We get it. You love taking off and hitting the road after a long week at the office. So, you need a full-size SUV that's always ready for a getaway.

You need an SUV like the 2020 Honda Pilot or Toyota Highlander. The only question is, which one is going to be the best option for your Marlton, Mt. Laurel, or Cherry Hill, NJ, lifestyle?

The team at Burns Honda wants to help you decide, so we created this Pilot vs. Highlander comparison. Give it a read, then contact us to test drive your favorite.

Honda Pilot vs Toyota Highlander Interior Specs

Okay, so you're loading up for your next family vacation. Do you have all the space you need? With both the Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander, you'll get a 3-row SUV with enough seats for seven or eight passengers, depending on your trim level.

They also both provide more than 83 cubic feet of cargo volume with the rear seats folded down, which means you'll have plenty of room for bikes, tents, sleeping bags, and more.

Now, if you have a full car of passengers, those in the back may be more comfortable in the Honda Pilot, as you can see below:


Honda Pilot

Toyota Highlander

Passenger Volume

152.9 cubic feet

141.3 cubic feet

Third-Row Legroom

31.9 inches

27.7 inches

The Honda Pilot offers 11.6 cubic feet more passenger volume than the Toyota Highlander. We see this most clearly in the third row, where passengers in the Toyota only get 27.7 inches of legroom.

Compare this to the spacious 31.9 inches of third-row legroom in the Honda. That's a difference of 4.2 inches!

On-The-Go Entertainment in the Pilot & Highlander

When it's time to hit the road, you want to know that you'll be able to keep everyone entertained, including the kids in the back. The Pilot offers this to rear-seat passengers with its available Advanced Rear Entertainment System.

The Honda Advanced Rear Entertainment System places two 10.2-inch high-resolution screens in the rear of the first-row headrests. This lets back-seat passengers watch Blu-Ray™ discs or enjoy built-in streaming apps while on the go.

Unfortunately, the Highlander doesn't have a comparable system, so rear-seat passengers may be more inclined than those in the Pilot to ask, Are we there yet?

Still, both SUVs have ample ways to keep the driver informed and entertained. This includes an available touchscreen display in the center stack with available Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility. These systems allow you to access your favorite smartphone apps through your car's touchscreen display while your phone stays safely out of your hand.

Will You Drive the 2020 Honda Pilot or Toyota Highlander?

Now that you've seen how the Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander compare on the points of interior specs and entertainment systems, we hope that you have a better idea of which one you want to drive through Marlton, Mt. Laurel, and Cherry Hill, NJ.
