The 2016 Honda Pilot takes home the 2016 New York Daily News Autos Award for Family SUV. “With the best combination of space, power, fuel economy, and affordability, the 2016 Honda Pilot is our Family SUV winner in the 2016 Daily News Autos Awards,” writes Brian Leon for New York Daily News. The current Honda Pilot is available right now at Brilliance Honda of Crystal Lake. Find out more about what makes the Honda Pilot the top Family SUV this year!

Honda Pilot is Leading Family SUV

New York Daily News praised the 2016 Honda Pilot roundly, saying that even the base Pilot, which starts at just $30,145 MSRP* in the 2WD LX trim with a six-speed automatic transmission, offers an “impressive laundry list of features, including active noise cancellation, rearview camera, push button start, and Bluetooth connectivity.” The New York Daily News awards said the Pilot beat out other competitors like the 2016 Chevrolet Tahoe, 2016 Ford Edge, 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 2016 Kia Sorrento, and 2016 Subaru Outback.

The Honda Pilot comes with a 3.5L V6 in every trim level, which the New York Daily News called “silky-smooth”. They also pointed out that the Pilot earns 27 mpg on the highway** in front-wheel drive configuration, based on EPA estimates, which nearly matches the EPA estimate for the 2016 Toyota Highlander Hybrid – which is considerably more expensive.

“With seating for up to eight occupants and a massive maximum cargo capacity of 83.8 cu.-ft., the Pilot is as close to a minivan as you can get, but with the added bonus of all-weather capability and 5,000 pounds of towing capacity,” writes Brian Leon for the Daily News, continuing, “Sounds like a winner to us.”
