Honda Pilot vs. Honda CR-V

  • If you need to pack in a certain number of passengers without lacking in cargo space, you'll be happy with the Pilot, which seats seven or eight. The CR-V can only seat five, but it does provide generous cargo space as well.
  • In the Pilot, you'll have more horsepower than you will in the CR-V, but fuel economy will fall a bit beneath the CR-V's.
  • Cargo volume in the Pilot maxes out at 83.9 cubic feet, versus the CR-V's 75.8 cubic feet, which is still substantial for a five-seater.
  • If you want to tow your small boat or trailer, the Pilot gives you 3,500 pounds of maximum towing, while the CR-V can offer you 1,500 pounds of towing.

Honda CR-V vs. Honda Pilot

  • The CR-V may not seat up to eight, but it can give you better gas mileage than the Pilot and still have the option of AWD.
  • Despite having less cargo space than the Pilot, the CR-V still maintains generous cargo space, plus it is priced lower than the Honda Pilot.
  • The classification of each vehicle varies, with the Pilot being a midsize crossover with three rows, and the CR-V is a compact crossover with two rows.
  • The CR-V is shorter and narrower than the Pilot without sacrificing space, which may be better if you're not entirely confident parking a larger vehicle.
