Honda Pilot Overview

The Pilot has impressive functionality and seating for eight. We found the six-cylinder engine and five-speed automatic to be smooth and refined, but acceleration 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 as well finished as the interiors of some competitors, and the dash has a mix of similar-looking buttons. The 60/40-split second- and third-row seats fold flat into the floor to expand cargo room. A rear-view camera is standard on all trim lines. We can no longer recommend the Pilot because it scored a Poor in the IIHS small-overlap crash test.
