The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.5

5.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Honda Pilot is a three-row family crossover at the top of its class. The 2020 Subaru Ascent is nearly as rational a family hauler as a minivan. The 2021 VW Atlas is a competent family hauler that assimilates into the daily routine without fuss.
