2019 Honda Pilot vs 2018 Toyota Highlander near Wall, NJ

Convenient Technology Inside the 2019 PilotPictured right is the 2019 Honda Pilot Elite in Lunar Silver Metallic.

2019 Honda Pilot vs 2018 Toyota Highlander near Wall, NJ

Searching for a midsize SUV with plenty of space for people and cargo, updated technology, and as much power as you can handle? At Coast Honda, we believe that the 2019 Honda Pilot fits the bill! You can try one out for yourself by visiting our showroom during our convenient hours, but in the meantime, we’ve put the Pilot head-to-head against the 2018 Toyota Highlander to demonstrate why the Pilot is the wiser choice. Let the battle commence!

Performance

Performance is everything in a vehicle, so we’ll get things started by comparing what these two SUVs have to offer beneath their hoods. In one corner, we have the 2019 Pilot and its standard 3.5L V6 powertrain that exudes a confident 280-hp and 262 lb.-ft. of torque. In the opposite corner, however, the 2018 Toyota Highlander comes with just a 2.7L 4-cylinder engine as standard, which manages to produce only 185-hp and 184 lb.-ft. or torque, putting it well behind the SUV from Honda. In order to acquire the type of muscle possessed by the Pilot at all trim levels, you’ll have to upgrade in Highlander, costing you more money in the long run. Plus, the Toyota can only be equipped with an available 8-speed automatic transmission while the Pilot can come with an optional 9-speed for superior responsiveness.

Capacity

Whether you’re traveling with a vehicle full of friends and family or you’re taking hiking gear out to Allaire State Park, you need an SUV with considerable storage capacity. If you choose to take home the 2019 Honda Pilot, you’ll be well taken care of, thanks to its maximum storage area1 of 109.0  cubic ft. when the second- and third-row seats are folded flat. In comparison, the 2018 Highlander can only offer up 83.7 cubic ft. of cargo space2, meaning that some items just won’t be able to fit. On the flip side, when you’re hauling people instead, the Pilot still excels, as the third-row passengers will be able to enjoy a generous 31.9 inches of legroom. With merely 27.7 inches supplied for the same dimension in the Highlander, passengers might feel a bit cramped.

Technology

As a 21st-century driver, you no doubt require the most recent advancements to get the most out of your time on the road. In the Honda Pilot, you’ll experience exactly this, as you have the option to equip your vehicle with a mobile hotspot3 or a wireless phone charger4 for the utmost in convenience when you’re out for a drive. There’s no question that your passengers will love being able to stay connected, while you’ll enjoy leaving the cords at home and never having to worry about being stranded with a dead device again. Unfortunately, if you decide to take home the Toyota Highlander, you won’t find either of these features at any trim level.

We think you’ll agree with us that between the 2019 Honda Pilot vs 2018 Toyota Highlander near Wall, NJ, the Pilot ended up coming out on top. If you’d like to put it through its paces, come visit Coast Honda for a test drive. Our expert staff members are eagerly awaiting your visit!

I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with my experience in getting My mother in laws leased car turned over to a finance at this week. I worked with Chris Voigt and Mike in finance and they were so helpful in a bad situation that my mother in law caused. She was going to trade in her leased Accord for a new one but never did a test drive. When she went to take delivery she was so uncomfortable with the new car she panicked and could not drive it. She is 86 yrs old and can not adjust well to change or make decisions easily. They were so patient helped her keep her existing car by getting it financed through Honda. I would highly recommend your dealership to friends and family and want to make sure your staff is recognized for the great job they did.

Fantastic Experience!

Everyone at Coast Honda was extremely friendly and very helpful-especially Jeff! I'm thrilled with my new Certified Pre-owned purchase, and I'm confident I got the best deal out there! Very low pressure atmosphere which I particularly liked. I would definitely recommend buying a vehicle here, and will probably buy my next one here too...

