2017 Honda Pilot vs. 2017 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda Pilot offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Toyota Highlander Hybrid, with comparable head- and legroom. The Toyota Highlander Hybrid will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Pilot.

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 Highlander Hybrid, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Honda Pilot will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Highlander Hybrid. 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 Highlander Hybrid have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Pilot is much wider than the Toyota Highlander Hybrid, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Honda Pilot takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota Highlander Hybrid.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Honda Pilot transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Toyota Highlander Hybrid.

Handling
The Honda Pilot has the same turning radius as the Toyota Highlander Hybrid, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Honda Pilot is clearly the choice over the Toyota Highlander Hybrid for pulling heavy loads. The Honda Pilot has a little more horsepower than the Toyota Highlander Hybrid.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Honda Pilot and the Toyota Highlander Hybrid. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Honda Pilot as you will in the Toyota Highlander Hybrid.

Warranty
The Honda Pilot comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Highlander Hybrid.
