2018 Honda Pilot – Immaculate Design:

It is quite interesting to note that the 2018 Honda Pilot is a combination of a minivan and a SUV vehicle. An upgradation from the existing model, this vehicle will include some changes for the better. When compared to the boxy and tough looks of 2017 Honda Pilot, the new vehicle has more rounded shapes along the corners, taking away the boxy look.

The new rounded appearance is more in sync with the contemporary design trends and has similarities with the CR-V model. Other prominent features in the vehicle are also taken from previous Pilot models. The headlights in the car are LED accented. The 3-spoke wheels in the car give it an extremely bold yet stylish look. The center crease line going down by the side of the SUV imparts great style factor. The model has refreshed appearance for the design and newly shaped sheet metal and looks exactly like how a SUV should be.

Along with the exteriors of 2018 Pilot, the interiors have been decked up well in state-of-the-art manner. You will be amazed by the technological wonders that are implemented in the interiors of the car. The materials that are used in the making of the seats in the SUV are of high quality and quite durable. The shiny-piano black trim in the model makes the interiors look stylish. The push button start is still there keeping the front passengers and the drivers comfortable and saves good amounts of space at the same time. There are 3 rows of seating arrangements in the vehicle, which can accommodate 8 passengers. There is little space for added storage too.
