2022 Honda Pilot vs 2022 Toyota Highlander
2022 Honda Pilot vs. 2022 Toyota HighlanderThe Honda Pilot is back for the 2022 model year, and we at Fairway Honda couldn't be more excited to include this new SUV in our star-studded new inventory. The 2022 Pilot boasts plenty of pep, cabin space, and standard features for an engaging and versatile experience, and we've taken the opportunity to compare it to a returning rival in the 2022 Toyota Highlander. If you're based in our home of Corner Brook or the neighbouring Hampton, Codroy, or St. Anthony, Newfoundland, find out how our new Pilot measures up against the latest Highlander in our detailed 2022 Honda Pilot review below before visiting us to see it up close.
On the inside, the 2022 Honda Pilot is among the roomiest SUVs in its class, offering plenty of space for both cargo and three rows of passengers. The Pilot's dash layout is just as practical, with its clean design offering easy access to all your climate and infotainment controls. Available comforts include heated front and second-row seats, a heated leather steering wheel, ventilated front seats, and a 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat with lumbar support that comes in handy on longer drives. The 2022 Toyota Highlander, by comparison, boasts improved interior materials over the outgoing model, but its centre stack is cluttered and its storage space behind the third row is rather limited.
Between its sculpted hood, muscular bodywork, and bold front end, the 2022 Honda Pilot turns heads no matter where its wheels take you. Speaking of wheels, you can treat your new Pilot to a sleek 20-inch aluminum-alloy set, while LED lighting, a new front fascia, and silver grille combine to give this 2022 Honda SUV a stylish front end. Roof rails offer an added transport solution for those who love outdoor adventures, while an available power-liftgate comes with hands-free access to make easy work of accessing your cargo hold when your hands are full. As for the new Highlander, this Toyota SUV's looks are clean and understated, but perhaps a little too understated, as its exterior flirts with anonymity and any personal touches of style come at a premium.
Safety FeaturesBoth these SUVs offer a generous suite of safety technology, but the 2022 Honda Pilot's lineup of driver-assist functions is as extensive as they come. Automatic high beams and blind-spot display come standard, as do a Forward Collision Warning system and automatic emergency braking to help you avoid or minimize the potential impact of frontal collisions. Adaptive Cruise Control is also included in the 2022 Pilot's safety suite, while Lane Departure Warning and a Lane Keeping Assist System both do their part to help you stay in optimal position when braving a bustling highway.
PerformanceThe 2022 Honda Pilot's formidable performance begins with a robust 3.5-litre V6 engine packing a solid 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. This peppy motor pairs with a smooth nine-speed automatic transmission, while an Intelligent Traction Management System and Intelligent Variable Torque Management AWD system combine to give the 2022 Pilot a surefooted ride, no matter your driving conditions. This Honda SUV also offers light steering that makes it easy to maneuver at lower speeds and maintains its smooth ride when its three rows and cargo area are full. Those used to tackling demanding jobs will also be thrilled to know the new Honda Pilot can tow up to 5,000 pounds. As for its rival, the 2022 Toyota Highlander's reviews have praised its robust V6 engine, but they've also knocked its lackluster driving dynamics, making this SUV little more than a safe choice for chauffeuring the kids around town.
