2015 Toyota Highlander vs. 2016 Honda Pilot in Waco TX

 

 

Are you in the market for your next (or first) SUV? Greg May Honda has every option you can dream of, but first, we have to talk about your SUV options! Just like anything else, not all SUVs were created equal. For example, today we're comparing the 2015 Toyota Highlander and the 2016 Honda Pilot in Waco TX to find out which reigns top SUV!

The Highlander and the Pilot have similar safety features that include driver and passenger airbags, side-impact head airbags and four-wheel antilock breaks, just to name a few. However, the Pilot Touring/Elite has standard Parking Sensors to warn driver of obstacles that they might not immediately recognize, which makes it stand out in terms of safety.

In addition to more superior safety features, the Pilot also gets better fuel efficiency than the Highlander. The Pilot has an engine control system that shuts half of the engine's cylinders down to increase efficiency, and turns the engine off when you're stopped in traffic to save fuel and reduce pollution. The Highlander doesn't have this engine control system.

Whether you carpool on a regular basis, go on frequent extended trips or just want to be stress-free during the next move, the Honda Pilot is the crossover for you. It has 8 more cubic feet of passenger space than the Highlander does, so not only will your passengers be comfortable, but you can fit an entire additional person. And, with the second seat folded, the Pilot has 109 cubic feet of space while the Highlander only has 83.7 cubic feet. That's a 25.3 cubic foot difference, which could make the difference on whether or not you have to call your husband's brother's roommate to bring his truck to pick up your new furniture piece. Speaking of trucks, they aren't the only ones that can tow a large load. The Highlander can tow up to 1,500 pounds and the Pilot can tow a whopping 3,500!

Are you as blown away by the Honda Pilot in Waco as we are? If so, we invite you to see the 2016 Pilot in person at Greg May Honda and maybe even take it for a spin while you're here!

2016 Honda Fit vs. 2015 Jeep Compass in Waco TX

 

How do mid-size cars add up in the Waco area? Greg May Honda is here to find out! We love making sure our customers or potential customers get the best vehicle on the block, so we regularly compare similar vehicles so the car-buying process goes by more quickly. Today we are focusing on a couple of popular vehicles: the 2016 Honda Fit and the 2015 Jeep Compass in Waco TX. Which one will outperform the other?

For starters, its no secret that he 2016 Fit has much higher safety ratings. We're talking two whole stars better than the 2015 Compass! In the NHTSA 35 MPG front crash test, the Fit received a flawless 5-star rating while the Compass falls short with only 3 stars for both the driver and the passenger. In addition to those ratings, the IIHS rates the Fit as a "Top Pick" for 2015, while the Compass was not rated as a "Top Pick." Which vehicle would you want your loved ones riding in? We're going to guess the 2016 Fit.

With safety ratings compared, lets move onto fuel economy. The Fit gets 29 MPG in the city and 37 on the highway*. The Compass, you ask? It gets only 23 MPG in the city and 30 on the highway*. The Compass' highway fuel economy is almost equal to the Fit's city fuel economy! Gasoline is no inexpensive resource, so you'll be saving money and the environment by going with the 2016 Honda Fit.

Now, let's talk about the fun stuff: features. The Fit has a telescoping steering wheel for optimum driver comfort, and the Compass doesn't offer this. Meanwhile, if you go with the Fit, you'll have standard smartphone integration, standard automatic headlights, standard Smart Entry System (on EX/EX-L) and Bluetooth wireless. If you go with the Compass, unfortunately you'll receive none of these top-of-the-line features. 

After that comparison, it's apparent that the 2016 Honda Fit beats out the 2015 Jeep Compass in Waco TX in several ways! Interested in seeing it in person? Stop by our Greg May Honda store or check out your Fit options online!
