2017 Nissan Pathfinder vs 2017 Honda Pilot near Aurora, IL

2017 Nissan Pathfinder vs 2017 Honda Pilot near Aurora, IL

Vehicle shown above is the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder Platinum in Cayenne Red.

When you’re in the market for a midsize SUV, you want one that meets your every need. To help you out with your research for the ideal ride, we at Thomas Nissan of Joliet put together a comparison between the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder and the 2017 Honda Pilot—which one prevails and which one succumbs?

Accommodations are crucial in an SUV, and you’ll certainly find no shortage in the Pathfinder. In this vehicle, there are various integrations that overrule what is offered in the Pilot. For instance, the Nissan Pathfinder comes standard with Tri-Zone Automatic Temperature Control, a system that lets you create three different climates in the cabin. While the Honda Pilot offers this as well, it only does so in top trims; it just comes standard with an air conditioning system. Thanks to the eight standard cargo tie-downs in the 2017 Pathfinder, you’ll be able to easily and safely pack in your various items. The 2017 Pilot can’t quite offer the same security as the Pathfinder, as it equips just four tie-downs in its trunk area.

The Nissan Pathfinder effortlessly maintains its lead against the Pilot when it comes to technology. While both models come standard with two 12-volt outlets, the Pathfinder offers a maximum of four, on top of a 120-volt outlet. The Honda Pilot features just a maximum of three 12-volt outlets and a 115-volt outlet. Furthermore, the 2017 Pathfinder integrates a standard 8-inch touchscreen in its center stack, which houses an assortment of functions via NissanConnectSM1, such as SiriusXM® Travel Link®2. Unfortunately, the Pilot comes standard with just a 5-inch touchscreen; an 8-inch display and like amenities aren’t available until you reach higher trims.

Interior of the Nissan Pathfinder

In the last section of our comparison, we’ll take a look at how these two models stack up in terms of exterior capabilities. On every trim of the Pathfinder, you’ll have access to roof rails3 that let you carry larger or more of your items; the Honda Pilot only offers these in top models. Not only that, but the Nissan Pathfinder also comes standard with LED turn signal indicators embedded in the side mirrors, providing your fellow drivers with an additional alert of your next move. Once again, the Pilot only equips this function in higher trim levels. And, as the cherry on top, the 2017 Pathfinder yields a feisty 284 horsepower from its 3.5L V6 engine, while the Pilot renders a less-powerful 280 horsepower via its 3.5L V6 powertrain.

It’s clear to see the many ways in which the Pathfinder reigns supreme against the Pilot in this battle between the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder vs 2017 Honda Pilot near Aurora, IL. Experience the winning Pathfinder for all that it’s worth here at your local Nissan dealer, Thomas Nissan of Joliet, when you take it for a test drive!
