The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Honda Pilot looks tough and truck-like from the outside, yet inside it's one of the better family haulers. It's an easy call among crossovers: the 2013 Kia Sorento has the right features, the right fuel economy, and the right size.
