1. 2016 Honda Pilot
The redesigned Honda Pilot is one of the best choices among midsize SUVs. The Pilot comes equipped with a standard V6 engine that provides plenty of power. While the base model has a standard six-speed transmission, higher trims offer a nine-speed automatic transmission. Test drivers say that the six-speed transmission is the smoother and faster of the two, but nine-speed transmission models feature stronger acceleration. Fuel economy for the base model of this SUV is 19/27 mpg city/highway. Some reviewers say that the 2016 Pilot is well-balanced, but others noticed a tendency to lean around corners.
The interior of the Pilot is spacious and comfortable. Both the second and third rows are comfortable enough for adults to occupy during short car trips. The cargo area is a little less than that of competing vehicles, but test drivers were happy with it. The wide variety of cup holders and storage space for small items makes this car a perfect choice for an everyday go-to-vehicle.
