2016 Honda Pilot vs 2016 Volvo XC90
One of the most exciting things about the 2016 model year so far has been the announcement and unveiling of the 2016 Honda Pilot. Completely overhauled and redesigned for the 2016 model year, the all-new Pilot looks like nothing Honda has ever created before. Streamlined and sophisticated, the full-size Honda crossover offers something previously unavailable from the brand. We wanted to show you exactly why we think the new model is so exciting and one of the best choices in the market by comparing it to one of its competitors, taking a closer look at the 2016 Honda Pilot vs 2016 Volvo XC90. The Volvo crossover was just recently overhauled as well, having entered its second generation in 2014.
Advantages of the 2016 Honda Pilot
Just take one look at the table above and you can tell that the all-new 2016 Honda Pilot is a superior vehicle to its Volvo counterpart, the 2016 XC90. Let’s start at the top with highway fuel economy. While the advantage isn’t extremely sizeable or anything, the Pilot does operate utilizing 0.7 fewer litres per 100 kilometres, meaning you’ll save quite a bit of change at the gas pump annually. But if that minute advantage isn’t quite enough for you, fear not. The Honda PIlot’s true advantage comes in the form of capacities and space.
All utility vehicles, whether standard SUVs or a new crossover, have a pretty good amount of space behind the backseat. They’re generally a bit roomier than a regular car’s trunk, considering one buys a utility most often for just that, its utility. The 2016 Honda Pilot can accommodate just under and extra 3 cubic feet of space behind its back seat than the 2016 Volvo XC90. Drop the second and third row seats and you open even more space, an advantage of 23.5 cubic feet in fact. And if you’re packing the crossover with passengers, they’ll have an extra 51.8 cu. ft. of space to get comfortable in, which is an incredible advantage.
