2019 Honda Pilot vs. 2019 Toyota Highlander

Many drivers on the hunt for an 8-passenger SUV consider the 2019 Toyota Highlander, but it’s far from the only option available to our neighbors in the St. Clair Shores region. Before you start exploring the Highlander performance and interior, you’ll definitely want to take a closer look at the 2019 Honda Pilot, which offers a stronger base engine, better highway fuel economy, and a more spacious interior. Compare the Honda Pilot vs. Toyota Highlander with Jeffrey Honda before you make a final decision.

Pilot or Highlander: Performance & Fuel-Efficiency

Comparing the horsepower and fuel economy specs of the 2019 Honda Pilot vs. 2018 Toyota Highlander, it’s not hard to see that the Pilot comes out ahead:

  • 2019 Toyota Highlander
    • Base Engine: 2.7-liter 4-cylinder
    • 185 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque
    • 20 mpg city and 24 mpg highway
    • 6-Speed Automatic Transmission
  • 2019 Honda Pilot
    • Base Engine: 3.5-liter V6
    • 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque
    • 19 mpg city** and 27 mpg highway**.
    • 6-Speed Automatic Transmission

The Toyota Highlander does offer an available V6 engine, but it’s only available with an expensive trim upgrade. You’ll wind up paying around thousands more to get a V6 in the Highlander! Although the Pilot gets one less mpg on Warren and Sterling Heights city streets, its advantage on the highway more than makes up for this minor loss.

Pilot or Highlander: Interior Space

Whether you’re filling up the cabin with passengers or loading up heavy cargo, you’ll find that the process is easier when you drive with Honda. Compare their interior dimensions before you step inside:

  • 2019 Toyota Highlander
      • Total Passenger Volume: 144.0 cubic feet
      • Cargo Volume (Behind 3rd Row): 13.8 cubic feet
      • Cargo Volume (Behind 1st Row): 83.7 cubic feet
