The Grand Highlander Bests the Honda Pilot at Every Turn

Toyota Grand Highlander takes pride in its name as it escorts you to the next destination. Featuring enough space for eight passengers, as well as all of the luxury amenities that you can ask for, this SUV simply can't be stopped. At Toyota of Tampa Bay, we feature a wide variety of new Toyota models for you to explore, and we welcome you to test drive your favorite one. From our exclusive benefits to our renowned customer service, there’s no reason to go to any other dealer.

We're so confident that the 2024 Grand Highlander is the right choice for you and your lifestyle that we're putting it up against the 2024 Honda Pilot: one of its toughest competitors. Let's take a look at how these two SUVs stack up against one another, and find out why the 2024 Toyota Grand Highlander belongs in your driveway.

Enjoy Grand Accommodations

The 2024 Toyota Grand Highlander offers sophisticated styling at every turn. Up front you'll find a confident nose that embodies sleek LED headlights, a brushed aluminum front grill, and sporty styling. This SUV is nearly identical to the Toyota Highlander, except its body has been elongated to offer more commanding proportions.

Inside, you're treated to world first-class features. With seating for up to eight passengers, the 2024 Toyota Grand Highlander welcomes everyone to come along for the ride. SofTex® seats come standard throughout the cabin and imitate the premium look and ambiance of leather without any of the upkeep. Heated front seats come standard, as does a 10-way power driver seat to help you find the perfect driving position. Three-zone automatic climate control comes standard and works to keep the entire cabin comfortable no matter the weather outside. Second-row passengers enjoy standard window shades, while third row seats are large enough for adults to ride comfortably.

Fold down the rear seats, and you'll unlock 97.5 cubic feet of cargo space.

Move over to the 2024 Honda Pilot and you'll find that this SUV doesn't even compare to the Grand Highlander. Cloth seats come standard, as does three zone automatic climate control, but the similarities stop there. The Pilot fails to offer features like rear sun shades, heated front seats, and a purposeful rear window to maximize rear passenger comfort.

Unlike the Grand Highlander, the Honda Pilot is not as generous with cargo space. Fold down the rear seats of the Pilot, and you'll find that only 87 cubic feet of cargo space awaits – which is more than 10 cubic feet less than the Grand Highlander.

More Torque and Better Fuel Economy? The Grand Highlander Wins Again

The 2024 Toyota Grand Highlander uses a 2.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that generates a robust 265 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. Mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, power is sent to the front wheels and allows this eight-passenger SUV to return an EPA estimated 28 MPG on the highway.

The 2024 Honda Pilot is powered by a standard 3.5-liter naturally aspirated V6 engine that generates 285 horsepower and 262 torque. Mated it to a 10-speed automatic, transmission power is sent to the front wheels. Generating less torque than the Grand Highlander, the Honda Pilot also returns less efficient fuel economy. Only achieving an EPA estimated 27 MPG on the highway, the Grand Highlander once again beats the Honda Pilot.

The Grand Highlander Offers Superior Technology

Toyota Grand Highlander offers immersive connection thanks to a standard 12.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Featuring wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto, all of your favorite smartphone interactions are available directly on the massive touchscreen display. The standard seven-inch digital gauge cluster feeds you all of your most important vitals in a customizable display so you never have to search for the information that you need.

Hop inside the 2024 Honda Pilot and once again, you're in for a less than thrilling experience. A digital gauge cluster is not standard, nor is an expansive touchscreen display. Instead, you'll have to settle for analog gauges, as well as a small, seven-inch touchscreen display that features Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto capabilities.

Robust Safety Awaits in the Grand Highlander

The 2024 Toyota Grand Highlander uses the latest version of Toyota Safety Sense 3.0. Employing advanced features like automatic emergency braking, full speed adaptive cruise control, and lane departure warning with steering assist, you'll always have assurance behind the wheel. Not stopping there, the Grand Highlander comes standard with Automatic High Beams, and even Lane Tracing Assist to help you stay centered in your lane. The newly added Proactive Driving Assist provides an extra measure of safety and can automatically slow you to safely tackle curves and provide steering assistance to avoid other vehicles,

While the Honda features its own safety suite, its features seriously fall short of the Toyota Grand Highlander. While it does feature protections like automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assistance, and automatic high beams, it fails to offer the comprehensive protection that you'll find in the grand Highlander. If you're looking for safety, the easy choice is the Toyota.
