Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Highlander Hybrid than in the Honda Pilot, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Toyota Highlander Hybrid 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
With the Toyota Highlander Hybrid, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Honda Pilot, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Highlander Hybrid.
