The Pilot now has a handsome shape to match its capable, relaxed road manners.
Its rivals are no slouches, either.
The Toyota Highlander is comfortable, but not much fun to drive, especially in Hybrid trim.
The Nissan Pathfinder has good space and seating flexibility, but the CVT and V-6 drone at highway speeds, and it feels as big as it looks.
The Ford Explorer hits the same crossover-SUV moving target, though its interior and third-row space are inferior.
The Chevrolet Traverse has a smart new look and a strong V-6 powertrain.
Finally, the slightly smaller Hyundai Santa Fe has a more compact third-row seat and more anonymous looks, but it's fairly nimble, quick, and has a great touchscreen infotainment interface.
