There are plenty of drivers in West Palm Beach, Jupiter, and Palm Beach Gardens who want a crossover SUV that offers confident performance, significant space, and a refined interior. The recently redesigned 2015 Toyota Highlander checks off each of these items. Some buyers might also consider the 2015 Nissan Pathfinder, but a closer look proves the Toyota Highlander the clear champion.

The Nissan Pathfinder, however, holds no more than 79.8 cubic feet. What’s more, you can comfortably seat more people in the 2015 Toyota Highlander thanks to its available eight-seat format, while the Nissan Pathfinder only provides seating for seven.
