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 Volkswagen Touareg delivers good performance and a luxurious interior--although it's a mainstream brand asking for a luxury-vehicle price.
