Large families with a lot of hauling responsibilities need more versatility than most while on the go. For most families, a three-row SUV is the answer with plenty of room for everyone to stretch out and cavernous amounts of space in back when rear seats are folded flat. Plus, most three-row SUV selections are stocked with family-friendly amenities like rear-seat entertainment systems and USB ports throughout the cabin to help everyone stay connected and engaged while on the road. Perfect for a family road trip.
Two big players in the three-row segment are the 2019 Toyota Highlander and the 2019 Honda Pilot. See what each model has to offer for larger families with busy schedules below.
No family would be complete without a generous helping of passive and active safety systems that help get the whole family home safe and the 2019 Highlander and 2019 Pilot both deliver. Check out each model’s standard safety active safety systems below.
