Designed as it is for optimization, the Pilot Honda hybrid SUV has one of the largest and most versatile passenger and cargo compartments amongst its class. It has an adaptable cargo and storage space with second- and third-row seats folded flat. Almost 88 cubic feet of cargo space is available. How’s that for loading? The flat floor can accommodate plywood and other paneling. Even if you use all the passenger seats in the back, you still have some space remaining for groceries and luggage.

Then there are also the standard technical features like the 244hp 3.5 liter 24-valve i-VTEC engine, drive-by-wire throttle system, variable cylinder management system, active control engine mount system, active noise cancellation, variable power-assisted rack and pinion steering, and a lot more.
