The Honda Pilot is a three-row midsize SUV sharing a platform with Honda's Odyssey minivan. In exchange for SUV styling and available all-wheel drive (AWD), the Pilot offers less room for cargo and passengers. As compensation, the Pilot supplies enough ground clearance to pick its way down a maintained dirt road while the available torque-vectoring AWD system can help on slippery roads. Driving a Honda Pilot borders on entertaining, thanks to vigorous acceleration and athletic handling. Rivals outpace it in some areas, but if you want a family-friendly vehicle, the Honda Pilot warrants consideration.
