2013 Toyota Highlander Hybrid vs. 2014 Honda Pilot Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Toyota Highlander Hybrid offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Honda Pilot, with comparable head- and legroom. The Toyota Highlander Hybrid will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its 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 Toyota Highlander Hybrid as you will with the Honda Pilot, 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). The Toyota Highlander Hybrid is somewhat more expensive than the Honda Pilot. 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 Toyota Highlander Hybrid and the Honda Pilot have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Toyota Highlander Hybrid is much slimmer than the Honda Pilot, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Toyota Highlander Hybrid takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Honda Pilot.

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

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

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

Utility
The Toyota Highlander Hybrid has less seating than the Honda Pilot, making the Honda Pilot the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Toyota Highlander Hybrid has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Honda Pilot.

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