A few years ago I had a great experience at Coast Honda and I just had another one. When I purchased my car, Dennis was very helpful but also gave me plenty of time to think without putting pressure on me. His approach is why I bought the car from this dealership. Fast forward a few years, and my car had a problem shortly after the warranty expired. Coast Honda looked at my car the same day, even though they had no appointments. They also helped me with the cost of repairs. Really above and beyond service by John K. and Nick. Thank you!

I can not say enough about this place. They are the BEST. Robin and Liz gave me a super fair price immediately in an email. Other dealers refused to even come close and toms river told me, in a very arrogant way, that there was no way I would get the car for what coast offered and let me walk out the door. Well, I got even better, so they were sooo wrong. I saved a lot of money. Dennis was our salesman, and honestly was so nice ...but I barely spent any time with him because this deal was so easy and so quick. Seriously, don't bother going anywhere else.

Excellent experience!

This is our third Honda lease with this dealership and this third time was the easiest by far! We are so happy with the new car and working with Jack made what can be a grueling and exhausting process so much better. When we got there, the car was ready and waiting for us. Jack is so professional and helpful. We will definitely be going back to Coast Honda for our next lease in three years!

From the initial contact with Liz Mendum the Internet Sales Manager, the test drive and explanation of the vehicle with Jack Gailing, to the finalization of the purchase with Mike Campbell it was a very positive experience. I was treated fairly and the prices were better than the other dealers that contacted me. i would recommend this dealership.

We just purchased our Honda CR-V EXL at Coast Honda in Sea Girt last week. This is the second time we have purchased a Honda from Coast and both times were met with terrific salesman who were courteous and professional. Last week we came to Coast after having a discouraging experience at Kay Honda in Eatontown, N.J. As soon as we arrived at Coast, we met with Pat Marotta who made our experience delightful. Pat was extremely familiar with the model we were interested in and made the process a pleasure. Pat was honest, personable and very professional throughout. We would recommend Pat to any of our friends considering a new car purchase. We love our new Honda and appreciate the experience at Coast. Thank you Pat Marotta!!!

I recently purchased a Honda Accord from Coast Honda. Over the last 40 years I have purchased several cars, but this by far was my best experience. The sales associate I dealt with was Jack Gailing. He was personable, knowledgeable and attentive to all of my needs. A true purchasing pleasure.

I'll make this review short and simple, just like my experience with Coast Honda of Sea Girt. In all of my years buying cars, I must say that this was the most pleasurable and convenient transaction I've ever encountered! I literally picked out my car online, received an email quote, spoke with Robin Hines on the phone for about 25 minutes, and wahlah, I bought a brand new HONDA CIVIC COUPE! The next business day I walked in, signed the paperwork and left the dealership within a half hour in my brand new Civic! EASY PEASY! I absolutely LOVE it & I know I received the CHEAPEST PRICE out of all other dealers in south jersey without having to go through the hassle of haggling back & forth hoping that you're not getting ripped off. ....BUT NO WORRIES HERE! I would highly recommend Robin Hines, Jack Gailing, Liz Mendum, & the rest of the gang over at Coast Honda to anyone in the market for a new Honda. THEY'VE EARNED MY BUSINESS AND TRUST & GAINED A LOYAL CUSTOMER. ....THANK YOU SO MUCH! BLESSINGS TO ALL! Andrea, Toms River, NJ

I had the best experience with Coast Honda. Starting with John Wilk then to Jack Gailing, finishing off with Mike Campbell. It was the smoothest car transaction I have ever had. John explained my options thoroughly and honestly. Jack, as they say is a Jack of all trades...he was picking the colors, test driving, writing up the paperwork etc. for my next stop with Mike. The dept that Mike works in is my most dreaded dept. It was so smooth and friendly. Professional and honest real people. Larry Iannaccone hired the best! From start to finish, which includes test driving, going back and forth on colors and bathroom break...2 1/2 hours. Now that is service. I love my Honda and will be back. Thank You! ~Carrie
