Exterior Design

The 2023 Honda Pilot is a large, three-seater SUV. Compared to previous versions of the Pilot, this year’s model is longer and more rugged on the exterior. It also looks a little more like a typical SUV than a minivan. On the exterior of the 2023 Pilot, you’ll find a long front hood, 20-inch alloy wheels, flared fenders, and raised roof rails. If you upgrade to a more premium trim, you can instead get 18-inch wheels with all-terrain tires along with a new color option, Diffused Sky Blue.

Interior Features

The 2023 Honda Pilot interior is very spacious, with enough seats for either seven or eight people, depending on which trim you select. There’s also plenty of cargo space, with 22.4 cubic feet in the cargo area, which you can expand up to 113.7 cubic feet by folding down the passenger seats. Along the dashboard, you’ll find digital instrumentation built with materials designed to reduce glare. Finally, Honda includes its new “body-stabilizing” seats, which help to reduce fatigue on long drives, along with seat heaters to keep you comfortable in colder weather.
