The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Honda Pilot looks tough and truck-like from the outside, yet inside it's one of the better family haulers. The 2013 Mazda CX-9 gets a sharper, even sportier look, as well as new active-safety features, and should remain one of the most exciting and engaging vehicles with three rows of seating.
