The Honda CR-V and the Honda Pilot are two of the automaker’s most popular SUVs, and for good reason. Both offer plenty of passenger and cargo space, modern technology and conveniences, robust driver assistance suites, and excellent driving dynamics. If you’re torn between these two vehicles, take a look at this quick comparison between the two.
The Honda CR-V
The CR-V offers seating for up to five passengers between its two spacious rows. There are four trim levels to choose from: LX, EX, EX-L, and Touring. There is also a Hybrid configuration of the CR-V Standard features include the Honda Sensing® safety suite with collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, and a lane-keeping assist system; Bluetooth®* connectivity, automatic climate control, automatic high beams, LED daytime running lights, and more. As you move throughout the trim levels you’ll find amenities like Apple CarPlay®, heated seats, leather upholstery, a hands-free power tailgate, wireless phone charger, power-adjustable seats, and blind-spot monitoring.
The CR-V is considerably smaller than the Pilot, but it still offers plenty of space for any kids, pets, or cargo you may want to bring along for the ride. The CR-V has over 40 inches of headroom and legroom in both rows, with generous hip and shoulder room measurements, too. When the rear row is upright, you’ll have 39 cubic-feet of cargo space. Folding the rear row offers a generous 75 cubic-feet of space.
The Honda Pilot
The Honda Pilot is the perfect family SUV. It can seat up to eight passengers between three rows, and some trim levels offer second-row captain’s chairs for a seven-seat configuration. You can choose between six trim levels: LX, EX, EX-L, Touring, Elite, and the Black Edition. The Pilot is gasoline-only, there is no Hybrid configuration. Like the CR-V, the Pilot also has the Honda Sensing safety suite as a standard feature, along with very similar amenities as the CR-V. The Pilot has several features the CR-V does not, including multi-zone audio, an in-car PA system, and a Blu-ray rear entertainment system.
With similar headroom, legroom, and width measurements, the largest boost of space in the Pilot over the CR-V is the cargo capacity. You’ll have 18 cubic-feet behind the third row, 55 cubic-feet behind the second row, and 109 cubic feet when both rear rows are stowed.
