Similar seating arrangements are available for the Toyota Highlander, with the eight-passenger arrangement as standard equipment on the basic model and the 7person arrangement as standard equipment later in the lineup. The Pathfinder performs exceptionally well in terms of cabin space. It has a total passenger volume of 148.0 cubic feet, but the Highlander only has a total passenger volume of 136.1 cubic feet.
