2018 Honda Pilot Elite Specs

The range topper of the Pilot range is the Elite, which offers several comfort-biased features, like the second-row heated captain’s chairs that reduce seating to seven and reduce overall cargo volume, and the ventilated front seats and heated steering wheel. But other features also add greater levels of refinement, like the panoramic sunroof, HD radio, and the full LED headlights. Available only in all-wheel drive, the Elite’s greatest weakness is again the nine-speed automatic gearbox, which ruins an otherwise impressive package that, at this specification level, begins to rival entry-level premium SUVs.
