2017 Nissan Pathfinder vs 2017 Toyota Highlander near Worcester, MA

When it comes to finding an SUV that can accommodate your whole family in terms of space and performance, the options may seem overwhelming. Here at Milford Nissan, we have put together this comparison of the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder vs 2017 Toyota Highlander near Worcester, MA, to make the decision simple. Once you see how impressive the Pathfinder is, come take it for a test drive!

If your day consists of dropping the kids off at school, picking up groceries, and taking the littles one out for an afternoon at the EcoTarium, you need a vehicle that can keep up. The Pathfinder is the clear winner here, as its base trim comes equipped with a powerful 3.5L V6 engine that can crank out 284-hp and 295 lb.-ft. of torque. The Highlander falls short with only a 2.7L 4-cylinder engine on its lowest trim, which puts out much weaker numbers with 185-hp and 184 lb.-ft. of torque. Thrifty parents will appreciate that the Pathfinder gives you muscle and efficiency with an impressive 27 MPG hwy1. Even though it has a smaller engine, the Highlander will still cost you more trips to the gas station with only 24 MPG hwy2 and a smaller fuel tank.

Versatility is also high on the checklist and the Pathfinder gets another gold star in this 2017 Nissan Pathfinder vs 2017 Toyota Highlander near Worcester, MA, comparison. While both vehicles feature 7-passenger capacity, you’ll have plenty of space for people and gear with 16 cubic ft. behind the third row3 in the Pathfinder. The Highlander, however, may force you to leave someone or something behind with only 13.8 cubic ft. with all seats in place4. Plus, your backseat passengers will get to stretch out and relax with the 41.7 inches of rear legroom that the Pathfinder offers, whereas the Highlander only gives 38.4 inches of rear legroom. If you want to bring your camper out for a weekend at Cascades West Conservation Area, you’ll have the option with the Pathfinder’s superior 6,000-lb. maximum towing capacity5. Even when equipped with the available 3.5L V6 engine on higher trim levels, the best the Highlander can offer is a 5,000-lb. maximum towing capacity6.

It’s easy to understand why we think the Pathfinder is the ideal SUV for your growing family. We hope that our 2017 Nissan Pathfinder vs 2017 Toyota Highlander near Worcester, MA, comparison has helped shed some light on the competition. Come visit us at Milford Nissan soon!

I couldn’t be happier with my purchase of a used 2017 Nissan leaf. Milford Nissan’s Staff —especially Chris and Guy were incredibly informative, helpful, accommodating and responsive along the entire process. I live in New Hampshire and have a very busy schedule – on top of the coronavirus situation-they helped me do the entire purchase onlineAnd over the phone and even brought the car to me at my town hall to finalize everything! I would wholeheartedly recommend this dealership to my friends and family.

I never knew a car-buying experience could actually be enjoyable! Jan Janiek was absolutely wonderful to work with. Unlike other dealerships, the folks at Milford Nissan made me feel comfortable and valued as a customer. I never felt pressured or rushed; I love that they didn't feel the need to "play the game" when negotiating, which is a tremendous relief! Jan gave me a full personalized tutorial of my new vehicle to make sure I felt comfortable with all the new features. I could tell that his customers' safety and satisfaction is a top priority. Thank you, Jan! I am very happy to be a part of the Milford Nissan family.

Had a vehicle ready and waiting for me to test drive when I got there. Once I got to signing, everything was smooth sailing. Very pleased with the deal I got and will be going back!

We recently bought a 2020 Nissan Armada from Tony Chamoun, General Manager. He was a dream to deal with. We are from out of state and this was our first time buying an online vehicle. Tony put us at ease on this purchase. He facetimes us to show us the vehicle. He was extremely great at communicating with us and keeping us informed on all the steps in buying the vehicle, receiving our money and transportation of the vehicle. I highly recommend Tony and his team at Milford Nissan. I dealt briefly with Jim Farrell, Sales Associate and he was extremely helpful and knowledgeable too. Great job Milford Nissan. We love our vehicle and you made the process seamless.

As a recent satisfied customer, I can’t say enough good things about the Milford Nissan dealership especially since my dealings with them were in the midst of the pandemic. In my initial telephone interactions their responses were prompt, clear and helpful making the ride to Milford worthwhile. Upon my arrival I was greeted by Eric Taylor, who made every effort to make me feel comfortable that all appropriate health precautions were being practiced while helping me identify the right vehicle. Eric was by far the most respectful, knowledgeable and genuine car salesman I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Not only was he very familiar with the Nissan options, he was also patient with my questions and never made me feel rushed or pressured. Once I decided on a vehicle, he made the process as streamlined as possible. From negotiating my trade, to discussing financing, to coordinating the final logistics to get me in my new car, his professionalism was consistent. I don’t typically write reviews but buying a car through Milford Nissan, and in particular working with Eric, was an exceptionally smooth and pleasant transaction worthy of this review. In my opinion, you can’t ask for more from a car buying experience.

My family has bought 5, and soon to be 6 cars from Tony and I am not sure I can put into words what a great experience we have all had. Originally, we purchased a Nissan Armada as a family car and we had such a great experience with Tony that when it was time to buy a first car for my son, we came back. Well, kids being kids, my son managed to total the Nissan Rogue, not once but twice. Replacing the car was secondary to Tony - all he was concerned about was how my son was doing. I literally bought 3 Nissan Rogue's in less than 18 months and to say that the transaction was flawless is an under-statement. In fact, I believe my son got a big Tony hug after each new car! I spoke so highly of Tony and Milford Nissan that when my Dad's Infiniti lease was up, he too became a customer and I will attest that his review would be the same as mine. If you are interested in buying/leasing a car without the hassle you are used to from other dealers, and you want someone you feel is on your side, look no further. I promise you won't regret it one bit. Keep it up Tony and Milford Nissan! Who's next?
