The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.5
6.5
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. With sharp looks inside and out, the CX-9 makes a good first impression—but we are less enthralled with its space utilization inside.
