2020 Nissan Pathfinder vs. 2020 Honda Pilot | Edinburg, TX

2020 Nissan Pathfinder vs. 2020 Honda Pilot - Fiesta Nissan in Edinburg, Texas

Are you in the market for a rugged SUV that delivers on performance, safety, and interior comfort and convenience? Two of the top family-friendly SUVs include the 2020 Nissan Pathfinder and the 2020 Honda Pilot. But which is the superior model? If you examine the two side by side, you will clearly see all the ways the Nissan Pathfinder bests its competitor.

Interior Space

Is having lots of room important to you — whether for driving around with the family or simply filling up the back with luggage for a solo or duo trip somewhere exciting? If so, you will want to go with the 2020 Pathfinder over the 2020 Pilot. The Pathfinder offers more second-row legroom (41.7 inches) than the Pilot (38.4 inches) and more overall passenger volume (154 cubic feet in the Pathfinder vs. just 152.9 cubic feet in the Pilot).

Towing and Horsepower

The standard maximum towing capacity for the Honda Pilot is a measly 3,500 pounds. That comes courtesy of a 3.5-liter V6 engine. The standard engine powering a properly equipped Nissan Pathfinder, a 3.5-liter direct-injection gasoline (DIG) V6, nearly doubles that, delivering 6,000 pounds of towing capacity.

The standard engine in the Nissan Pathfinder is also more potent, cranking out 284 horsepower compared to just 280 from the Honda Pilot.


Both the 2020 Nissan Pathfinder and the 2020 Honda Pilot are impressive when it comes to safety technology. However, the Nissan Pathfinder is available with an Intelligent Around View® Monitor, but the Honda Pilot does not offer a comparable technology. This monitor gives you a true 360-degree bird’s-eye view of your Pathfinder.

Other important Nissan safety technologies to keep in mind as you consider an SUV for your family are Automatic Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Warning, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

The 2020 Nissan Pathfinder is available now at Fiesta Nissan in Edinburg, Texas.
