The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Honda Pilot is one of the most practical and family-friendly vehicles in its segment, despite its boxy, truck-like appearance. The 2015 Toyota Highlander offers a versatile and stylish alternative to the minivan, with available all-wheel drive and a thoughtfully designed interior.
