When you’re cruising the San Antonio, Schertz, and Alamo Heights streets, you and your family deserve to do it in style. More importantly, your set of wheels should make you feel comfortable, entertained, and safe, transforming even the most mundane commutes into joy rides. The Honda Pilot is sure to evoke those exact feelings while giving you a dependable ride you can count on.
To find out more about this family SUV, the team at Northside Honda is here with our 2020 Honda Pilot review. Keep reading below to see if it’ll make the perfect addition to your daily routine.
One of the most important aspects of any SUV is what is under the hood. You and your family have a busy life and need something that is ready when you are and keeps up with your daily demands. Luckily, the Honda Pilot goes above and beyond.
Across all six trim levels, the Pilot is powered by a 3.5L V6 that generates an impressive 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. This robust power is easily controlled with the standard 6-speed automatic transmission or the available 9-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. With the paddle shifters, the Pilot delivers an even sportier drive.
Need extra traction? You got it with the available Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ (i-VTM4®) AWD system. Along with boosted traction, this AWD system also comes with customized drive modes, so you can conquer the path ahead even in inclement weather.
The 2020 Pilot boasts a comfortable and connected cabin. The SUV can seat up to eight inside with three spacious rows. To conveniently chat with those in the back row, the CabinTalk® system is available. This in-vehicle PA system gives the driver a mic that delivers sound through the back speakers—indoor voices are welcomed in here!
To ensure everyone is comfortable inside, relax with the heated and ventilated front seats and activate tri-zone climate control. The climate control system allows you to set different temperatures for the driver, front passenger, and rear of the vehicle.
With a suite of fun and intuitive technology, everyone on board will be happy and entertained as well. Some available tech features include:
SUVs are known for their ample cargo space—and with the 2020 Pilot, it is no different. However, the Pilot takes cargo configuration to a whole new level with its 60/40 split flat-folding third-row bench seat and one-touch second-row seats. While the rear bench can be folded down completely flat, the second row offers an available button that allows even more seating and cargo customization.
|Cargo Area Behind 3rd Row||
Up to 18.5 cubic feet
|Cargo Area Behind 2nd Row||
Up to 55.9 cubic feet
|Cargo Area Behind 1st Row||
Up to 109 cubic feet
No matter how you have the seating arrangement, loading and unloading the rear is a breeze. When your hands are full of groceries or sports gear, wave your foot underneath the hands-free access power tailgate. The tailgate will automatically open, so you don’t need to put down any of your belongings on the ground to load up the cargo bay!
If you’d like to see how these features work in person or learn more about what this SUV has in store for you, the staff at Northside Honda makes it easy. All drivers in the San Antonio, Schertz, and Alamo Heights areas can schedule a test drive to get behind the wheel for themselves. We look forward to seeing you on the lot soon!
