Pathfinder or Pilot: Interior Dimensions 

Both the Pilot and Pathfinder are three-row SUVs, but you and your family will find that you’ll have more room to spread out inside the Pilot. With seating for up to 8, and more room for passengers in the rear seats, the Pilot interior offers the comfort and versatility that Sunnyside-area families want.

Shopping for a three-row SUV? The 2021 Honda Pilot and 2020 Nissan Pathfinder are popular options for Ellensburg drivers. While both are similarly equipped, the Pilot offers the more spacious interior, along with more standard driver assist features than you’ll get with the Pathfinder.
