Honda Pilot vs Toyota Highlander

Few vehicles on the market really can compete with the 2018 Honda Pilot. Regardless of whether you go with the Pilot LX, EX, EX-L, Touring, or Elite, you'll get the best in fuel efficiency, technology, and safety. However, the 2018 Toyota Highlander gives the Pilot a run for its money. That's why our team here at Boardwalk Honda wrote this Honda Pilot vs Toyota Highlander review.

2018 Honda Pilot

We'd like to introduce our customers in Atlantic City, Egg Harbor, and Galloway to two incredible SUVs.

Fuel Efficiency: 2018 Pilot vs 2018 Highlander

Behind the wheel of the 2018 Honda Pilot, you can enjoy fuel economy ratings of up to 19 miles per gallon in the city and 27 miles per gallon on the highway.1 Now, that's pretty cool!

On the other hand, we're not quite as impressed with the Toyota. For example, if you go with the Highlander LE (with front-wheel drive, a 6-speed automatic transmission, and a 2.7-liter 4-cylinder engine), you'll only get 24 miles per gallon on the highway. And even if you go with the Highlander Limited (with all-wheel drive, a direct shift 8-speed automatic transmission, and a 3.5-liter V6 engine)-one of their top trims-you're still only looking at 26 miles per gallon on the highway! What type of nonsense is that? Go Honda!

Technology & Safety - Honda & Toyota

Furthermore, when it comes to technology and safety, Honda still reigns supreme. Check out the deets:

  • Plenty of musical features and software: Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, Bluetooth® Audio, Pandora®, Available Sirius XM® Radio, Available HD Radio™, and more. Time for blissful listening.
  • Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™: It provides you with advanced 3D schematics of nearby terrain, buildings, road signs, and routes. Everything is designed to get you on track.
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines: Finally, parking is way easier.
  • Available Collision Mitigation Braking System™: Together, let's prevent a fatal accident, okay?
  • The rest of the Honda Sensing® Safety Suite: Road Departure Mitigation System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist System, etc. This is state-of-the-art safety technology!
2018 Honda Pilot Interior

And that's without even getting into the Pilot's more traditional comfort and entertainment considerations, such as Tri-Zone Automatic Climate Control, five USB ports, several outlets, HDMI, power moonroof functionality, a 9-inch rear entertainment system, etc. This SUV is decked out!

On the other hand, while the Toyota Highlander offers a few compatible audio systems and safety features, the SUV is nothing to write home about. All in all, it looks like Honda dominates.
