By  | 

If you are in the market for a new SUV you might be considering the Nissan Pathfinder or the 2016 Toyota Highlander. Both are great choices and due to this you might have a hard time choosing from between them. So which will you go for?

The Nisan Pathfinder and the Toyota Highlander both offer up V6 engines and they both come with three seating rows. Other than this they offer up some differences. The Pathfinder comes in with a price tag of around $29, 990 and the Toyota Highlander comes in at about $30, 490, so there really isn’t that much difference when it comes to price.

The Nissan Pathfinder offers subdued curves and the interior is functional without being over designed. The front end of the Toyota Highlander looks more like a truck that an SUV thanks to the huge grille along with the wheel arches that are somewhat over exaggerated. The cabin is similar to that of a car with some finer detailers from trucks in the Toyota range.

The Nissan Pathfinder is offered with one engine and this is the V6 3.5 litre with direct injection and 284 horses. The vehicle should offer you around 20mpg when driving in the city and 27mpg out on the highway, with 23 combined.

The Toyota Highlander has the V6 3.5 litre which has been upgraded for 2017 and it offer up 295 horses with an 8 speed automatic gearbox. The Highlander offers about 21mpg when you travel around the city and 27mpg when out on the highway.

So which would you choose, would it be the Toyota Highlander or would you choose the Nissan Pathfinder?
