Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2020 Honda Pilot comes with front wheel drive, and all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 9-speed shiftable automatic, 6-speed automatic.No major changes for 2020.New top-line Black Edition trim level.

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
Collision warning and adaptive cruise control are overly sensitive
Third-row access is narrow

For 2020, the Honda Pilot receives the mildest of updates. Along with a small price increase, the Pilot lineup adds a new range-topping model called the Black Edition. Honda fans will recognize that the same edition is available on the Ridgeline mid-size pickup truck. Likewise, the Pilot Black Edition has standard all-wheel drive, blacked-out exterior bits, and red interior accents.

Pros
Strong and efficient V-6, roomy and practical interior, plenty of available tech.

Cons
Clunky six-speed automatic transmission, minivan-like appearance, frustrating touchscreen.

The 2020 Honda Pilot is a three-row family crossover at the top of its class.

Pros
Handsome looks
Good seats all the way around
Comfortable power
Standard active safety tech
Good infotainment on most versions

Cons
Base model skimp on features
Too conservative?
9-speed isn’t much more fuel-efficient
Top trims lack convincing luxury features

The HR-V returns unchanged for the 2020 model year.

Pros
Average-size adults fit comfortably in the front and back
Clever cargo solutions make it more versatile than rivals
Better than most competitors on fuel economy
Excellent outward visibility

Cons
Unimpressive power output results in lackluster acceleration
Palpable engine noise and vibration
Touchscreen interface is difficult to use
Cabin materials look a little cheaper than those in some rivals

The 2020 Honda HR-V oozes with practicality, though gas mileage and safety equipment have room to improve.

Pros
Brilliant interior flexibility
Good value even at top trim
Tidy interior
Rides well

Cons
Slow acceleration
A few too many details
Emergency braking only on EX and above
Pricey Touring trim

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Honda made some superficial and mechanical changes to the HR-V for the previous model year, but it doesn't make any significant updates to the 2020 lineup.

Pros
Impressive fuel economy,
outstanding cargo storage,
durable and well-built interior.

Cons
Buzzy engine sounds,
choppy ride on rough roads,
top features reserved for top model.
