The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Honda Pilot may not look cutting-edge, but it’s still one of the most family-friendly crossovers available. The 2008 Mazda CX-9 may be the best-driving full-size seven-passenger crossover out there. It is certainly one of the best looking and appointed.
