Honda Pilot vs Toyota Highlander
Few vehicles on the market can really compete with the 2020 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 2020 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.
We’d like to introduce our customers in Atlantic City, Egg Harbor, and Vineland to two incredible SUVs.
Performance: 2020 Pilot vs 2020 Highlander
The 2020 Honda Pilot and the Toyota Highlander both include respective 3.5L V6 engines under their hoods. Each engine is able to breach 275 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Although similar, the engines differ in some of their components. The Pilot includes Variable Cylinder Management™, a system that varies the number of cylinders used based on the current level of performance in an effort to improve efficiency.
Entertainment & Technology: Honda & Toyota
Furthermore, when it comes to technology and safety, both vehicles offer quite a lot in their respective cabins. Each SUV includes dashboard-mounted display screens that drivers can use to select their media options. These vehicles both include USB/auxiliary inputs, Bluetooth® connectivity, and traditional AM/FM radios.
The Pilot features the 7-speaker sound system while the Highlander comes outfitted with six speakers. On top of including an additional speaker, the Honda Pilot includes Speed-Sensitive Volume Compensation. This feature will automatically adjust the volume when there’s loud engine performance to ensure your listening doesn’t get interrupted.
The Honda Pilot also offers other available comfort and entertainment considerations: tri-zone automatic climate control, five USB ports, several outlets, HDMI, power moonroof functionality, a 9-inch Rear Entertainment System, and more. You can tailor this SUV to provide ultimate comfort, entertainment, and convenience.
Style & Appearance: Pilot vs Highlander
The Honda Pilot and the Toyota Highlander both offer unique styles that make them stand out in the SUV market. Both SUVs offer a powerful and commanding appearance. However, the Honda Pilot has what appears to be a much larger frame that gives it a sense of authority on the road. The Highlander, while stylish, was recently redesigned and has a more low-to-the-ground appearance—almost resembling a crossover rather than an SUV.
