2016 Nissan Pathfinder vs Honda Pilot

 
2016 Nissan Pathfinder vs 2016 Honda Pilot
The Pathfinder and Pilot share a few similar features including a similar sticker price and similar standard powertrains. The 2016 Pathfinder gains a huge leg up on the Pilot however with its' Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission rather than a standard six-speed transmission that the Pilot offers. We will explain why this difference fives the Patfhinder such an advantage in the section below.
Superior Transmission - Fuel Efficiency - Towing
As mentioned earlier the Nissan Pathfinder's exclusive Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission rewards its' drivers with a smoother drive quality, along with a modest edge in fuel economy and a 3,000-pound lead in standard towing capacity. The 2016 Pathfinder also boasts an exclusive another exclusive feature, the 4x4i switch, which lets you shift between 2WD (two-wheel-drive), 4WD (all-wheel-drive) and Auti drive modes easily. This benefits the driver as 2WD gets better gas mileage and 4WD is better for rougher roads, while the Auto Mode senses when conditions get worse or better and shifts between the two driving modes as needed.
 
Size Does Matter - Cool Safety Feature? Yeah We Said It
Besides the edge in versatility and driving options, the 2016 Nissan Pathfinder hasmore room for passengers on the inside, with 157.8 cubic feet, and head room for front row passengers, with 41.1 inches, that the 2016 Pilot (152.9 and 40.1). Those extra feet and inches in the 2016 Pathfinder will make it more likely your family and friends will be able to strectch our and be comfortable on long trips. The Pathfinder also offers an available class-exclusive safety feature, the Around View Monitor. Using four cameras, the AVM creates a composite image of the 2016 Pahfinder from above and displays it on the touch-screen monitor.
