The 2015 Toyota Highlander interior has improved in recent years, but when you compare it to other options the Metro Detroit area has available—including the 2015 Honda Pilot—we think that the updates aren’t quite so impressive. Keep reading to see how the Highlander and Pilot compare to each other.

Honda’s Spacious Interior

Not only does the 2015 Pilot’s interior feature modern soft touch materials to add another level of elegance, it also has more space than the Highlander:

  • The 2015 Pilot LX has 153.7 cubic feet of passenger space as well as a maximum of 87.0 cubic feet of cargo storage space.
  • The entry-level Highlander LE, on the other hand, has 145.0 cubic feet of passenger space and 83.7 cubic feet of cargo storage.

One of the things you’ll notice almost immediately in the Pilot is that its third row of seating is much more spacious than the majority of three-row SUVs, including the Highlander. The 2015 Pilot has more head, hip, and leg room in the third row than the 2015 Highlander, making it suitable for smaller members of the family and adults.

The Latest Standard Features

Each new Honda model comes with the latest in standard amenities without requiring any upgrades; that means that the entry-level Pilot LX comes with features you won’t find on other vehicles without upgrading. You can find all of the following on each Pilot standard:

  • Honda’s i-MID infotainment system with touchscreen interface
  • Bluetooth HandsFreeLink for phone and audio streaming
  • Pandora internet radio compatibility and SMS texting capabilities
  • Steering wheel-mounted controls for cruise, audio, and phone
  • Rearview camera with guidelines
