We could go on and on as to how 2016 Honda Pilot outshines all comers in the midsize SUV segment. But truth be told, we find no other offering in the class that compare to Pilot. That makes comparative, impartial drive review just a bit tougher. That autonomous driving thing is just a teaser when it comes to Honda’s most refined 3 row. 2016 Honda Pilot reinvents the mainstream 8 passenger SUV.

I was a huge fan of Honda’s first Pilot when it launched over a decade ago. The large, three-row SUV had an appealing look wrapped around a unibody platform at a time when many large SUVs still used truck-based, body-on-frame designs.

All-new for the 2016 model year, Honda has introduced the Pilot. While the old Pilot has been given much love, Honda wanted to introduce something a bit more sleek, with better mpg and a better reflection of where the company is going.

The third-generation Honda Pilot SUV is like the third bowl of porridge Goldilocks sampled: just right. It’s more stylish and less truck-like than the previous two Pilots, and features a full complement of Honda Sensing driver-assist technology.

Honda reliability, a roomy interior, and a practical shape are what sell the Pilot. Absent is any sense of style or indulgent luxury. The new 2016 Pilot seeks to amend that and, in so doing, take some of the drudgery out of parenthood—even as it delves further into its role as a minivan proxy.

The crossover market is hot and spans many segments from the sub-compact to the full-sizers you see here. The 2016 Honda Pilot is the latest entry and it looks to steal market share from the competition and grow further. Who are the competitors? They are many, but the top three are the Ford Explorer, Toyota Highlander, and the Chevy Traverse.

The current Honda Pilot, while a more-than-adequate family hauler, is getting stale: it debuted in 2009 and has had only a mild facelift, in 2012. With the 2016 Pilot, Honda needed to align its three-row SUV with its newer, smaller utility vehicles while meeting the demands of evolved buyers. The bigger, lighter Pilot wears the new Honda family face and moves a half-step closer to the minivan end of the vehicle spectrum, a slightly disappointing inevitability in this segment.

The 2016 Honda Pilot has been completely redesigned for the new model year, and even though it has an entirely new look, extra goodies, and a new drivetrain, the new SUV only sees a slight increase in price over its predecessor. Starting at $30,875 including destination, the 2016 Pilot is only $125 more than the 2015 model.

The redesigned Pilot is a little bit bigger, but not as boxy as older models, making it feel more a part of the Honda family than some weird distant cousin. It gets better fuel economy, makes more power, and comes with better safety systems and driver aids, like adaptive cruise control.

The 2016 Honda Pilot represents a complete redesign for this popular, but previously underwhelming three-row crossover. It’s more streamlined in appearance, more carlike to drive and plusher inside, while the features list swells with the latest technology, safety and luxury equipment. After our first lengthy test-drive, it feels like a class leader.

For all it had going for it, the second-generation Honda Pilot was stung by one undeniable fact: it looked like a big, boxy SUV at a time when consumer favor was shifting towards car-based crossovers. For 2016, though, Honda is offering a third-generation Pilot that not only does away with the old model’s brutalist looks, but also adopts bleeding-edge safety technology and fuel-efficient powertrains.
