Drivers in the market for a new SUV or crossover are often looking for impressive space to accommodate a greater number of passengers and a great deal more cargo than a car can handle. To answer those needs, Honda has provided an outstanding lineup of SUVs and CUVs for the 2016 model year. Among them is the 2016 Honda Pilot.
If you need room for a lot of passengers, you’ll find an exceptional 8-passenger SUV option in the Pilot. The Pilot further provides outstanding cargo capacity to accommodate you and your many passengers wherever you’re heading.
Read on, and we’ll explore the Pilot’s various assets and how this versatile vehicle compares with its competitors in terms of spaciousness.
Drivers who need a lot of seats frequently need a lot of cargo space, too. Fortunately, the Pilot also delivers big when it comes to cargo capacity.
The Pilot offers up to an impressive 109.2 cubic feet of cargo space with its rear seats down. In contrast, the Grand Cherokee provides only 68.3 cubic feet of maximum cargo space, while the Pathfinder provides just 79.8 cubic feet of maximum cargo capacity, and the Explorer offers only 81.7 cubic feet of maximum cargo volume.
The Pilot further provides great versatility when it comes to fluctuation seating versus cargo needs.
When all eight seats are needed, drivers can still take advantage of up to 18.5 cubic feet of cargo room behind the third row onboard the Pilot. When they have a mix of seating and cargo needs, drivers can utilize the Pilot’s 60/40-split, flat-folding third-row bench seat to make extra cargo space while still accommodating passengers in the third row.
An available One-Touch 2nd-Row Seat also moves forward at the press of a button to provide easy access to the third row or to create more space. An available power tailgate further provides convenient access to the Pilot’s capacious cargo room.
