Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility has been added to Pilots with the 8-inch touchscreen (EX and above). Otherwise, the Pilot carries over unchanged.

Pros
A versatile, roomy interior with spacious rear seats
Ride is smooth and compliant in most conditions
Better fuel economy than rivals
Multiple clever storage compartments

Cons
Nine-speed automatic transmission lacks refinement
Collision warning and adaptive cruise control are overly sensitive
Third-row access is narrow
Touchscreen interface isn't very intuitive

The 2017 Honda Pilot ranks 3 out of 18 Midsize SUVs. Though it’s a little more expensive than other midsize SUVs, its standard V6, roomy cabin, and available active safety features make the 2017 Honda Pilot a smart choice.

Pros
Plush, roomy seats
Adult-friendly third row
Cavernous cargo bay
Great safety scores

Cons
Complicated audio and climate controls

The 2017 Honda Pilot is a capable, refined crossover SUV with all the goodness of a minivan, save for the sliding doors.
The Honda Pilot was one of the first big crossovers to completely shun the old SUV idiom. No blocky, bluff styling, no truck-like frame, no rugged low-ratio transfer case or knobby off-road tires. The first Pilot had slim roof pillars, a cushy Civic-like cabin, and lots of seats.

Pros
The boxy look's been banished
Lavish new interior light-years ahead of the old
Better seats, better cargo space
Android interface, lots of ports for plugs
Gas-mileage gains

Cons
Maybe not as distinctive in styling
9-speed automatic can get confused
Blind-spot monitors only on most expensive model
One-touch seats only on EX-L and pricier models
