Review: 2014 Honda Pilot

The spacious 2014 Honda Pilot returns to the Waikem Honda showroom for a new year. With room for up to 8, plenty of storage, great tech and new features, you still can’t go wrong if you’re looking for space. The 2014 Honda Pilot doesn’t have any changes from last year’s model, but when you are as popular and stylish as this model, why would need to change. When you start talking about the Pilot, you start with space. There is room for 8 people to fit inside the Pilot thanks to 3 rows of comfortable seating.


Now a lot of models might brag about their third row, but few are as comfortable as the Pilot. And with tri-zone automatic climate control, everyone is comfortable — no one will ever be too hot or too cold. But when cargo needs exceed people needs, the Pilot is your choice. Honda says there are 16 different seat position options inside a Honda Pilot. Fold-flat convenience makes it easy to fold down the second and third rows. In fact, Honda says four-feet wide sheets of plywood can be carried completely flat. Next, there is a 60/40 seating options for the second and third row. Or choose wide open space, choosing to fold down just one full row of seats which allows for 87 cubic feet of cargo room. You can a pair of bicycles in this option.


Thanks to the great technology in your 2014 Honda Pilot, everyone will be comfortable throughout the ride. Let’s start with 2 GB of available storage in the entertainment, allowing you to store your favorite songs and play whenever you want. Upgrade to the Navigation package, and you’ll upgrade to 15 GB or 3,500 available songs. With the available rear entertainment system, you’ll watch your favorite movies on that long road trip. But then, with the AV input, you can even play your favorite video games.

In fact, with the available heated leather seats and rear DVD player, you will probably pick the Pilot over the theater when choosing your next night out. Of course the Pilot also comes with available Bluetooth.


Safety and technology also meet in the middle in the 2014 Honda Pilot. An 8-inch Rear View Camera display comes standard in the 2014 Pilot, so it’s easy than ever to back up or park your new large SUV.

Other great safety features include the Tire Pressure Monitoring System, Child Safety LATCH in the second and third rows, and the Vehicle Stability Assist.

The Honda Pilot also comes with available Four Wheel Drive and 8 inches of ground clearance.

The Car Connection:

“If you’re a family who needs a minivan yet can’t live with the idea of owning one, the the 2014 Pilot remains one of the best crossover choices available with a third row of seats. Its boxy design creates extra headroom and cargo space, yet its car-like driving dynamics–paired with a few SUV structural benefits–create a happy happy compromise that’s good for most duties.”

 Kelley Blue Book:

“Factor in proven Honda reliability and customer satisfaction, the pleasurable driving experience, good resale value, its comprehensive offering of features and that it’s the most fuel-efficient 8-passenger SUV on the market, and it’s very difficult not to like the 2014 Pilot.” 


“The big appeal about the 2014 Pilot is space. There’s plenty of room on the inside. Even the third-row seats can accommodate adults, making this a true eight-passenger vehicle. And while the Pilot’s boxy architecture may not win it any style points, it allows for a more usefully shaped cargo bay and ultimately makes life more convenient: Just drop those rear seats and you’re ready to load up at Costco and Home Depot.”

Consumer Reports:

The Pilot has impressive functionality and seating for eight. We found the six-cylinder engine and five-speed automatic to be smooth and refined.
