access is seamless. This includes tilt-down function and sliding ability, so there’s no trouble when making your way to the back.
The Honda Pilot also has three rows but features no advanced gliding system. In addition, although the interior volumes in both models are similar, the Pilot squeezes in one extra seating space in the rear. Extra space also shows itself in the front row of the Pathfinder. With 42.2 inches for your head and legs compared to 40.1 inches of headroom and a legroom of 40.9 in the Pilot, the Pathfinder proves to be roomier.

Pathfinder vs Pilot Style
The 2019 Nissan Pathfinder was recently redesigned, though it holds on to the practicality and timelessness. Mildly sculpted front and rear bumpers along with the raked windshield, bold character lines, and a flashy chrome grille create a pleasing effect that connects the Pathfinder to the rest of the Nissan lineup.
Within the cabin, the Pathfinder prioritizes functionality while adding stylish touches that keep it modern and impressive. This utilitarian design is enhanced with soft-touch materials, upscale accents, and a classic layout.
The Honda Pilot was also recently redesigned to include some higher-end materials. However, it still uses some plastics and more bulky elements compared to the sophisticated aesthetic in the Pathfinder cabin.
