Vehicle Comparison Rundown

The Honda Pilot and the Honda Odyssey are two different vehicles made by Honda. The Pilot is a midsize, three-row SUV, and the Odyssey is a minivan. Despite the fact that they are built on the same platform, there are many relevant differences. The Pilot comes with front-wheel drive and offers all-wheel drive as an option. The Odyssey comes with front-wheel drive only.

Not surprisingly for these platform mates, both the Honda Pilot and the Honda Odyssey come with the same single engine choice, a V6 with 280 horsepower. In terms of power, there is absolutely no difference.

But when it comes to interior space, there is a major difference, and it’s all in favor of the Honda Odyssey. Where the Pilot gives you 83.8 cubic feet with the second- and third-row seats folded, the Odyssey goes way beyond, with 134.5 cubic feet behind the front row. Nothing beats a minivan for space utilization!

The Honda Pilot and the Honda Odyssey are closely related under their skins. If the form factor of a three-row SUV combined with the option of all-wheel drive suits your needs better, go with the Pilot. But if you need the awesome amount of space for both people and stuff that only a minivan can provide, the Odyssey is the answer.
