This 2018 Honda Pilot is one of the most popular three-row SUV’s on sale in America. Fresh off of a recent redesign, it is a family-friendly hauler designed with convenience and efficiency in mind. Priced from $30,900, it has versatility in spades but is not the most stylish vehicle in its segment. It is positioned above the compact Honda C-RV in the brand’s lineup.
Pros: Thoughtfully Designed Interior, Roomy, Relatively Efficient
Cons: Safety Features Not Available On All Models, Bland Styling
Looks Best In: Black Forest Pearl exterior/Beige interior
What You Should Know: Shoppers looking for more convenience and cargo space should check out the Odyssey, Honda’s minivan. Those looking for a bit more style and opulence should check out the Acura MDX, the fancy twin of the Honda Pilot.
Coolest Feature: The panoramic roof, standard on the top-end Elite trim level, allows lots of natural light into the cavernous interior.
Competition: Toyota Highlander, Ford Explorer, Infiniti QX60
Summary: As far as large SUV’s go, the Honda Pilot is among the roomiest and most sensible. Pricing can quickly rise, but top-end trims are brimming with features.
Did You Know? The Pilot can seat up to 8 people if equipped with the middle row bench seat.
