Comparing the 2021 Honda Pilot vs 2020 Nissan Pathfinder puts two of the industry’s most popular 3-row crossover SUVs in direct competition. Each one delivers the segment’s trademark blend of power and capability with spacious interiors and first-class fittings, but a closer look shows the Honda Pilot coming out ahead across the following key factors:

  • Cabin Space
  • Features
  • Safety

Pilot vs. Pathfinder: Cabin Space

  • Seating Capacity: Up to 8 with the Pilot vs. 7 with the Pathfinder.
  • Cargo Space Behind the 3rd Row: Up to 18.5 cubic feet in the Pilot vs. 16.2 in the Pathfinder.
  • Cargo Space Behind the 2nd Row: Up to 55.9 cubic feet in the Pilot vs. 47.4 in the Pathfinder.
  • Cargo Space Behind the 1st Row: Up to 109 cubic feet in the Pilot vs. 79.5 in the Pathfinder.

You come to the 3-row crossover SUV segment expecting plenty of cargo space and room for the whole family, and the Honda Pilot simply ticks those boxes better than the Nissan Pathfinder.

Pilot vs. Pathfinder: Features

The Honda Pilot is able to provide premium technology as standard, including a Speed-Sensitive Volume Compensation (SVC) system and Multi-Angle Rearview Camera unavailable with the Nissan Pathfinder at any price.

It also offers several innovative available features that are absent from the Pathfinder, with highlights including:

  • CabinTalk® In-Car PA System
  • Power Tailgate with Available Hands-Free Access
  • Apple CarPlay/Android Auto Compatibility

Pilot vs. Pathfinder: Safety

Honda has helped push semi-autonomous driving technology forward by fitting almost every commercial model currently available with state of the art Honda Sensing driver assistance features. Just a few systems fitted as standard with the new Honda Pilot include:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
  • Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM)

With the Nissan Pathfinder, those features either aren’t fitted at all or are only available with higher trims.
