Is the Atlas more practical than the Pathfinder?

Starting with the transmission, the Atlas provides an 8-speed automatic that is capable of smooth acceleration while still giving you the punch that you need. The Pathfinder uses a CVT, which are not only among the most subdued transmission options, but also the option most prone to failure, especially when utilized in a vehicle that frequently experiences high loads like an SUV.

Speaking of reliability, the Atlas offers a 6-year or 72,000-mile bumper-to-bumper and powertrain warranty. These are numbers that the Pathfinder cannot match in either category. With the Atlas, you are not just buying an SUV. You are buying peace of mind.

When you are looking at your next SUV, you are no doubt going to be concerned about how much room is in the interior. The Nissan Pathfinder may feel like it provides enough room for both passengers and cargo, until you see the absolutely spacious interior provided by the Atlas. Not only does it have huge amounts of room for its seven passenger seating capacity, but when you fold those seats down, you’ll have nearly 100 cubic-feet of room available for cargo. Whether you’re moving, going camping, or simply hauling stuff around, the Atlas makes it easy. You could almost say that the Atlas can move with the weight of the world on its shoulders.
