Honda Pilot vs Toyota Highlander


2016 Honda Pilot versus 2016 Toyota Highlander

A midsize SUV, especially in Colorado, is the ideal vehicle for an active family or those needing more passenger room than a sedan can provide. The 2016 Honda Pilot has slightly more interior and cargo space than the Toyota Highlander, better fuel efficiency and a more powerful engine. Both the Honda Pilot and the Toyota Highlander have earned the IIHS 2016 Top Safety Pick+ Award but the Pilot's handling and performance are far superior to that of the Highlander.


The 2016 Honda Pilot's sleek styling and sophisticated interior are accentuated by the latest in safety and connectivity technology (1). The CVT or continuous variable transmission makes for smooth acceleration as well as improves fuel efficiency. ACE Body Structure is a Honda-exclusive body design that utilizes a network of connected structural elements to distribute frontal crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle. This helps reduce the force transferred to the cabin and more evenly disperse the forces transferred to other vehicles involved. The 2016 Honda Pilot has earned the IIHS 2016 Top Safety Pick+ Award*
