For a three-row crossover SUV, the Pilot is surprisingly fast. The V6 engine provides plenty of power to get you down the road. Car and Driver lists its 0-60 mph as 6.2 seconds. That’s faster than many cars half the size, including a Volkswagen Golf, Ford Focus and Honda Civic.
Critics say it isn’t as much fun to drive as other vehicles in its class, it brakes fairly hard, and the steering does not give much feedback. Everything is also touch screen, so looking for the radio volume can be a longer journey than the old-fashioned route.
