The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
If you can deal with its overwrought styling, the 2010 Honda Pilot is an excellent family vehicle, with the space and comfort of a minivan and good overall performance. The 2009 Chevrolet Traverse is an Acadia/Enclave/Outlook wearing different duds.
