Three-Row SUV Comparison: 2022 Honda Pilot Vs. 2022 Toyota Highlander

Comparing the Current Editions of Two Popular Mid-Size Family SUVs

If you're a Florida family searching for a roomy and refined new vehicle that offers three rows of seating, you'll want to look closely at the 2022 Honda Pilot. Honda's largest vehicle in its award-winning SUV lineup comes with seating for up to eight and a premium cabin that treats every passenger to a comfortable journey. This modern family SUV continues to be a hit with motorists across the country due to its standard V6 performance, advanced cabin and safety technologies and refined ride.

Going up against the Pilot is Toyota's Highlander, another three-row, mid-size SUV that offers similar features and pricing. Here, we'll compare the 2022 Honda Pilot against the 2022 Toyota Highlander so that SUV shoppers can see where these two popular options differ.

Starting Price & Overall Value

The 2022 Honda Pilot SUV starts at an MSRP of just $38,080* with the well-equipped Sport trim, making it an attractive option for many families. The 2022 Toyota Highlander starts at $35,855 MSRP, but the price doesn't tell the full story.

Honda's new Pilot SUV comes loaded even in the Sport trim with an array of amenities you won't find on the Toyota Highlander L base model.

Some of the 2022 Honda Pilot Sport's features not found on the 2022 Toyota Highlander L include a convenient capless fuel filler and Honda's famed Multi-Angle Rearview Camera that provides three viewing modes while in reverse gear. Innovative features like these make the 2022 Pilot a Honda and a popular choice among mid-size-row SUV shoppers!

Family-Friendly Features

As Honda's dedicated three-row family SUV, the 2022 Pilot comes standard-equipped with thoughtful amenities like rear privacy glass and seating for up to eight. Plus, there is a generous 152.9 cubic feet of total passenger volume.

Available features that elevate this Honda family-hauler include the Advanced Rear Entertainment System with a 10.2-inch display for movie watching, plus integrated second-row sunshades. An available wireless phone charger and 590-Watt Premium Audio System round out this complete package. This Honda is one high-tech ride!

Both the 2022 Honda Pilot and the 2022 Toyota Highlander offer 7- or 8-passenger seating configurations, including available second-row captain's chairs. These family SUVs also feature standard driver-assistive technologies like adaptive cruise control, a pre-collision braking system and automatic high beam headlights across each trim level.

Passenger Space & Comfort

When it comes to three-row family vehicles, seating capacity doesn't tell you the full story. For instance, even though both of these mid-size SUVs offer seating for up to eight occupants in three rows, one of them is far roomier.

The 2022 Honda Pilot features an exceptional 152.9 cubic feet of space for its passengers. In Toyota's 2022 Highlander, passengers get just 141.3 cubic feet of space. If you tour both of these models with your family, you are all sure to find that each row of the Honda Pilot feels more spacious and relaxing than the cramped quarters of the 2022 Toyota Highlander!

Standard Performance

Venice, FL, area motorists looking to upgrade to a capable new three-row SUV at an affordable price will find that the 2022 Honda Pilot Sport base trim offers stellar performance. Every version of the new Pilot comes equipped with a 280-hp direct-injected, i-VTEC® V6 engine, allowing this spacious SUV to tow up to 3,500 pounds with two-wheel drive (2WD) or 5,000 pounds when equipped with all-wheel drive (AWD).

Toyota's Highlander has finally done away with the previously standard inline 4-cylinder engine, which simply didn't have enough power to move this large crossover with much confidence. The 2022 Highlander's standard V6 engine generates similar horsepower and torque figures to the Honda Pilot. However, the Toyota weighs more than the Honda: each edition of the Highlander tips the scales at around 100 pounds heavier than a comparable Pilot.

Thanks to its powerful and robust V6 engine and lower curb weight, the 2022 Honda Pilot is a smart option when you're after a responsive and capable new mid-size SUV.
