See How The 2019 Toyota Highlander Stacks Up Against The 2019 Honda Pilot

If you're in the market for a 3-row crossover SUV for the whole family but are unsure of whether the 2019 Toyota Highlander or the 2019 Honda Pilot is better, then you've come to the right place! Our car dealership in Columbus has done the research for you so you can decide for yourself.

Once you've read all the facts, you'll see why more drivers prefer the new 2019 Highlander over the Pilot. You can also stop by our Toyota dealership to test-drive it in person. We proudly serve drivers in Columbus, GA, LaGrange, GA and Auburn-Opelika, AL.

Performance and Fuel Efficiency

In terms of engines choices, we can see that both SUVs have a 3.5L V6. However, the 2019 Highlander's engine produces more power with 295 horsepower, while the 2019 Honda Pilot falls behind with only 280 horsepower. It also has slightly better torque at 263 lb-ft while the 2019 Pilot has only 262 lb-ft.

The 2019 Toyota Highlander also has better fuel economy than the 2019 Honda Pilot, with an EPA-estimated 21 MPG city and 27 MPG highway. The 2019 Pilot, on the other hand, only gets 19 MPG city.

The 2019 Highlander even saves fuel by using start and stop technology, which shuts the engine off while the vehicle is stopped. Once you're ready to start moving again, simply lift your foot off the brake and the engine effortlessly restarts. The Honda Pilot doesn't have this system to help save fuel.

If you want even better fuel efficiency, then the 2019 Highlander offers a hybrid model that comes equipped with a 3.5L V6 engine and produces 306 horsepower while getting an incredible 30 MPG city and 28 MPG highway. Once again, the Honda Pilot falls behind by not offering a hybrid model.

Toyota Safety Sense vs. Honda Sensing

The 2019 Highlander and the 2019 Honda Pilot both have similar active safety systems that keep your family safe while driving. Both have an adaptive cruise control system that helps your vehicle stay at a set distance from the vehicle in front of you which can help automatically speed up and slow down your vehicle to maintain a safe distance. They also have a lane departure warning with steering assist function and a pre-collision system that can automatically apply brakes to avoid a collision.

What makes the 2019 Highlander stand out is its Automatic High Beams. This safety system is designed to automatically switch between your low and high beams to allow for more visibility at night without distracting other drivers. It can automatically sense other vehicles headlights and taillights and can adjust accordingly. This allows the driver to be less concerned with switching back and forth between the two and may help them see obstacles before they become a problem.

It also is a 2019 IIHS Top Safety Pick award-winner and received a 5-Star Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Find the right Toyota in Columbus, GA for less now at your local Toyota dealer.

ToyotaCare With Your New 2019 Highlander

When you buy a new 2019 Highlander you also receive ToyotaCare no-cost maintenance with 24-hour roadside assistance. This plan covers all your regularly scheduled maintenance for 2 years or 25,000 miles. Some things that are covered include oil and filter changes, tire rotations, multi-point inspections, and fluid level adjustments and filling.

24-hour roadside assistance is also covered with ToyotaCare for 2 years from the date of its first use.
