Family Car Ranked 2015 Honda Pilot EX-L 4WD better.
"The SUV feel of the 2015 felt more roomier for headroom and larger cargo with seats folded down in rear- the 2018 had to add three inches to its length to make up for the lost cargo space giving it more of an old station wagon style rather than an SUV and I’m coming from a Honda Odyssey- so I was ready for family SUV, not station wagon.
