Seating Configurations, Cargo Capacity, and Storage in the 2017 Honda Pilot

  • 2017 Honda Pilot

    In the market for affordable SUVs, the 2017 Honda Pilot rises far above the standard set by its competitors. Of course, this year’s Pilot is well equipped with standard technology, convenience, and safety features, but it’s this SUV’s spacious, smartly designed interior that makes it so capable and versatile. New England drivers place a high value on a vehicle’s cargo capacity, storage space, and seating configurations, and they’re lining up to get behind the wheel of the Honda Pilot.

Passenger Volume in the Cabin

The 2017 Honda Pilot has been designed with a generous interior dimensions, and with three rows of seating, you’ll be able to travel with up to eight passengers without feeling cramped! Total passenger volume for the Pilot is 152.9 cubic feet in its LX trim, and 153.1 cubic feet in its fully upgraded Elite model. Even backseat passengers will get ample space to stretch out in, with up to 40.2 inches of headroom (38.9 inches in the third row), 62.0 inches of shoulder room (57.6 inches in the third row), 57.3 inches of hip room (44.6 inches in the third row), and 38.4 inches of legroom (31.9 inches in the third row). What’s more, tri-zone automatic climate control is offered standard in the EX trim and above, and this feature allows everyone to select their ideal interior temperature.

Loading up with friends and family is easy in this year’s Pilot, with features like these:

Power Adjustable Front Seats: A 10-way power adjustable driver’s seat comes standard in every Pilot trim except for the baseline LX model. In the EX trim, a four-way power adjustable front passenger seat offers the same convenience for your trusted co-pilot.

Honda Pilot One Touch Second Row Seating

One-Touch Second-Row Seats: These are a standard feature in the Pilot’s EX trim. With this feature equipped, all you have to do is press a button to create a clear entryway between the second and third rows of seating.

Honda Pilot Second Row Captains Seats

Second-Row Captain’s Chairs: SUV drivers are accustomed to luxurious, accommodating front-row seating, but now, the Honda Pilot will enable buyers to extend that comfort to their vehicle’s second row! Perforated and heated second-row captain’s chairs are automatically equipped on the Pilot’s Elite trim.

Honda Pilot Leather Seating

Heated/Ventilated Seating: Heated front seats are standard in the Pilot EX-L and the Pilot Touring trims. Those who upgrade to the Pilot’s high-end Elite trim will find that their seats also have the capacity to provide ventilation!

Maximize Your Carrying Capacity in the Pilot

The 2017 Honda Pilot comes equipped with a plethora of features that make it easy to transport cargo of all shapes and sizes. Perhaps none of these features is more valuable than the Pilot’s foldable seating; both the second and third rows of seating can be reconfigured to make more room for large and bulky objects. The Pilot’s third row of seating is a 60/40-split folding bench seat, so you’ll always be able to strike the perfect balance between passenger volume and cargo space. Be sure to take advantage of the Pilot’s hidden storage well, located beneath the cargo bay, when you need to transport taller objects without turning them on their side!

With all of the seats up, Pilot drivers will still be able to make use of 18.5 cubic feet of cargo volume. This total increases to 55.9 cubic feet with the third row of seating out of the way, and when the second-row seats are also moved, your carrying capacity jumps to 109.0 cubic feet! No matter which configuration best suits your needs at a given time, easily accessible cargo-area tie-down anchors let you secure your most precious cargo.

On top of all this, everyone in the 2017 Honda Pilot will be able to keep their favorite handheld devices close at hand. Front passenger seatback pockets come standard on the LX, and in every other trim, an identical seatback pocket has been added behind the driver’s seat. The Pilot’s multi-functional center console storage is the ideal place to store phone chargers, wallets, flashlights, and more!
