If you’re shopping for a new family-friendly SUV in Connecticut, you may have already narrowed your choice down to the 2020 Honda Pilot vs. Toyota Highlander. Both vehicles are well-equipped, but only the Pilot offers standard V6 power throughout available trim levels, along with more space in the cabin for passengers and cargo. Find out which will best suit your needs in this Pilot vs. Highlander comparison from Honda of Watertown.
Getting up to speed on I-84 while enjoying efficient fuel economy is the best of both worlds, and the Honda Pilot offers just that. See how the Pilot compares to the Highlander in terms of power and fuel efficiency:
If you are shopping for a midsize SUV, it’s likely that you’re expecting to benefit from robust towing and payload capacities. The Toyota Highlander can provide a payload capacity of 1,486 to 1,602 pounds, and with the optional trailer hitch, the entry level LE model can tow a maximum of 1,500 pounds. The Honda Pilot LX, however, has a payload capacity of 1,420 to 1,625 pounds, and when properly equipped it can tow up to 3,500 pounds with 2WD. If you upgrade to AWD, the Pilot towing capacity jumps up to 5,000 pounds. For Southbury families planning on towing a boat out to Burr Pond State Park, the Pilot is the better choice.
Both of these three-row SUVs offers seating for up to eight, but the 152.9 cubic feet of passenger volume in the Honda Pilot is eight cubic feet more than what you’ll get in the Toyota Highlander. That equals more comfort for your passengers. Even those in the third row, which is notoriously cramped in most three-row SUVs, will enjoy 57.6 inches of shoulder room in the Pilot, compared to 55 inches in the Highlander.
The Honda Pilot also provides more cargo space than the Toyota Highlander:
