If you are in the market for a family-sized SUV that checks all of the boxes, learn where the Nissan Pathfinder outperforms the Toyota Highlander. After you find out more about the performance abilities, cargo capacity, and connected features in the full model lineup, we think you'll find it easy to decide which new SUV is best for you.

Every new 2020 Pathfinder arrives with an Intelligent all-wheel-drive traction control system that maximizes power to wheels with the most grip on rugged surfaces such as grass and gravel snow, and mud. The Pathfinder also offers selectable drive modes for you to toggle between as your drive demands. Should harsher road or weather conditions appear, the 4WD Lock Mode will get you through. This four-wheel-drive SUV also comes with Hill Descent Control. Only certain Highlander trims offer Dynamic Torque Control or On-Demand AWD.
The engine in the new Pathfinder pairs with an Xtronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) system that delivers crisp shifts and a smooth ride. The Toyota Highlander, however, comes with an electronically controlled automatic transmission. We're confident that after taking a test drive in both vehicles, you'll see which SUV provides ideal control.

The 2020 Pathfinder offers such highlights as NissanConnect, an available GPS navigation, SiriusXM Traffic, and an 8.0-inch infotainment system. When you have a long journey ahead, Nissan will get you there in comfort and style. Enjoy your favorite music and media to the fullest through the Bose® 13-speaker sound system. While the Nissan offers HD Radio, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, and a Bose® audio system, Toyota Highlander owners will have to settle for a 12-speaker JBL GreenEdge sound system. To hear the difference for yourself, visit our local car dealership serving near Greeneville and Southwest Virginia. Riders in the second row will ride happily with headphones, two 8.0-Inch monitors, and wireless remote controls. The new Toyota Highlander comes up short with only a single 9.0-inch display for rear-seat passengers. When thinking of your passengers, think of Nissan then apply for Nissan lease deals and finance offers.
The 2020 Pathfinder arrives with intelligent safety features that help you look out for your safety. The Intelligent Around View Monitor helps you monitor what's behind you while reversing so you can back out of that tricky parking space with confidence with the help of a wide-angle view of what's behind you. When it comes to watching your back, the 2020 Pathfinder also comes with Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Blind Spot Warning to help you avoid a side or rear collision. If there is a sudden change in speed from the car ahead of you, Automatic Emergency Braking helps you avoid accidents. While the 2020 Highlander boasts Toyota Safety Sense and offers many advanced driver-assist features, it does not come with the Intelligent Around View Monitor found on the Nissan.
