Its spry handling makes navigating corners and turns smooth and its long list of features provides easy and fast access for infotainment while on the go. Learn more about other aspects of this vehicle and why it serves as a better option than its class competitor, the 2022 Honda Pilot.

The vehicle can accommodate up to seven people across three rows that have plenty of room to maneuver around easily. Headroom is just as extensive across all rows and legroom is enough in the middle and back rows.

The Honda Pilot features a functional cabin that is nothing fancy. It has its surfaces covered in quality materials and everything looks well put together. Nevertheless, it will not be mistaken for a luxury vehicle. The car comes with three rows as well that can seat up to eight people. All seats are comfortable and spacious including the last row.
