The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

8.8
8.0

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2016 Honda Pilot has axed its hard edges: it's once again a smooth, capable family wagon, one that raises the bar for refinement. The 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe is geared toward big families with a strong V-6 and loads of features, but third-row seat space is slim, and safety scores are absent.
