The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Nissan Pathfinder is in a new place that's just right for families who want a big, comfortable, sensible wagon, but it's given up some of its path-finding heritage to get there. The 2013 Honda Pilot looks tough and truck-like from the outside, yet inside it's one of the better family haulers.
