The Honda Pilot can handle four adults and four kids easily. It has useful cargo space beyond the third-row seats so you needn't fold any seats down to fit a week's worth of groceries. And with six cupholders in the second row alone, eight door cargo pockets and the ability to carry a 4x8-foot sheet of building material flat inside, finding a place for everything isn't an issue.
The Pilot lineup also includes models suitable for hard-core outdoor adventurers. Most models are sold with all-wheel drive for better acceleration and climbing in snow.
The Pilot is a midsize crossover SUV. As with other so-called crossover SUVs, it uses carlike unit-body construction and suspension for better fuel economy and handling.
The front seats deliver good support for long-term comfort and bolsters on the seatbacks provide lateral support without imposing thigh cushions you'd have to climb over for every entry or exit. The second-row seats are as roomy as the front and the third row is relatively easy to access. The Pilot is easy to figure out and operate and every works as expected.
Underway, we found the Pilot a well balanced vehicle with nice road manners, with sufficient power and brakes, decent ride quality and handling. Pilot 4WD models have the ability to leave the pavement or tackle pre-plowed snow. The V6 offers comparable performance for the class.
Pilot is efficient among eight-seat crossovers. Fuel economy for a Pilot 4WD is a government-rated 16/22 mpg City/Highway.
For 2011, Pilot EX-L offers satellite-linked navigation; and Pilot Touring comes standard with a DVD entertainment system. Pilot was redesigned for the 2009 model year.
