The market for crossover vehicles is virtually exploding with options, and they each bring a little something different to the table. Many people in the market for this type of vehicle plan to use it as their primary family transportation, so they’re looking for many of the same things – space, safety, and technology features being chief among their list of must-haves. It takes an extra-special crossover vehicle to make the list of Kelley Blue Book’s 12 Best Family Cars, but the 2018 Honda Pilot did it. Read on for five reasons why.
When you’re driving around with your most precious cargo – your family – onboard, you want to be surrounded by top-notch safety features and protective systems. The 2018 Pilot has received excellent crash test scores from both the NHTSA and the IIHS, and it also can be equipped with Honda Sensing. This is Honda’s package of advanced safety and driver-assistance features that includes collision mitigation braking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and much more.
Seating for up to eight and ample legroom, headroom, and shoulder room all around promises that even your longest family road trips will remain peaceful. And when it comes to cargo room, the Pilot provides an impressive amount of space so all of those occupants can bring along whatever they deem necessary – no having to leave anything behind for lack of space.
The Pilot’s interior is filled with soft surfaces and comfort-oriented amenities. You can opt for second-row captain’s chairs, leather upholstery, and heated seats – all of which up the luxury feel inside the cabin of the Pilot.
The Honda Pilot has an energetic standard engine, a 280-horsepower V6 that fuels quick acceleration and easily keeps up on the highway. You might also be pleasantly surprised to learn that despite its size, the Pilot is not a gas guzzler.
5. Entertainment / Connectivity
When you’re carting around the whole family every day, you’re going to want some solid tech and entertainment equipment. With standard or available features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a rear-seat entertainment system, Pandora integration, and Bluetooth,* the Pilot offers plenty of options to keep everyone inside happily occupied no matter how long the drive.
