2016 Toyota Highlander vs 2016 Nissan Pathfinder
The Toyota Highlander was one of the vehicles that helped create the mid-size crossover segment when it was unveiled back in 1999. Now, more than 15 years later, it is still one of the best-selling vehicles in that segment. The Highlander may have grown larger over the years, but it is still every bit as reliable, functional and fun-to-drive as the original version was. Toyota has taken the refinement and class of this vehicle to all-new heights with the recently released 2016 model year. Toyota has given this model a bold exterior redesign as well as an optional hybrid model that a lot of customers are excited about.
There are very few vehicles in the world that can even come close to comparing to the quality, craftsmanship and style of the Highlander. However, one of the vehicles that is somewhat comparable is Nissan’s Pathfinder model. Several years ago the pathfinder was transformed from a rugged truck-based SUV to the sleek and fun crossover vehicle that we have today, and its market share has skyrocketed as a result. We have decided to match up the new 2016 Toyota Highlander vs 2016 Nissan Pathfinder in order to figure out which vehicle is best in the new model year.
2016 Toyota Highlander: Functional and Sophisticated
There are several ways that the new 2016 Toyota Highlander is superior to the 2016 Nissan Pathfinder. One of the ways that the Highlander is miles ahead of the Pathfinder is with its extensive and advanced feature set. The 2016 Toyota Highlander comes with features such as: EnTune Audio with Intelligent Touch Controls, large touch-screen display, three-zone automatic climate control, standard backup camera with projected path, and so much more. The 2016 Nissan Pathfinder also comes well equipped, but it does not come with nearly as many new and innovative features as the Highlander does.
Another way that the new 2016 Toyota Highlander is superior to the 2016 Nissan Pathfinder is with its stylish exterior appearance. The Highlander was recently restyled with excitement in mind. It has a bold and aggressive grille, available LED running lights and an aerodynamic design that will really turn some heads in traffic. In comparison, the Nissan Pathfinder has a styling that does not stand out nearly as much as the Highlander. It isn’t a bad looking vehicle, but it is somewhat plain if you ask us.
