The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
9.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
If you can get past the garish grille and overwrought look, the 2011 Honda Pilot is a fine family vehicle, with minivan-like interior space and decent performance. A singular look, along with top-shelf turbo power and features, earns the 2011 Ford Flex our top score among utility vehicles.
