2016 Honda Pilot Elite Premium Front Seats

Why settle for just another ordinary SUV for your family, when you can get the absolute best for them? That is our thinking here at Planet Honda. We want you to drive off our lot in the absolute best vehicle possible, and that SUV here just might be the 2016 Honda Pilot Elite. This vehicle has it all: luxury comfort, high-class performance, and rugged toughness. To prove just how outstanding this vehicle is, we stack it up against another top performer with the 2016 Honda Pilot Elite vs 2016 Kia Sorento Limited V6 comparison.

As you can see in the table above, both of these vehicles are powered by powerful V6 engines. While the 2016 Sorento has the advantage in horsepower, the 2016 Pilot has the torque advantage. Since the Pilot Elite trim only comes with AWD, we figured it was only fair to make the fuel comparison to the Sorento Limited AWD model. The Pilot has the clear advantage in fuel economy between the two AWD models, and it even gets better gas mileage than the Sorento Limited V6 FWD model! Both vehicles are capable of towing up to 5000 pounds, when properly equipped.
