The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
Despite the 2014 Honda Pilot's truck-like exterior, it's one of more practical and family-friendly models on of the market today. The 2014 Volkswagen Touareg is an expensive way to purchase a mainstream brand's vehicle, but it's more luxurious than many of its mainstream competitors.
