2016 Toyota Highlander vs. 2016 Honda Pilot
Midsize SUVs: They're equally as effective for rugged off-roaders and extreme sports enthusiasts as they are for families both large and small. They provide power, space for all your items and room for everyone to feel at ease. And two prime examples of this vehicle class are the 2016 Toyota Highlander and the 2016 Honda Pilot. The first thing you'll notice about the 2016 Toyota Highlander is how smooth its design is: The SUV class may have started out bulkier-looking back in the day, but the Highlander's exterior is near-perfection, with a crisp sloped roof that leads gracefully into rounded rear accents. The 2016 Pilot is more jagged and square than the Highlander, which is a more outmoded design look.
Both vehicles have plenty of room for your items with cargo room that exceeds 83 cubic feet, but only the 2016 Highlander has the temerity to tow 5,000 pounds in both FWD and AWD models, while the 2016 Pilot lags behind with only its AWD models able to haul 5,000 pounds and its FWD models left in the dust with 3,500 pounds maximum.

And take your family along with you, thanks to the Toyota Star Safety System that includes Traction Control and Brake Assist to keep you safe. The 2016 Honda Pilot also has the ability to go off-road with AWD models, and was named one of the Kelley Blue Book KBB.com 16 Best Family Cars of 2016 just like the 2016 Toyota Highlander, but doesn't have the pedigree that also comes with making the U.S. News and World Report 2015 Best Cars for Families list - that honor is the Highlander's alone.
