2016 Honda Pilot vs. 2016 Toyota 4Runner Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Pilot than in the Toyota 4Runner. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Honda Pilot and the Toyota 4Runner.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda Pilot as you will with the Toyota 4Runner, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Honda Pilot or the Toyota 4Runner, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Honda Pilot and the Toyota 4Runner have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Pilot is much wider than the Toyota 4Runner, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Honda Pilot, which is slightly longer than the Toyota 4Runner.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Honda Pilot doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota 4Runner.

Handling
The Honda Pilot has a larger turning radius than the Toyota 4Runner, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Honda Pilot will do just as well as the Toyota 4Runner, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Honda Pilot has a little more horsepower than the Toyota 4Runner.

Utility
The Honda Pilot offers greater seating capacity than the Toyota 4Runner, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Honda Pilot has less cargo space than the Toyota 4Runner, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Honda Pilot comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota 4Runner.
