2016 Nissan Pathfinder vs. 2016 Toyota Highlander

Vacation season has arrived in the Central Valley, and many Sacramento-area drivers are being forced to choose which crossover SUV will be the vessel for their journey. In recent years, the crossover SUV segment has become enormously competitive, with many models offering terrific efficiency, spacious interior cabins, and potent performance in equal measure. This begs the question, which model is the best of the bunch. The two models shown here, the 2016 Nissan Pathfinder and 2016 Toyota Highlander, can credibly claim top-tier status. But which is better overall?

From the outset, we can say without hesitation that both the Pathfinder and the Highlander have earned their lofty reputations. Yet, by looking at a few key areas -- fuel economy, towing capacity, and convenience features -- you can see that the Pathfinder has the Highlander on the ropes right off the bat. With significant edges in such key areas, it should come as little surprise that, well into its third decade of production, the Nissan Pathfinder continues to blaze new trails.
