The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Honda Pilot is a three-row family crossover at the top of its class. The 2020 Nissan Pathfinder three-row crossover steers into the middle lane among rivals with just-enough for most families. The 2020 Subaru Ascent is nearly as rational a family hauler as a minivan.
