Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Highlander than in the Honda Pilot, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Toyota Highlander offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda Pilot, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

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 Highlander, 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 Honda Pilot is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Highlander.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Pilot is much wider than the Toyota Highlander, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Honda Pilot takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota Highlander.
