2018 Toyota Highlander vs. 2019 Honda Pilot

If you’re in the market for safe, efficient, feature-packed SUV, there are few options better than the 2018 Toyota Highlander. The spacious crossover, capable of accommodating as many as eight passengers, outclasses popular favorites like the restyled 2019 Honda Pilot by providing more standard and available safety equipment, a fuel-efficient hybrid engine option, and creature comforts that might make you look forward to morning Draper traffic. Check out our side-by-side comparison of these two titans, and then read on to see how easy it is to get your hands an affordable, efficient Toyota today.


Toyota is committed to keeping drivers secure, with standard features like whiplash injury-lessening seats, Downhill Assist Control, and a driver alert monitor; there’s even an available 360-degree Bird’s Eye View camera that allows drivers to visualize the area surrounding the SUV, making avoiding obstacles while backing into tight Provo parking spaces much easier. Honda shoppers sadly won’t be able to get their hands on Downhill Assist Control, a driver alert monitor, or a 360-degree camera system. The Honda Pilot lacks whiplash protection as well, so in a rear-end collision, cabin occupants are far more likely to be left vulnerable to head and neck injuries.

The Toyota Highlander can be equipped with an efficient gas/electric 3.6L V6 hybrid engine that delivers 306 net horsepower and an EPA-estimated 30 mpg/city– better than many sedans currently available. The Honda Pilot does not offer a hybrid engine option. Drivers must instead settle for a 3.5L V6 powerplant capable of generating just 280 hp and achieving fuel economy of up to 27 mpg/city according to recent EPA estimates.

Toyota Highlander drivers have access to abundant amenities such as one-touch power windows, standard automatic headlights and heated exterior mirrors, and a rear cargo window that can be opened, allowing for improved airflow and easy access to rear cargo without hassling with the rear door. The Honda SUV doesn’t offer rear one-touch windows and, while shoppers can access automatic headlamps and heated exterior mirrors, they’ll have to pay extra for these types of amenities.
