The Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander are two of the most widely recognized names in the family SUV segment. These midsize SUVs offer spacious accommodations, three rows of seating, and sophisticated features, making them equally appealing. But which of these is the right choice for you and your family?

The Honda Sensing® suite comes standard on each Honda model and provides elevated peace of mind on each drive. The driver-assist suite includes a lane-keeping assist system, adaptive cruise control, road departure mitigation system (RDM), and the Collision Mitigation Braking System™(CMBS™). The sophisticated CMBS can automatically apply brake pressure if it detects a collision with a pedestrian or vehicle ahead of you. You can rest assured that the Pilot is resilient, as it was pushed to the limit at the Automotive Enviro Testing (AET) facility in Baudette, Minnesota, which has some of the harshest weather conditions in America. Additionally, thanks to the Intelligent Traction Management system with Snow Mode—Mud & Sand Modes available—versatility and capability are further enhanced.
Cargo capacity and other features include:
The Toyota Highlander has slightly better gas mileage with 21 city / 29 highway, while the Honda Pilot offers 20 city / 27 highway miles per gallon. However, the Honda Pilot makes up for this with its increased spaciousness. In contrast, one of the few things a Toyota Highlander does better than the Honda Pilot is offering a hybrid trim. If you opt for the hybrid, the Highlander will provide an incredible fuel economy of 36 city / 35 highway miles per gallon; this, of course, will cost a bit more upfront, as hybrid trims typically have a higher price tag. The Toyota Highlander also boasts a slightly more modernized interior with the higher trims featuring leather seating, a head-up display, and a JBL premium audio system.View New Inventory
