As a premier San Antonio Honda dealership, we like to position ourselves somewhat as experts in all that is Honda. That way, when our customers have a question, we are more than ready to answer it. And believe us, we get a lot of questions about a variety of Honda related issues. We thought we would take this chance to help answer one of the big questions that we get quite often: What is the difference between the Honda CR-V and Honda Pilot?

While the difference between these two crossover/SUV vehicles may be obvious to those that really pay attention, many potential buyers are not always up on things. So the first thing we say when someone wants to know the difference between the Honda CR-V and Honda Pilot is that the Pilot is simply a much larger vehicle. It measures 15 feet, 11.4 inches in length and 6 feet, 6.5 inches in width. On the other hand, the CR-V is 14 feet, 10.3 inches in height and 5 feet, 11.6 inches in width. Obviously, these differences transfer directly to the room offered inside. The Pilot can seat up to eight and has maximum cargo capacity of 87 cubic feet. The CR-V seats five and offers 70.9 cubic feet of cargo capacity.

Naturally, the larger vehicle is going to be equipped with a larger engine – but the bigger size and engine means that it uses more gas as well. The Pilot is equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 engine that tops out at 25 MPG highway fuel economy.* The CR-V is fitted with only a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that gets up to 31 MPG on the highway.*

Those are the main stats to consider when pondering the difference between the Honda CR-V and Honda Pilot. Want to know more? Feel free to contact Benson Honda or stop down to the lot and get a personal feel for the two vehicles. You might just find an ‘X’ factor that we didn’t cover here.
