2017 Honda Pilot Buyer's Guide

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. Last year, this perennial standout was completely redesigned with a less boxy look, a roomier interior and loads of available features, with only minor changes for 2017. As our review of the 2017 Pilot explains, "this might just be the best-riding, best-handling 3-row family transport under $40,000." Not only that, but for the second year in a row, it is KBB's Midsize SUV Best Buy

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 2017 Honda Pilot: "We wouldn’t classify the Pilot’s performance as sporty, but rather overwhelmingly confident. On the road, the Pilot feels nimble and maneuverable, with a very tight turning radius that makes it easy to navigate in tight spots."

Build and Price

For the 2017 Pilot lineup, pricing starts with the LX at around $31,000 and tops out around $48,000 for the Elite trim level. Build and price your own 2017 Honda Pilot to unlock its Kelley Blue Book Fair Purchase Price, 5-year Cost to Own and more.

Consumer Reviews visitor and Honda Pilot owner Alex says, "I got a basic version - LX AWD. Very happy with the choice. All complaints appear to be about the features that I do not have anyway (touch display, 9sp transmission, sensing, etc.). I am a technical guy, but the level of technology on the basic model is just enough for me. It has everything that I (and my iPhone) need – maybe I would add an outside thermometer." See more consumer reviews of the 2017 Honda Pilot.

More Good Choices

The Honda Pilot has a lot to offer, but so does the segment as a whole. With varied approaches to the midsize crossover/SUV, it's worth it to do your homework. Check out all your options in our Midsize SUV Buyer's Guide.
