Consumers get assistance finding the best vehicle models for 2013 Austin dealership offers up helpful SUV comparison

AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- As the 2013 model year gets closer to the finish line, consumers can often find quality year-end sales events. But while that may be true, they still need to know what vehicles are the best options for the year. In the SUV segment, Howdy Honda in Austin is offering up a helpful vehicle comparison.


When consumers narrow down the choices in the SUV segment, they often come down to deciding on either the Honda Pilot or Toyota Highlander. It makes sense, as both vehicles offer many of the same qualities in the segment. But, consumers will appreciate the slight differences between the two models.

When it comes to fuel efficiency, the Pilot and Highlander are virtually identical in the V6 versions, with the Pilot getting a slight edge in highway MPG. And while the Highlander has slightly more horsepower, the Pilot has more torque, making the two very close on performance as well.

One area that might tip the scales is passenger and cargo capacity. With three rows of seating, the Pilot can fit up to eight passengers comfortably, while the Highlander is only rated for seven. Similarly, the Pilot has more cargo space as well at 47.7 cubic feet, beating out the Highlander's 42.3 cubic feet of space. For families that need all the room they can get, this could be an important factor.

The professionals at Howdy Honda welcome consumers to the dealership to try out the new Honda Pilot in person. They are also available to talk to by calling 877-941-6513. The dealership can also be visited online at
