2017 Nissan Pathfinder vs. 2016 Toyota Highlander Comparison in Concord, NC

  • Since we're comparing base level editions, it's important to note the standard V-6 in the Pathfinder both outperforms and is more efficient than the four-cylinder setup in the Highlander. Opting for a V-6 in the Toyota means bumping up to a far costlier trim level.
  • The passenger space and total interior volume is far greater in the Pathfinder compared to the Highlander.
  • Properly equipped, your Pathfinder can tow up to 6,000 pounds, compared to a max of 1,500 pounds for the Highlander.

2017 Nissan Pathfinder vs. 2017 Kia Sorento Comparison in Concord, NC

  • The base level of the Pathfinder comes available with four-wheel drive, while adding AWD in the Sorento means you have to bump up to a higher trim level.
  • Similarly, you'll need to go up to a costlier edition to add a V-6 in the Sorento, while that more powerful engine is standard in all editions of the Pathfinder. Even when comparing the V-6 Nissan SUV to the four-cylinder Kia, the Pathfinder earns close to the same efficiency ratings.
  • The Pathfinder offers seating for seven, as well as adjustable third-row seats for added cargo storage if you need it, while the Sorento is only set up for five passengers.
  • When properly equipped, the Pathfinder can tow up to 6,000 pounds, compared to a 2,000-pound rating for the Sorento.

  • The Pathfinder is available in four trim levels, and with several option packages, while the Santa Fe is only offered with two trims, limiting your customization options.

  • The Pathfinder provides a considerably more spacious interior setup when compared to the Santa Fe, particularly when it comes to the three rows of seating, which is also quickly and easily adjustable to create more cargo storage area.
