The 2020 Honda Pilot has arrived and this stellar mid-size SUV returns following the naming of Honda as the 2019 Best SUV Brand by U.S. News & World Report**. The Pilot has been part of the Honda SUV lineup that has now won that distinguished award four years in a row. You had better believe that the honors and praise will continue rolling in with the introduction of the 2020 edition of this spacious three-row SUV!
The Honda Pilot has been a popular option in the mid-size SUV segment for many years, yet it faces stiff competition from the likes of the Kia Sorento and others. Premier Honda has compiled a comparison of the 2020 Honda Pilot and 2020 Kia Sorento so that New Orleans, LA, area families can determine which of these two SUVs better suits their lifestyle and budget.
See our comparison table and review and know that our Honda dealership is here should you have any other questions about the 2020 Pilot SUV or how it compares to other SUVs in its class.
It turns out that the 2020 Honda Pilot outshines the competition in a number or key areas, and it's often the same case when comparing this model to the Kia Sorento or other mid-size SUVs. First, Honda equips every 2020 Pilot with a 280-hp V6 engine that delivers capable performance and impressive efficiency. Its potent powertrain provides nearly 100 more horsepower than the 2020 Sorento base engine, along with far greater torque and towing capabilities!
You cannot only tow more with the 2020 Pilot LX than with the 2020 Kia Sorento L model, but you'll also have more cabin space for hauling passengers and cargo. The Honda SUV is simply larger and more spacious than Kia's Sorento, which means each occupant can enjoy a more comfortable journey.
The Honda Pilot's wider track and longer wheelbase grants occupants more space to relax and enjoy the ride and makes this SUV's cabin more versatile than the competition's. Not only does the Honda come standard with 8-passenger seating compared to the Kia's 7-passenger configuration, but it also provides greater headroom, hip room and shoulder room in every row!
If you rely on your new family SUV for transporting substantial cargo, then you'll appreciate the 2020 Pilot's rear cargo area. This SUV holds up to 16.5 cubic feet of gear with all rows of seats in the upright position, or as much as 83.9 cubic feet when you fold the second and third rows. In comparison, Kia's 2020 Sorento offers just 11.3 cubic feet of standard cargo volume and a maximum of 73 cubic feet.
Honda's 2020 Pilot is proven to be a highly capable performer in the competitive mid-size SUV segment and is even more impressive when you consider its refined cabin and stellar standard features. Every 2020 Pilot gets the full suite of Honda Sensing® driver-assistive technologies like Collision Mitigation Braking System™ Road Departure Mitigation System, Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Keeping Assist System to enhance safety and peace of mind.
