TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Chevrolet Traverse is an Acadia/Enclave/Outlook wearing different duds. The 2009 Honda Pilot looks more SUV-like in its second edition, but it has the room of a minivan, along with some notable styling miscues and expensive choices to make from the options list. Few seven-passenger vehicles are more road-friendly than the 2009 Mazda CX-9. Its looks and features list impress too.
