Enjoying more space is one reason drivers decide to buy an SUV. The 2016 Honda Pilot delivers with available seating for eight passengers and a total passenger volume of 153.1 cubic feet inside the Elite trim. Meanwhile, the Nissan Pathfinder settles with just seven-passenger seating.

Cargo room is another important component to consider when looking for a new SUV. Owners of the Honda Pilot will enjoy 83.9 cubic feet of cargo room, with 16.5 cubic feet available behind the third row – that’s enough room to fit you and seven friends plus an 82-quart cooler. The Nissan Pathfinder only comes close to matching the cargo room of the Pilot. Specifically, the Pathfinder has only 79.8 cubic feet of cargo volume and 16 cubic feet of that volume behind the third row. In addition to space, potential SUV drivers consider power. The 2016 Honda Pilot comes with a 3.5-liter V6 engine that delivers 280 horsepower. To help improve efficiency, this engine can be paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission, which provides smooth shifting between gears.

To promote even better fuel economy, the Pilot Touring and Elite models include Idle-Stop, which automatically turns off the engine while you’re stopped. Then, as soon as you take your foot off the brake, the engine turns back on.

The Nissan Pathfinder has a 3.5-liter V6 engine as well, although it only provides 260 horsepower and is paired with an Xtronic continuously variable transmission.

Passengers in the front seat of the 2016 Honda Pilot will have access to the 8-inch display audio touchscreen. Working much like your smartphone, you can swipe, tap, and pinch through menus to control music and other entertainment functions. In the back seat is a 9-inch screen for playing movies.

The Nissan Pathfinder provides comparable technology systems, although they may not be as intuitive for some drivers. In the end, you’ll have to decide for yourself which system you feel more comfortable using.
