TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Honda Pilot is a capable, refined crossover SUV with all the goodness of a minivan, save for the sliding doors. The restyled 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport looks sharp, inside and out. We can't help but wonder what the model could do with a slightly improved powertrain lineup. With sharp looks inside and out, the CX-9 makes a good first impression—but we are less enthralled with its space utilization inside.
