18 mpg city, 25 highway (front-wheel drive); 17/24 (AWD)
Whether or not the 2013 Honda Pilot is green depends on how you plan to use it. With an EPA highway rating of up to 25 mpg on the highway, the Pilot is one of the most fuel-efficient vehicles with three rows of seating, making it a good choice for families who want a greener vehicle. On the other hand, if you only need room for five, you could do much better with any number of four-cylinder or hybrid models. The Toyota Highlander even comes in a Hybrid model, which offers three rows.But we have found that the Pilot is quite fuel-efficient in real-world driving, and a cylinder-deactivation system helps the V-6 cut fuel consumption while coasting or cruising. We've managed to easily meet those ratings in previous drives, which certainly isn't the case across many models.
There's no four-cylinder engine offered in the Pilot, but if a V-6 and three rows of seating are priorities, it's one of the most efficient picks.
