Last year, the Honda Pilot was completely remodeled and redesigned as Honda reintroduced the midsize crossover with a completely new image. Gone was the boxy architecture of previous generation, replaced instead by a sleek, modern design that exudes sophistication and style. Packed with an even better suite of features covering everything from safety to entertainment and everything in between, the new Pilot makes an even better option in its segment than ever before.
We thought we’d show you one example of why we think it makes such a good option by seeing how it measures up to one of its competitors. So with that in mind, we decided to compare the 2018 Honda Pilot vs 2018 Nissan Pathfinder.
Advantages of the 2018 Pilot
2018 Honda Pilot
2018 Nissan Pathfinder
|10.2 l/100km||Combined Fuel Efficiency||10.0 l/100km|
|280 HP / 262 lb-ft.||Power Ratings||284 HP / 259 lb-ft.|
|16.5 cu. ft.||Cargo Capacity||16.0 cu. ft.|
|83.9 cu. ft.||Max Cargo Capacity||79.8 cu. ft.|
As you can see, the Pilot gets off to a rocky start at the beginning of the table. But 0.2 litres every 100 kilometres is hardly an advantage for the Pathfinder. You might be saving a few quarters a year, but it won’t make that much of a difference on your wallet. The second row then turns to power ratings, and as you can see each crossover has its own advantage in this row. The Pathfinder offers 4 extra horsepower, but the Pilot offers 10 extra pound-feet of torque. Essentially, power is a tossup between the two crossovers, so we turn to space.
In particular, we turn to cargo space. Behind the back row, the Pilot offers 0.5 cubic feet of extra space for you to fill with luggage or whatever you need to bring along. Drop the back seats down, and you have an extra 4.1 cu. ft. of space. Both of those advantage translate to quite a bit more room for whatever you need to fill your car with. So, as we mentioned, if you still think the Pilot might be a great option, schedule a test drive and come right down to Wheaton Honda today.
