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 Nissan Pathfinder lacks sporty or off-road intentions, instead offering space for seven in a composed, quiet environment.
