How Can You Choose?

As you can see, both the 2019 Honda Pilot and the 2019 Toyota Highlander give you plenty of features. The Highlander adds an extra trim level to choose from. However, this doesn’t mean the race has been won. In fact, with fewer trim levels, the Honda Pilot manages to pack a variety of features into each trim. This not only gives you better options to choose from, it ensures that no matter which trim level you choose, you’ll receive all the features you want and more. That’s why we recommend the 2019 Honda Pilot!
