Interior Comparison

When you’re looking for a three-row crossover, it’s important to consider both the spaciousness of the vehicle as well as the features it offers. While the 2021 Pilot may offer great space, it lacks many features that the Highlander offers, and its lower trims pale in comparison to the features of the Highlander’s base trims. The Highlander is plenty spacious, keeping up with its competitor in each measurement, and it offers more overall cargo space, which is important for a family. While the Highlander comes standard with Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto, Wi-Fi, and more, these features are only available in upper trims of the Pilot.

Road Performance

Though the 2021 Toyota Highlander and the 2021 Honda Pilot both run on V6 engines, you’ll see that there is a marked difference in their outputs and performances. While the 2021 Highlander blows it out of the water with 295 horsepower and 263 pound-feet of torque, the 2021 Pilot only manages 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. The 2021 Highlander also gets better fuel efficiency and offers a hybrid powertrain where the 2021 Pilot does not.

Safety Features

Toyota and Honda were among the first mainstream automakers to ensure that driver assistance features came standard in most cars, so both the 2021 Highlander and the 2021 Pilot come standard with driver assistance technologies. The 2021 Highlander’s standard offerings include pre-collision warning, an automatic emergency braking system, cyclist detection, pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, automatic high-beam headlights, road sign recognition, lane departure alert, and lane trace assist.

In comparison the 2021 Pilot’s standard technologies include automatic high-beam headlights, forward collision warning, collision mitigation braking, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, road departure mitigation, and adaptive cruise control.
