The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
9.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Honda Pilot may not look cutting-edge, but it’s still one of the most family-friendly crossovers available. The 2009 Ford Flex is one of the most stylish new crossovers, with great passenger room and more features than some minivans.
