2018 Honda Pilot

If three’s a crowd, eight’s an expedition.

Journeyers, meet the Pilot – the Honda paragon of utility and efficiency. Equipped with the Earth Dreams™ engine and available idle-stop, the Pilot thirsts for adventure, not fuel. Its roomy interior seats up to eight passengers,1 and 3rd-row access has never been easier using the available one-touch second row seats. Plus, its cargo capacity makes any packing list just about limitless. We’ve made Honda Sensing™ safety and driver-assistive technologies standard, so you’ll take confidence with you on every trip. With a refined interior inside the modern, sleek exterior, you won’t just catch attention – you’ll ride comfortably at the centre of it. The Pilot is confident, bold and ready for anything. Are you?

The Pilot has enough room for up to eight passengers (seven on the Touring model with the second-row captain’s chairs) and includes effortless third-row access using the available one-touch second row seats. When you need to load gear, groceries or goodies, the Pilot is up to the task with easy fold-down 60/40 split-folding rear seats in both the second and third row. Plus, the rear cargo boasts ample space, easily fitting a 77.6-litre (82-quart) cooler for plenty of snacks and drinks. And with a reversible cargo lid, you can flip between the carpet and plastic side – no cargo is too messy to handle. There’s even space for everyday essentials using the deep centre console with sliding smartphone tray. For those adventures with a lot going on, the Pilot has a lot to work with.
