The 2015 Honda Pilot: a good family vehicle with several great qualities

Honda PilotThe 2015 Honda Pilot: a good family vehicle with several great qualities

It’s not an Accord. It’s not a Civic. But it is a Honda. Have you been introduced to the Honda Pilot? This special edition trim level of the Honda serves as a good family vehicle with several note-worthy qualities. Check out the Pilot below.


The number one boasted-about feature of the Pilot is its space. While many SUV’s claim to seat eight passengers, you’ll find that many are not truly capable of doing so; back rows are typically too small to fit adults. But, the Pilot is true to its word. Adults can actually fit in the third row without folding completely in half! The boxy shape of the Pilot also comes to its advantage, giving it a great amount of cargo room, especially for bulky items.

The Pilot comes in many trim levels that will suit most shoppers. Here’s what you’ll get with each trim:



At the base level, the LX comes standard with 17-inch steel wheels, rearview privacy glass, keyless entry and rearview camera. It also includes an eight-inch display screen and seven-speaker sound system.



If you step up to the EX, you’ll get the features of the LX, but also a few more perks, like 18-inch alloy wheels and body-colored mirror caps and door handles (instead of black plastic). More seating positions are also offered with an eight-way power driver seat with two-way power lumbar support.



With the SE, the ruler of the radio doesn’t always have to be in the front seat. The Pilot SE adds a touch of rear-seat fun with an entertainment system with satellite radio.



The EX-L provides two options to choose from that may just make you want to bump up to this trim. With the EX-L, you can choose between a rear-seat entertainment system, or you can pick the navigation system, which includes voice controls, subwoofer, 15 GB digital music storage and customizable vehicle settings. Keep in mind, you can only choose one or the other, not both.



The Touring trim is the top of the Pilot line and steps the vehicle up to some great features not found on any other models: roof rails, front and rear parking sensors, enhanced tire-pressure monitoring system and 10-speaker sound system. Unlike the EX-L, the Touring gets both rear seat entertainment system and navigation.

Some Other Key Facts:

Inside the Pilot, you’ll discover a useful design with thoughtful details. All trims come standard with automatic climate control and eight-inch info screen.

Storage inside the cabin is plenty, with small storage bins located throughout. There is also a fold-out net and under-floor bin that creates two tiers of extra storage located behind the third row.

While driving the Pilot you’ll get a very quiet ride, even at high speeds. The ride is also cushy, so uncomfortable bumps are kept to a minimum.
