Car and Driver thinks the Honda Pilot has exactly what it takes to win over parents.  This highly-capable, three-row crossover is a spacious, family friendly model that inspires confidence in both its handling and its generous array of safety features.

Thanks to a high seating position, abundant space and a kid-friendly interior, the Honda Pilot works hard to win over families of all sizes.  Inside, the versatile interior allows for numerous configurations, allowing for all sorts of flexibility for carrying people, cargo and a combination of the two.  It offers all that a minivan offers without being a minivan.  Three rows afford room for all shapes and sizes of families.

The 3.5-liter V6 is an eager performer, offering exceptional acceleration and a nimble driving character to a large vehicle.  Best of all, this performance does not come at a sacrifice of efficiency – the fuel efficiency climbs to the top of its class, with EPA estimates of 26/22/19MPG Highway/Combined/City, making the Honda Pilot an efficiency benchmark for such a practical vehicle.

Cargo capacity is exceptional. “No matter the seating setup, the Pilot is among the roomiest SUVs in its class. The seven-seat Pilot Elite we tested had a pair of captain’s chairs in the second row; all other trim levels have a three-seat second-row bench”, says Car and Driver.

For safety, the Honda Pilot is also a class leader with stellar crash test results including a five-star rating from the NHTSA and Top Safety Pick from IIHS.  It inspires confidence with its comprehensive array of active safety features including Honda Sensing (not available on the LX trim).  The Honda Sensing suite includes adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warning, lane-departure warning, and several other systems.

“If a stylish, useful, and trouble-free ride is what you’re after, well—ladies and gentlemen, this is your Pilot speaking”, says Car and Driver. “The all-wheel-drive system offers torque vectoring for better handling and modes for snow, sand, and mud. The Pilot’s three rows provide plenty of room for all and a host of active-safety tech is available to keep everyone safe”.
