Product Overview

Honda Pilot is an affordable mid-size crossover in production from 2002 to 2008. It was available with a single naturally-aspirated V6 petrol engine that displaced 3.5 liters. The only transmission is a 5-speed automatic, though both FWD and AWD were offered.
Utility-minded owners will love the 2557L (90cu-ft) cargo space, though the vehicle is rather bland both in design and in handling characteristics.
Drivers who appreciate handling should keep in mind that the Honda Pilot uses MacPherson front suspension, which doesn't provide the best cornering performance.
