Since it seems that there are many that compare these two great SUVs, it is time to take a closer look at how they stand up one against the other. There are various things that can be said with one being preferred by a group of buyers while the other being popular for another group. We have 2 SUVs that are definitely interesting and going head to head brings in some interesting facts.
Pricing And Fuel Consumption
The 2014 Toyota Land Cruiser is obviously more expensive, with a difference in the price tag of around $30,000. That is definitely quite a lot, summing up to a monthly car payment of around $1,500 when buying new from most dealerships. Honda also brings in a manufacturer financing that starts at 0.9%.
When looking at fuel consumption, the 2014 Toyota Land Cruiser goes ahead of the 2014 Honda Pilot. We have a consumption of 13-18 city highway as opposed to 17-24 city highway. The engine is also stronger by around 130 hp. Both SUVs include automatic transmission with overdrive.
Both have dual zone automatic air conditioning and standard air filter included. Out of the similar standard options we can mention cargo concealed storage, cargo tie downs, compass, cruise control, programmable garage door opener, tachometer, water temp gauge, trip computer, low fuel warning, exterior temperature display, rear window defogger, retained accessory power and tilt-wheel adjustable steering column. The optional additions are not too great to make any SUV stand out.
When looking at the seats, they are both really interesting but Toyota stands out a little with extra lumbar support for the passengers and more space for the third row seats.
When analyzing entertainment, Toyota Land Cruiser 2014 once again stands out with better speakers, more CD player added, standard DVD-audio and Sirius XM.
Both SUVs shine when it comes to safety. We have all the necessary airbags and with an extra knee airbag in the Toyota Land Cruiser. We can say that Toyota shines a little ahead of Honda Pilot with extras like In-Vehicle assistance service and the fully automatic exterior light control.
We can clearly conclude that the 2014 Toyota Land Cruiser is better when compared to the 2014 Honda Pilot but this also means that it is much more expensive, with an ownership cost that is also higher. If you are looking to save some money, the Honda Pilot is the one to go for but if you have the cash available, we need to look at the Toyota Land Cruiser as the SUV to recommend.
