If you are thinking about a Midsize SUV with 3-Rows of seating and delivers space-efficient, capable versatility you are likely considering the 2017 Honda Pilot and the Chevrolet Traverse. Keep reading to review how these two competitors rate in pricing, safety, technology, comfort, and fuel-economy.
When it comes to U.S. News & World Report, the Pilot bests the Chevrolet Traverse in base model MSRP, Overall Rating, Critics' Rating, Performance, and Interior. When it comes to reliability, both vehicles scored a three out of five. The base model Pilot is powered by a V6 engine and comes well-equipped with features that include a USB port, push-button start, a multi-angle rearview camera, a seven-speaker audio system and Bluetooth.
In the Honda Pilot the Regular Unleaded V-6, 3.5-liter engine yields 19 miles-per-gallon in the city and 27 miles-per-gallon on the highway. The similar V6 engine in the Chevy Traverse only gets 15 in the city and 22 on the highway. The Traverse is also seven-hundred pounds heavier than the Pilot, which yields sluggish acceleration and show gear changes.

The Honda Pilot is also recognized for having class-leading front seats regarding comfort. The Pilot also provides a quiet and refined cabin for its occupants with a dash composed of soft-touch materials. The third row of seats was designed to fit adults.
These two SUVs are comparably sized, but the Pilot takes the win with a higher passenger volume, front shoulder room, front hip room, second-row head room, second-row leg room and second-row shoulder room. When it comes to cargo space, the Pilot has 16.5 cubic feet when all the seats occupied. Fold them all down, and your cargo room becomes cavernous with 83.9 cubic feet.
