2017 Toyota Highlander vs 2017 Nissan Pathfinder

Both the 2017 Toyota Highlander and the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder are members of the popular crossover family and offer plenty of qualities to impress any consumer. However, when making a decision as large as a vehicle purchase, it's smart to consider the differences in order to see which vehicle's features line up with your must-haves.

One notable difference between the two crossovers is the seating capacity. The 2017 Nissan Pathfinder is able to fit seven passengers, however, the 2017 Toyota Highlander comes available with eight passenger seating when purchasing the Limited and Limited Platinum trim levels. Both crossovers offer fuel efficiency of 20 miles per gallon in the city and 27 miles per gallon on the highway, but the new Highlander comes in a hybrid option that gets 30 miles per gallon in the city and 28 on the highway.

2017 Toyota Highlander Hodgkins, IL

The 2017 Toyota Highlander has all the qualities that make a dynamite family vehicle. One-step, second-row sliding seats make loading and unloading the kids a breeze, and available Entune Audio Plus gives you all the connectivity your passengers could ask for. Even though the new Highlander has an added sound control feature to make your ride a quiet and peaceful one, there may be a time when the captain or co-pilot needs to tell the crew in the back to "quiet down back there!" If that moment should arise, the Highlander comes with an available Driver Easy Speak, which amplifies the driver's voice and broadcasts it through a speaker in the backseat using a microphone. The excuse "We couldn't hear you!" won't fly anymore with the 2017 Toyota Highlander.

That's why the 2017 Highlander comes equipped with Toyota Safety Sense, a driver assist system that helps keep the vehicle and the driver on track.
