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
The Honda Pilot requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Toyota 4Runner, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Honda Pilot is somewhat more expensive 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
In terms of towing capacity, the Toyota 4Runner is clearly the choice over the Honda Pilot for pulling heavy loads. 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
The Honda Pilot offers greater seating capacity than the Toyota 4Runner, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Honda Pilot has less cargo space than the Toyota 4Runner, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
