What the Media has to Say about the New 2016 Honda Pilot

Featuring room for seven or eight passengers, the 2016 Honda Pilot is the perfect family-hauler.

Starting at $ 35,490, the 2016 Honda Pilot certainly has quite a bit to offer. Reliable and safe, it features plenty of amenities including Honda’s patented Honda Sensing technology, which includes a host of active safety systems designed to prevent accidents before they happen.

Featuring room for seven or eight passengers, the 2016 Honda Pilot is the perfect family-hauler. Not surprising, then, that the media has some kind words for Honda’s newest midsize SUV. To learn more, check out our article about the 2016 Honda Pilot here.

In the meantime, have a look at what some had to say about the 2016 Honda Pilot:

If a stylish, useful, and trouble-free ride is what you’re after, well—ladies and gentlemen, this is your Pilot speaking. The 280-hp 3.5-liter V-6 powers the front or all four wheels through a six-speed automatic; top-level Touring and Elite trims get a nine-speed. The all-wheel-drive system offers torque vectoring for better handling and modes for snow, sand, and mud. The Pilot’s three rows provide plenty of room for all and a host of active-safety tech is available to keep everyone safe – Car And Driver

Honda's Pilot was a pioneer in the race to reformat rugged SUVs into something more prosaic, more useful--more liveable on a daily basis. When it was new in 2003, the Pilot got the driving height and all-weather traction of the SUV right, and wrapped it in an airy Honda-like body with lots of seats, superb visibility and, truth, frumpy looks.

That was fine--a huge hit, even--until a 2009 reskin gave the Pilot a much thicker, squared-off body meant to drag it into the sport-ute mainstream. Just when everyone else was climbing out of the water, introducing sleek-looking crossover SUVs with lots of curves.

Lesson learned.

After that styling misstep in 2009, the 2016 Pilot eschews the squared off look of the previous model and gets softer corners, but ladles on a more rewarding driving experience, tons of safety features, a more useful interior, and up-to-date infotainment features, not to mention its plushest Elite trim yet.

All told, the 2016 Pilot isn't just the best Pilot yet, it's the best three-row crossover SUV we know--better than Explorer, Pathfinder, Highlander, and Traverse, in a few or many ways, depending on which one you compare – The Car Connection
