How do three-row SUVs from Honda and Toyota compare?

When you are getting a three-row SUV, you don’t just want to have room for a lot of passengers, you want to have room for all those passengers to stretch out and relax. That’s exactly what the Pilot provides at every trim level with 13 cubic-feet of extra passenger space. On top of that passenger space, the Pilot also provides more room for cargo with all the seats down than the Highlander can offer.

Honda reserves the best for its top trim level, and that’s why the Pilot Elite comes standard with all-wheel drive. Other lower trim levels of the Pilot offer front-wheel drive, if that’s what you truly want, but when you are looking at the top model, you expect the top features and options.

The Pilot Elite also rides in style. Not only is that due to the wonderful design of the Pilot, but it’s also because the Pilot Elite has large 20-inch aluminum alloy rims. The Highlander offers alloy wheels at its top Limited Platinum trim too, but they are smaller.
