Honda Pilot Summary

The Honda Pilot is a full-size SUV that is available in six trim levels. It offers spacious and cozy seating for up to seven passengers and plenty of cargo space. Available in all-wheel drive, the Honda Pilot has great safety scores. With all these practical features in mind, it's easy to imagine the Honda Pilot as a family car that seats all rear passengers comfortably, even adults.
