If you are shopping for a new family SUV in the Branford area, you have likely narrowed down your search to either the 2020 Honda Pilot or the 2020 Toyota Highlander. While both come well equipped with standard safety and connectivity features, there are differences in cargo and passenger space, as well as in their respective MSRPs that you should take a look at. Find out which is the better choice for you in this Honda Pilot vs. Toyota Highlander comparison from Westbrook Honda.

Pilot or Highlander: Starting MSRP

The first thing that most New London drivers will want to know is “How much is a new SUV going to cost?” It’s a valid question, and as you’ll see below, the Pilot starts at a price point that is $2,950 less than the Toyota Highlander:

 

  • 2020 Honda PIlot LX Starting MSRP: $31,650*
  • 2020 Toyota Highlander Starting MSRP: $34,600

 

Pilot or Highlander: Performance & Fuel-Efficiency

The Highlander holds a very slight edge over the Pilot when you compare performance capabilities and fuel economy ratings. But when you factor in the lower sticker price of the Honda, you’ll still come out ahead:

 

  • Honda Pilot: All 2020 Honda Pilot trims are equipped with a 3.5L V6 engine that delivers 280-hp with 262 lb-ft of torque. The entry-level Honda Pilot LX 2WD with 6-speed automatic transmission earns an EPA-estimated 19 mpg city** and 27 mpg highway**. The Pilot can also provide a maximum towing capacity 5,000 pounds.

 

  • Toyota Highlander: The 2020 Toyota Highlander has a standard 3.5L V6 that provides an output of 290-hp with 263 lb-ft of torque. The FWD Highlander has an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 21 mpg city and 29 mpg highway rating from the EPA, and can also tow up to 5,000 pounds.

 

Pilot or Highlander: Interior Space

With either the Pilot or Highlander, you’ll have three rows of seating that can accommodate up to eight passengers. But the Pilot interior offers more room for everyone to ride in comfort with 152.9 cubic feet of passenger volume, while the Toyota SUV provides only 141.3 cubic feet of space for your passengers. The Pilot also offers a greater cargo capacity, which means that New Haven drivers will be able to haul more groceries, sports equipment, or camping gear:

 

Honda Pilot Cargo Capacity

  • Behind the third row: 16.5 cubic feet
  • Maximum cargo space: 109.0 cubic feet

 

Toyota Highlander Cargo Capacity

  • Behind the third row: 16.0 cubic feet
  • Maximum cargo space: 84.3 cubic feet
