One of the Honda Pilot's main rivals is the Kia Telluride

which is also one of the Toyota Highlander, GMC Acadia, Mazda CX-9, and a few other vehicles.

Across trim levels, the Telluride and Pilot have a lot of visual and mechanical similarities.

Both are excellent vehicles because of their efficiency and tech-rich, comfort-oriented

which help make lengthy journeys seem shorter. Because it checks too many boxes,

 the Telluride three-row C-SUV has consistently given the Pilot a terrible time of it.

The Honda Pilot redesign for the 2023 model year, on the other hand, effectively puts it somewhat 

ahead of the Telluride thanks to great handling, a pleasant cabin, and useful storage places.
