By KBB.com Editors on June 15, 2016 6:46 AM

An All-time Favorite Gets Even Better

For as long as the Honda Pilot has been around, it has been at the top of shoppers' lists. That's an impressive feat in such a competitive segment. For 2016, this perennial standout has been completely redesigned with a less boxy look, roomier interior and loads of available features. As our review of the 2016 Pilot explains, "The only thing that remains the same on the 2016 Honda Pilot is the name." Not only that, but it is KBB's Midsize SUV Best Buy of 2016.

Behind the Wheel

Smooth, organic driving feel has long been a Pilot highlight, and the trend continues. As we noted in our full review of the 2016 Honda Pilot: "It took about 100 yards for our editor to determine that the new Honda Pilot was dramatically improved over its predecessor, and about 10 miles to conclude that it might be the best-driving crossover SUV in its class."

Build and Price

There are five trim levels for the 2016 Pilot lineup. Pricing starts with the LX at around $31,000 and tops out around $47,000 for the new Elite trim level. Build and price your own 2016 Honda Pilot to unlock its Kelley Blue Book Fair Purchase Price, 5-year Cost to Own and more.

Consumer Reviews

KBB.com visitor Impressed Honda Owner says the Pilot "...almost feels like you are sitting in a luxury vehicle, and yes, I've owned multiple luxury vehicles. Very very minimal use of plastics, most of the cabin is soft touch materials that you find in Audi, Mercedes, BMW, etc... The cabin and dash are not cluttered with buttons and levers everywhere, it is very simplistic, classy and clean (almost Audiesque)." See more consumer reviews of the 2016 Honda Pilot.
