"This year's Family Car of the Year is the Honda Pilot. With spacious seating for eight and a thoughtful blend of family-friendly features, Cars.com editors also picked the Honda Pilot as the winner of this year's $37,000 SUV Shootout). The Pilot has a nice balance of size, roominess, efficiency and versatility for even the busiest of families. Parents juggling life, work and multiple kids' soccer teams while trying to maintain a sense of sanity (good luck!) will have a true partner in the Pilot. Our editors appreciated the Pilot's large number of storage nooks to keep all the stuff families carry around well-organized. They also took note of the second-row seats that slide back and forth to increase the amount of legroom for either second- or third-row passengers. The second-row seats also tilt and slide forward easily for access to the third row. The Pilot's large cargo space features additional storage under the cargo load floor, and this SUV's great blend of available technologies will make life on the go just a little more pleasant. Despite its boxy appearance, which, by the way, contributes to an open-feeling cabin, the drive quality in the Pilot is a comfortable blend, without the body tilt and sway one would anticipate in such a tall SUV."
