2019 Toyota Highlander vs 2019 Honda Pilot

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.
