2017 Toyota Highlander vs. 2017 Honda Pilot

Here at Serra Toyota of Decatur, we know that many Huntsville, AL drivers are often looking for a compromise when it comes to finding the perfect new Toyota model. Some models provide plenty of space and power but little performance, and there are vehicles that offer strong performance but at the expense of being cramped. That’s why we were so happy to hear about the all-new 2017 Toyota Highlander and how it stacks up against its competitors like the 2017 Honda Pilot.

Our Toyota dealership is proud to feature the 2017 Toyota Highlander, a great model that provides great family-oriented driving beneath its rugged exterior. Under the hood, the 2017 Toyota Highlander can be equipped with a V-4 or V-8 engine and is also available as a hybrid vehicle. (The 2017 Highlander is available in SE, LE, LE Plus, XLE, Limited, and Limited Platinum trims, while the 2017 Highlander Hybrid is available in LE and XLE trims). Integrating the Toyota Ensure entertainment system, the 2017 Toyota Highlander provides for AM/FM radio and CD playing, coordinated through a 6.1-inch touchscreen, with an auxiliary input jack, Bluetooth phone connectivity, and music streaming.  When it comes to safety, the 2017 Toyota Highlander comes equipped with the Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS) system, including automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and a pedestrian pre-collision system. With a quiet, calm drive and a refined, attractive cabin, the 2017 Toyota Highlander provides an exceptional experience for those seeking a crossover vehicle.

One of the first things you’ll notice about the 2017 Honda Pilot is that it has a smoother body, unlike the more aggressive exterior of the 2017 Toyota Highlander. Equipped with only a V-6 engine, the 2017 Honda Pilot comes with front-wheel drive. Like the 2017 Toyota Highlander, the Honda Pilot also integrates great technology like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, allowing drivers to integrate their smartphone. Safety is also at the forefront of the 2017 Honda Pilot, integrating features like blind-spot monitors, a multi-rearview camera, and automatic emergency braking.

However, there are many areas where the 2017 Toyota Highlander has strong advantages over the 2017 Honda Pilot. As a slightly smaller, more maneuverable crossover, the 2017 Toyota Highlander can more easily fit into any garage or parking venue. Although the 2017 Honda Pilot allows you to integrate your smartphone, the 2017 Toyota Highlander uses the Ensure system which provides a more diverse array of driver-friendly technology. Finally, the 2017 Toyota Highlander contains more standard safety features than the 2017 Honda Pilot. If you are looking for a great crossover vehicle, the 2017 Toyota Highlander definitely deserves your attention.

There are a lot of reasons why our Toyota dealership thinks Huntsville, AL drivers will like the 2017 Toyota Highlander much more than its competitors. But you don’t have to take our word for it – stop by Serra Toyota of Decatur, located at 309 Beltline Pl, and check it out for yourself!  With its integration of technology and performance, we think the 2017 Toyota Highlander will be an ideal drive for you and your family.
