2017 Honda Civic Hatchback LX
August 29 2019
The Honda Pilot has been a pillar in Honda’s lineup for more than 15 years. In that time, it has established itself as one of the most versatile, spacious and family friendly vehicles on the market. It is also widely recognized as one of the most reliable vehicles in its midsize SUV segment.
How can the competition hope to keep up? They can’t and here’s a breakdown as to why the Honda Pilot is the one 3-row SUV that will help you keep your busy family life on track.
All Honda Pilot versions include our Intelligent Variable Torque Management (i-VTM4) AWD system which ensures maximum grip and traction no matter the road and driving conditions. Providing forward motion is our 280-horsepower 3.5-litre V6 which features Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) for maximum fuel efficiency without affecting available power. On the topic of power, the Honda Pilot can tow up to 5,000 lbs. without breaking a sweat.
Physically, we are quite proud of the Pilot’s styling. It is distinct, elegant for an SUV and every bit a Honda – we’ll admit we were inspired by the Honda Civic Type R when we recently revised the front grille. Depending on the selected trim, 20-inch wheels, full LED lighting and there’s even a Canadian-exclusive Black Edition for those who like the stealth look.
Although the Honda Pilot is a pleasure to drive, the cabin’s various setups and generous helpings of space need to be brought up. From the driver’s available 10-way power seat adjustments, every passenger is treated to loads of space, comfort, storage areas and convenient features.
Depending on the selected trim, there are seats for 7 (with available 2nd row captain seats) or 8, heated seats in the first and second rows, a heated steering wheel, up to four USB connectors, and a Wi-Fi hotspot. Every Honda Pilot features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, HondaLink, Bluetooth streaming and a high-powered audio system.
Your family life needs space for all the gear, including hockey bags, camping gear and everything else. The Honda Pilot delivers over 500 litres of volume behind the third row and nearly 1,600 litres behind the second row. We promise it will all fit.
