2017 Honda Pilot vs 2017 Toyota Highlander

Full-size SUVs are popular among large families who live an active lifestyle—they offer plenty of cabin space, versatile cargo capabilities, and plenty of features to keep the family entertained. To show how Honda’s modern family SUV, the Pilot, stacks up against the competition, we’ve put together a comparison of the 2017 Honda Pilot vs the 2017 Toyota Highlander.

We compared the middle-of-the-line trims of both models: the Pilot EX-L and the Highlander Limited. Both SUVs feature similar premium amenities, but the Pilot offers a more affordable price tag. The Pilot also offers more cargo capacity both behind the 3rd row and overall. Although both SUVs are equipped with the same engine, the Highlander delivers about 15 more horsepower.
