These numbers are pretty substantial on their own, but they’re augmented further by the small-item storage areas littered throughout the cabin. For example, the doors have large, deep pockets and the center console has configurable storage space, among other clever areas dotted around the cabin.

2020 Honda Pilot Seating Capacity

Like the cargo bay, seating varies based on which trim you pick. The LX, EX, and EX-L all feature eight-person seating, supported by two rear bench seats capable of seating three apiece. The Touring gets eight-person seating standard, but seven-person seating with second-row captain’s chairs are available. The Elite and Black Edition come standard with the second-row captains chairs, putting their capacity at seven.


We recommend scheduling a test drive. And once you’ve finished with that, get pre-approval on financing so you spend less time doing paperwork and more time in your new 2020 Honda Pilot.
