Honda Pilot Overview

The Pilot has impressive functionality and seating for eight, but it is showing its age. Acceleration from the smooth and refined six-cylinder engine and five-speed automatic is not that quick. In our tests we got 18 mpg overall. The ride is supple and controlled, but road noise is elevated. Handling is sound, but it doesn't shine at its limits, and braking is not terrific. The interior is not particularly well finished and some controls use small, similar-looking buttons. The second- and third-row seats fold into the floor to expand cargo room. A rear-view camera is standard. We can no longer recommend the Pilot because it scored a Poor in the IIHS small-overlap crash test. A redesign arrives this summer with more safety features and new six- and nine-speed automatic transmissions.
