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). When looking only at MSRP, the Honda Pilot will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota 4Runner.

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.

Handling
The Honda Pilot has the same turning radius as the Toyota 4Runner, so they both maneuver the same 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.

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

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Honda Pilot more than the Toyota 4Runner, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Honda Pilot as you will in the Toyota 4Runner.
