More About the Pilot

Curious what top critics like Edmunds have to say about this Honda SUV? Read the Pilot reviews:

  • Edmunds: “In a segment that includes the very desirable Mazda CX-9, Toyota Highlander and Volkswagen Atlas, [the Honda Pilot] could very well be the best when it comes to a family-friendly choice.”
  • The Car Connection: “The [Honda Pilot] has terrific room for passengers and whatever they might bring with them—from juice boxes to suitcases. We rate it at 9 out of 10, awarding it points for it handles passengers in all three rows, its voluminous interior, and smart touches for storing smaller items.”
  • Digital Trends: “On road, the Pilot is as comfortable and easy to drive as ever. 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque is plenty to hustle through traffic and even tow up to 5,000 pounds.”

Automobile Magazine: “It has a light-on-its-feet feel that’s become a Honda trademark, which is all the more impressive given that we’re talking about a two-ton crossover.”
