Give Your Family the Best: Compare the 2019 Honda Pilot to the New Toyota Highlander

If your growing family is finding it too tough to squeeze into your current compact and you're looking to upgrade to something a little larger (but aren't ready to go the minivan route just yet), a new three-row SUV could be a great fit. This segment is immensely popular with smaller, more active families who only occasionally need room for six, seven, or even eight passengers and still want the capability and convenience of an SUV.

The 2019 Honda Pilot is a satisfying, fun-to-drive option for just about any lifestyle, but is well-suited for families. The 2018 Toyota Highlander is one of the Pilot's number-one competitors, and this year's rivalry is stronger than ever. Both offer AWD, a lot of great features, and can seat up to eight--but which one will be right for your family?
