While both the used Toyota Highlander and the used Honda Pilot offer reliability and fuel efficiency, these midsize SUVs each boast unique features. If you’re planning to buy or lease a used Highlander or Pilot, here’s what you need to know about these rival rides.

How Does the Used Toyota Highlander Stack Up Against the Honda Pilot?

Used Toyota Highlander and Honda Pilot models are fairly similar when it comes to fuel economy, acceleration, ride comfort and noise isolation. Where these two

SUVs greatly differ is in their dimensions. The Honda Pilot is notably larger, making it ideal for those who prefer utility above all else.

However, the used Toyota Highlander offers an accommodating interior and more responsive handling compared to the Pilot. The Highlander also provides a full range of features at a lower price tag, making it a great choice for bargain shoppers. Its garage-friendly size and easy-to-navigate infotainment system place it a step above the Pilot, whose overly complicated, slow-moving touchscreen and minivan-like size are notable disadvantages.
