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


  • Adding 4WD to the Pathfinder is a relatively affordable option, while the 4WD setup in the Highlander is only available at higher trim levels.
  • Similarly, the Pathfinder is equipped with a standard V-6, while that powerful engine option is again only offered at a higher - and costlier - edition of the Highlander.
  • The total interior volume of the Pathfinder is greater than what's offered in the Highlander, and though the Nissan SUV maxes out at seven seats, it's far more comfortable than the Toyota option's eight-seat setup.
  • If you opt for the right configuration, the Pathfinder can far outperform the Highlander in terms of towing capability.
