2020 Honda Pilot vs 2020 Toyota 4Runner

Serving Chattanooga, TN

While exploring midsize SUVs that offer three rows of seating, you may quickly narrow down the possibilities for your next purchase to the 2020 Honda Pilot and the 2020 Toyota 4Runner. The Pilot has been a popular vehicle for many SUV shoppers for almost two decades. You must take a closer look to determine where the real value lies between the 2020 Honda Pilot and 2020 Toyota 4Runner.


The Honda Pilot boasts a modern, capable look that makes it immediately appealing. Its chrome grille sits over a protruding, athletic lower fascia, and the grille rolls easily into triangular, multi-elemental LED headlights. From black lower-body molding to integrated roof rails, power side mirrors, and a hands-free liftgate, the Pilot is designed with both style and functionality in mind. The exterior design of the Toyota 4Runner is dramatically different. It sits in a generation that launched in 2009. While it has received a few updates since that time, it continues to have a boxy profile that it is known for. Its shape is enhanced by substantial ground clearance with a looming grille and front fascia. Roof rails span across the back half of the roof, and a liftgate spoiler has been added to the rear.


The 2020 Honda Pilot is a functional, spacious SUV that delivers pampering comfort features and technologies to the driver and passengers. Heated and ventilated front seats, captain’s chairs in the second row, and a power-folding feature for access to the third row are available. The Pilot also gives you leather material, a single-touch power moonroof, a digital display screen for the driver’s gauges, a touch display screen for the audio system, smart device integration, and other gear. Inside the 2020 Toyota 4Runner, you could take advantage of Apple CarPlay, power-adjusting front seats, a power moonroof, a push-button starter, rotary controls for the manual climate control system and other items.


These two SUVs carry a long line of advanced safety features, but these features vary. All of the Honda Pilot trims for 2020 are outfitted with Honda Sensing® technologies as standard features. Features included in this suite are adaptive cruise control, collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, lane keep assistance, and many other items. These advanced features are balanced with additional passive and active features. In the 4Runner for 2020, your SUV may be equipped with items like auto high beams, stability control, airbags, side-impact door beams, a tire pressure monitor, and others.
