Highlander vs. Pilot: Which 3-Row Midsize SUV Is Right for You?
The 2017 Honda Pilot and 2017 Toyota Highlander are similar in many ways. They’re both 3-row midsize SUVs, and only $35 separates their base pricing. The Pilot was completely redesigned for 2016 and remains mostly unchanged for 2017. The refreshed Highlander got a brand-new V6 engine and transmission for 2017.
The midsize SUV category is teeming with worthy competition, but the Pilot and the Highlander both tend to stay near the top of the list. The Pilot was the winner of the 2017 U.S. News Best 3-Row SUV for Families award and a finalist for the Best 3-Row SUV for the Money award. Not surprisingly, the Highlander was a finalist for both awards as well. Critics were enamored with both vehicles, granting them ratings that stand at the top of the pack.
