Honda Pilot

Three-row SUVs like the Honda Pilot and the Subaru Ascent are built for growing families like yours. There’s plenty of wiggle room for everyone and lots of comfort amenities to keep them all cozy.

Plenty of Room for Your Friends

Need a vehicle that can fit up to eight passengers? Both the Subaru Ascent and the Honda Pilot check that box. What happens, though, when you need to fit more than just the kids and their friends in the back seats?

If other adults are packing into your SUV, the Pilot will give everyone extra personal space. Its second row has almost two extra inches of shoulder room. The Honda Pilot also has over half an inch more shoulder room in the third row compared to the 2022 Ascent.

When you plan on packing up the car for a vacation, you'll even be able to fit more in the rear of the Honda Pilot thanks to up to 109 cubic feet of max cargo space. The Subaru Ascent, on the other hand, maxes out at 75.6 cubic feet.

In either of these SUVs, you'll be able to connect to your personal device and stream audio using Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. This lets you enjoy all your favorite music or listen to your favorite podcasts while driving.

Keep the Kids Busy

When the kids are full of energy and need some entertainment, you can opt for the Advanced Rear Entertainment System in the Honda Pilot. This system has a 10.2-inch screen, built-in streaming apps, two wireless headphones, and a Blu-Ray™ player.

If the kids fall asleep on the ride home, the Pilot lets you give them some peace and quiet. Its available multi-zone audio will let you silence the speakers in the back while you continue to clearly enjoy the audio up front.

Commanding the Whole Cabin

Only the Honda Pilot will also let you give your passengers control over the audio settings as well as the ability to adjust the climate system right from their smartphone using CabinControl®. It also lets your friends DJ from the back while you focus on driving.

It also offers CabinTalk®, so you can speak to rear-seat passengers through the wireless headphones and wired headphones in the third row, conveniently pausing the video and sound of whatever they’re watching.

Whether you're embarking on a long road trip or just taking the kids to school, you can drive with confidence knowing that your SUV was built to help keep you safe. Both the 2022 Honda Pilot and the Subaru Ascent come with some high-tech safety features.

Intuitive Safety Features

When it comes to the Honda Pilot, you'll have peace of mind with the standard Honda Sensing® suite, which comes with a host of safety features, such as:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Road Departure Mitigation System

The Subaru Ascent has several similar features thanks to EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology. However, it only has a normal rearview camera in comparison to the Honda Pilot's multi-angle rearview camera with dynamic guidelines.

Built to Protect

The Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) Body Structure is only used in the construction of the Honda Pilot. It uses specially engineered front crumple zones to absorb and divert collision force away from the cabin.
