New Pilot for Sale

The 2019 Honda Pilot and 2018 Nissan Pathfinder are two options for families searching for a three-row SUV. That doesn’t mean both offer what Louisville shoppers need in terms of space and safety — especially during Boulder winters. When you compare the new Honda Pilot vs. Nissan Pathfinder, the Honda SUV reveals itself to be roomier, plus it comes standard with a driver assistance package. Read on to compare these two SUVs side by side!

Pathfinder or Pilot: Interior Dimensions

Although both are three-row SUVs, you and your family will have more breathing room inside the Pilot. For starters, it seats up to eight people, whereas the Nissan Pathfinder seats seven. Additionally, the Pilot offers more space for rear-seat passengers: 40.2 inches of headroom in the second row and 44.6 inches of hip room in the third row. The Pathfinder offers just 39.4 inches and 42 inches, respectively. With the rear seats folded, the Pilot offers up to 83.9 cubic feet vs. 79.5 cubic feet inside the Pathfinder.

Pathfinder or Pilot: Safety Features

Based on their ratings, safety is a top priority for the Honda Pilot and Nissan Pathfinder, but the former is simply better equipped. The 2019 Honda Pilot LX comes standard with Honda Sensing — a suite of driver-assistive safety features.
