Advantages of the 2018 Toyota Highlander
The table up above details a few important specifications to consider when shopping for a new crossover, analyzing each model’s basic trim level. We thought we’d start from the bottom and work our way down to give you a better understanding of the similarities and differences between each vehicle, and where the 2018 Toyota Highlander has an advantage.
When it comes to similarities, the first row is definitely a good indicator. We started our comparison by looking at fuel efficiency, which is arguably the most important specification in any vehicle on today’s market. But when it comes to the Highlander and Pathfinder, the two crossovers are virtually identical as they both offer 10.2 l/100km combined. However, when it comes to power and space, two other very important aspects, the Highlander holds its head high.
2018 Toyota Highlander
2018 Nissan Pathfinder
|10.2 l/100km||Combined Fuel Efficiency||10.2 l/100km|
|295 HP||Horsepower||284 HP|
|4,244 lbs.||Curb Weight||4,292 lbs.|
|83.7 cu. ft.||Passenger Volume||79.8 cu. ft.|
Offering 11 extra horsepower, the Highlander doesn’t have a huge power advantage but enough of one that you might notice it if you were to drive them both side by side. The advantage is solidified by the fact that the Highlander also weighs less than its Nissan counterpart, by almost 50 lbs. to be exact. But most importantly, you and your passengers will have an extra 3.9 cubic feet of space to stretch out and get comfortable in.
If these advantages are enticing, we recommend you come in and check out the vehicle for yourself. Just schedule a test drive behind the wheel of a 2018 Toyota Highlander right here on our website and we’ll get you in the driver’s seat at your earliest convenience.
