2014 Toyota Highlander

The 2014 Toyota Highlander features improvements in technology, size and power. The 2014 Highlander has room to fit up to eight passengers and provides backseat passengers with more leg room than the Pathfinder and provides 34 percent more cargo space than before. The 2014 Toyota Highlander Canada price starts out a little bit higher than the Pathfinder at $31,680.
The Highlander was an already large vehicle that was praised on smooth handling and steering agility but now it is much larger and still holds tight to the curves. Offering front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, Toyota has managed to offer a large vehicle with a six speed transmission that brings less gas consumption, fast acceleration and plenty of entertainment and technology. The 2014 Toyota Highlander interior is well laid-out, sophisticated and composed of mostly high quality materials.
When it comes to options, there are many available features found inside the 2014 Toyota Highlander that you will not find inside the 2014 Nissan Pathfinder including: remote trunk release, satellite radio, backup camera, leather-wrapped steering wheel, passenger and driver illuminated mirrors and automatic headlights. While both of these mid-size crossovers are powered by a 3.5-litre 6 cylinder engine, the 2014 Highlander offers slightly more power at 270 horses. When it comes to off-road capabilities, with the optional AWD, the 2014 Highlander can tackle most trails and virtually any on-road weather condition mother nature throws its way.

2014 Nissan Pathfinder

Also growing in 2014, the Nissan Pathfinder has stretched out to acquire 3rd row seating allowing up to seven passengers, with good fuel economy ratings. The 2014 Nissan Pathfinder Canada price starts at $29,999 which is slightly more affordable than the price offered by the Highlander. The 2014 Nissan Pathfinder is large and in charge with its articulate steering thus matching its rival, the 2014 Toyota Highlander in terms of handling.
Behind the third row, you will find more available cargo space in the Pathfinder than the Highlander; however, when all the rows are folded flat the 2014 Toyota Highlander barely comes out on top for the most cargo capacity. The Pathfinder does well in safety ratings and is the more affordable of the two vehicles with a stylish interior. This SUV is well suited to accommodate the needs of a large family but lacks the incredibly smooth and quiet ride achieved with the 2014 Highlander.
The 2014 Nissan Pathfinder interior is upscale and offers impressive and functional looks and features. However, the 2014 Toyota Highlander interior is a little bit more refined, probably the best interior of this class. There are some features offered in the 2014 Pathfinder that you will not find in the 2014 Highlander including: remote start, keyless start, cargo shade and a luggage rack. Powered down the road by a 3.5-litre engine, the 2014 Nissan Pathfinder offers a little less power than the Highlander at 260 horses. With the optional AWD, the Nissan Pathfinder is more than ready to handle some light off-roading and all weather conditions on pavement.

And The Winner Is…

With a better exterior look and supplying room for an extra passenger, the 2014 Toyota Highlander, in my opinion, seems to outclass the 2014 Nissan Pathfinder. When all rows are folded flat, the cargo space is very comparable, so why not offer the optional seating arrangement for an additional passenger? Furthermore, the 2014 Highlander offers a quieter and smoother ride that only comes at a slightly higher price than the 2014 Pathfinder. While both crossovers offer excellent fuel economy for a vehicle of this size, the Highlander accomplishes this task with better ride quality and quicker acceleration making it more fun to drive and more pleasing to ride in with better interior quality.
