2024 Honda Pilot



The Honda Pilot has been a long-standing favorite in the full-size three-row crossover category. Its 2023 redesign gave it a distinct visual identity, setting it apart from the Odyssey despite their shared platform. The Pilot retains many practical features commonly found in minivans. It boasts ample space and an abundance of storage compartments, including second-row seats that conveniently slide forward at the press of a button, facilitating easy access to the rear seats for kids. All three rows offer comfort, though the third row is cozier for adults. The updated V6 engine provides ample power, enabling a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds, all while maintaining relatively good fuel efficiency. Similar to Honda’s popular CR-V, the Pilot excels across the board, handling tasks efficiently and without unnecessary fanfare.


Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

Being a family-friendly SUV, the 2024 Pilot’s cabin is designed with that use case in mind. All models are capable of sitting up to eight in the three rows but the EX-L trim can be had with optional second-row captain’s chairs that reduce passenger capacity to seven; captain’s chairs are standard on the TrailSport. The Touring and Elite models come with a second-row seat design where the middle seat portion can be removed and stored under the floor in the cargo area when not needed. Honda boasts that eight of the Pilot’s cupholders can hold big 32-ounce water bottles and that its cargo area is more voluminous than ever before. There’s reasonable cargo space with all three rows of seats up; we fit six carry-ons sized boxes behind the third row, two more than we could stuff into a Kia Telluride.


Infotainment and Connectivity

A 7.0-inch infotainment touchscreen and an accompanying 7.0-inch digital gauge cluster are standard on the Pilot. Honda’s latest infotainment interface is easy to use and features both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. TrailSport, Touring, and Elite models get a larger 9.0-inch infotainment display with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability; the Elite also comes with a 10.2-inch gauge cluster. Honda hasn’t said what the standard stereo will be in the Pilot, but the Touring and Elite models come with a 12-speaker setup from Bose.
