Space Inside the Pilot
When you choose a midsize SUV, you want to make sure it has plenty of room inside for your passengers and everything you need to take with you. Fortunately, the 2020 Honda Pilot is well designed with this in mind. Depending on the trim level you choose, you get seating for either seven or eight total people, so keep that in mind when making your decision.
The first few trims of the Pilot have seating for up to eight people, with a pair of seats in the front, and three-person bench seating in the second and third rows. The Elite trim, on the other hand, gives you seating for seven people, with a pair of second-row seats. If you choose the Touring trim, then you can get it with either seven-person or eight-person seating, depending on how you want the second row configured.
The Honda Pilot is also an excellent choice for loading up all the cargo and supplies you need to take with you. You get about 16 cu.ft. of cargo space behind the third row of seats, along with about 46 cu.ft. of space behind the second row. Fortunately, this is not impacted by whether you choose seating for seven or eight people total, so you can get the seating you want and still have plenty of room for everything you need. The Pilot has about 84 cu.ft. of total cargo space behind the front-row seats, making it great for camping trips or loading up for a day of tailgating.
Comfort and Technology
Since most of your time with your vehicle is going to be spent inside it, along with the right amount of space, you always want to make sure you pick a model that has great comfort, luxury, and technology features. The 2020 Honda Pilot has a wide range of options depending on which trim level you look at, but the top trim, the Elite, has more to offer than even imaginable.
The Pilot Elite features great convenience features like push-button start, cruise control, and illuminated steering wheel-mounted controls, but every Pilot model has these. The Elite goes further, however, with tri-zone automatic climate control, an automatic-dimming rearview mirror, and a heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel. You also get courtesy door lights, blue ambient interior lighting, and perforated, heated leather-trimmed front seats.
The technology inside the 2020 Honda Pilot is also fantastic, with the Elite trim featuring numerous USB ports and power outlets. The Elite also has an 8-inch Infotainment system with voice-recognition Navigation and HD Radio. You get a stunning 10-speaker sound system in the Pilot Elite, with a subwoofer, as well as a wireless phone charger, and an advanced rear entertainment system with a 10-inch high-resolution screen and Blu-ray player. Whether you are simply driving across town or heading out on a long road trip, the Pilot will keep you and all of your passengers comfortable and entertained.
