2012 honda pilot Reviews and News

2012 Honda Pilot
2012 Honda Pilot
The Honda Pilot is a vehicle that will appeal to active families. It has a versatile layout, a capable powertrain, and a track record of reliability. Many of the Pilot's features will make Honda owners feel right at home: it's based on the Odyssey, so it drives in much the same fashion. The 3.5-liter V-6 is good for 250 hp and 253 lb-ft of torque, as well as a 4500-pound tow rating with the optional four-wheel drive. It is also one of the best-driving crossovers in its segment. The steering is nicely weighted, engineers have dialed in the suspension so that there's little body roll, and the ride quality is neither too soft nor too stiff. The Pilot's interior has always been functional, but it gets even better for the 2012 model year with a simplified center stack and a more logical control layout for the infotainment system, which combines music, phone, and navigation (when equipped) into one package that is surprisingly easy to use. The Pilot has three rows of seats and can carry eight passengers, although it's still not as roomy as a minivan. There are other vehicles in this segment -- such as the Mazda CX-9 -- that are more attractively styled and are more powerful, but the Pilot manages to outsell the CX-9 more than four to one. The Pilot capitalizes on its reputation for reliability, on the cachet of the Honda name, and, most important, on the fact that it is a very usable vehicle that makes sense for lots of consumers.

Honda might not have the softest interior plastics in the business, but this is one of the most functional interiors among SUVs. There are ample cubbyholes and covered storage opportunities up front, along with a 12-volt power port in the dash and another 12-volt plug plus a 115-volt power outlet in the center console. Storing, and powering, multiple cell phones wasn't a problem and the cup holders fit a wide variety of beverages ranging from a coffee cup to plastic water bottles. Everything was very intuitive to use and the storage spaces are right where you want them.

Hondas and Acuras typically feel smaller and nimbler than their competitors. The Pilot should have the same virtue. It weighs a relatively svelte 4608 pounds (a Chevrolet Traverse, by comparison, checks in at 4956 pounds), and it rides on the same basic platform as the Acura MDX, one of the best-driving crossovers on the market. And yet, for a company that does not sell a body-on-frame truck, Honda sure has managed to inject an old-school SUV flavor into the Pilot. That's not a good thing. The heavy, slow steering and the large, boxy shape make the Pilot feel larger and heavier than it actually is. Even Honda's trusty 3.5-liter V-6, usually a silky engine, wheezes a bit here as if under constant stress.

Road trips can be adventurous, but for younger passengers they can feel never-ending. Honda released a new commercial featuring its redesigned for 2012 eight-passenger Pilot SUV on a road trip. One of the kids sitting in the third row begins mimicking the bass line to Ozzy Osbourne’s “Crazy Train” and is joined by others until everyone spontaneously starts rocking out to the song.
