2017 Pilot vs. 2017 Highlander
Anyone shopped a 2017 Pilot vs. the Highlander? Assuming you picked the Pilot if you are here, so how did you decide?
We have a 2006 Pilot. Love it, but would love to have some technology!! (you know, basics! backup cam, Bluetooth, etc).
Considering 2017 EX-L AWD with Sensing, or a 2017 Highlander XLE AWD. Pretty stuck on these 2 choices as we want the 3rd row for occasional use. We plan to do some light towing with pop-up tent. We have 2 children in booster seats.
The Highlander feels a bit smaller, but the newest models come standard with the "sensing" equivalent of the Pilot and 5,000 lb towing capacity. Both have similar mpg. Pilot has Apple Car Play, Toyota does not.
MSRP is pretty comparable, but Honda does not offer much in the way of promotions or incentives to buy. I know there is wiggle room in there, but Toyota frequently offers cash back and financing options.
Any suggestions? Pros? Cons? Feedback welcome!
