Good seating in all three rows, along with great cargo versatility, make the 2011 Honda Pilot a great family choice; although it misses some marks in the details, with a cluttered instrument panel and too many hard plastics.

Expert Quotes:

we were unimpressed with the quality and fit and finish of the new Pilot’s interior
Car and Driver

some interior plastics look shiny and cheap
Consumer Reports

the interior environment of the Pilot is downright serene
Autoblog

Honda has also managed to carve out an adult-size space [in the third row] by raising the hip point of the seat itself
Edmunds' Inside Line

blocky shape that enables the rear cargo hold to accept four-foot-wide sheets of plywood
Car and Driver

Inside, the 2011 Pilot is as roomy and functional as ever; it's one of few vehicles this size to have a third row that's spacious enough for adults (though headroom is tight in the far back). Front seats are generously sized yet quite firm, and excellent for long road trips, while the second-row seats slide fore and aft for easy access to the third row or to get just the right balance of legroom between rows. The second and third rows split 60/40 and fold forward.

From a practicality standpoint, the interior of the 2011 Honda Pilot interior brims with cubbies, holders, and bins for accoutrements of all sorts. Oddly, the chunky, oversized aesthetic doesn't carry over to instrument-panel controls, which come across as cluttered, and the hard-plastic surfaces used throughout the dash are disappointing.

Conclusion

Good seating in all three rows, along with great cargo versatility, make the 2011 Honda Pilot a great family choice; although it misses some marks in the details, with a cluttered instrument panel and too many hard plastics.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
