TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Honda Pilot does a solid impression of a minivan, minus the cultural baggage. The 2021 Hyundai Palisade builds a bridge to luxury with three rows of seats, big touchscreens, and quilted leather. The 2021 Subaru Ascent scales the mountain of family needs for a three-row crossover.
