The Interior Features of the 2017 Honda Pilot Leave Little to Be Desired

  • 2017 Honda Pilot

    The engineers at Honda have designed the 2017 Honda Pilot to feel like a home away from home. Milwaukee area drivers who’ve been inside the Pilot are often struck by the variety and the quality of its interior features, and by the sheer spaciousness of its cabin. Whether you study the Pilot’s seating space, its expandable cargo bay, or its many convenience features, you’re sure to find plenty that excites you. What’s more, this one-of-a-kind SUV is priced affordably, meaning you can treat your family to the very best without breaking your budget. The Pilot is already beginning to take the Milwaukee metropolitan area by storm, and it’s not difficult to see why!

Interior Dimensions, Seating, and Comfort

The 2017 Honda Pilot has been designed to seat eight passengers, and each one of these seating positions is just as comfortable as the next! Headroom varies slightly depending on which trim level and roof type you select, but legroom, shoulder room, and hip room remain constant across all models. First-row passengers will enjoy 40.9 inches of legroom, while second- and third-row passengers can stretch out in 38.4 inches and 31.9 inches, respectively. Shoulder room in the Pilot is 62.0 inches in the front row, 62.0 inches in the middle row, and 57.6 inches in the rear row. Front, middle, and rear hip room are 59.1 inches, 57.3 inches, and 44.6 inches, respectively. In total, the Pilot offers 152.9 cubic feet of passenger volume. Equipping a moonroof decreases total volume to 151.7 cubic feet, but upgrading even further with a panoramic roof will bring your total size to 153.1 cubic feet!

Adjustable front seat-belt anchors and head restraints for all seating positions come standard in every 2017 Pilot trim, but the Pilot offers even more comfort features to those who decide to upgrade. The EX trim equips the Pilot’s driver’s seat with a 10-way power-adjustment function, and it even includes tri-zone automatic climate control. In the EX-L trim and above, this SUV’s suite of features also includes a four-way power-adjustable front passenger’s seat, one-touch second-row seats, heated front seats, and a leather-trimmed interior! The Pilot’s Touring trim takes customizable comfort to the next level by including a two-position memory function on your driver’s seat. Those who want to treat their passengers to the very best are encouraged to select the top-of-the-line Elite trim, which replaces the heated front seats with perforated, heated, ventilated front seats, complete with six different temperature settings. This trim also replaces the Pilot’s standard second-row seats with perforated and heated captain’s chairs.

The Pilot’s Cargo Bay and Storage Spaces

It’s no secret that the 2017 Honda Pilot can transport a great deal of cargo, especially when you take advantage of its 60/40-split rear bench seat. This feature, which comes standard on every trim level, allows the Pilot to offer up to 55.9 cubic feet of cargo behind its second row of seating! Pilot drivers who need even more space will also be able to lay their second-row seats completely flat, thereby extending their cargo bay to accommodate as much as 109.0 cubic feet of equipment. You’ll be able to switch between these seating configurations with relatively little effort, and even when you need all eight of the Pilot’s seats for passenger transport, you’ll still be able to carry up to 18.5 cubic feet of cargo.

Thanks to the inclusion of standard features such as cargo-area tie-down anchors, cargo-area bag hooks, and a cargo-area light, it’s easy to make use of the Pilot’s enormous storage bay. By upgrading to the EX-L or above, your array of standard features will also include a power tailgate. The Pilot’s designers have further increased its cargo space by equipping it with numerous smaller storage compartments. These include a lockable glove box, a multi-functional center console storage space, and a hidden storage well. Seatback pockets are included behind the passenger’s seat in the Pilot’s LX trim, and in every other model, they can also be found behind the driver’s seat.

Interior Technology Features in the Pilot

The Pilot’s expansive storage bay and seating space aren’t the only qualities that give it an edge over competing models in its segment. Drivers everywhere are learning to appreciate the incredible array of interior technology features that come standard, or are available as upgrades, for the 2017 Pilot. The Pilot’s LX trim comes equipped with a 5-inch LCD color screen, and every other trim offers a more customizable 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen. What’s more, the Pilot makes it easy to keep a full charge on all your electronic devices. Depending on which trim level they choose, drivers and passengers will also be able to access up to five USB ports and as many as three 12-volt power outlets. Some of the Pilot’s most impressive technology features, however, are only available in its EX-L trim or above. These features—the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System and a built-in rear entertainment system—are sure to please even the most impatient riders. The entertainment system includes a Blu-ray player, an HDMI interface, and a 115-volt power outlet that’s ideal for gaming consoles and laptops.
