Interesting debate in which you have to split hairs.
Songwriting? I'll give it to Stevie cause he does it all--Elton had Bernie Taupin. As a team I'd give it to the Brits.
Music? I'd call it a draw. Personally I like Elton John better, but couldn't say he was objectively better. I love many Stevie Wonder songs too.
Pure piano skills? This is just my opinion but I've heard more EJ piano on live albums, etc, whereas SW's keyboards are always more in the mix instead of standing out (and he's on the synthesizer a lot too.) Giving it to EJ.
If I had to pick one to listen to on a desert island I'd have to go with EJ myself.
