Key Differences between the New Honda Odyssey & Honda Pilot Models

The main differences between Honda's Odyssey minivan and the Pilot SUV revolve around their body styles. While both models are family-focused, they approach the family vehicle segment quite differently, as you'll discover here.

The Odyssey boasts classic features of a modern minivan, including power-sliding rear doors and a ride height that's convenient for ingress and egress of passengers of all ages. This minivan offers plenty of exclusive features that you won't find on other minivans, not even on the Honda Pilot SUV.

Honda's new Odyssey is the only model around that offers the automaker's CabinWatch®, CabinTalk® and HondaVAC® in one vehicle. CabinWatch® helps drivers keep an eye on the kiddos in the second and third rows; this unique feature is like a rearview camera, but for the van's interior! The CabinTalk® feature complements CabinWatch® by allowing Odyssey drivers to speak directly to backseat passengers via the van's rear speakers.

Thanks to the Odyssey-exclusive HondaVAC®, cleaning up messes inside your family's minivan is simple. The built-in vacuum can extend throughout the three rows of the cabin, which means you'll never have to wheel out your household vacuum when it's time to pick up spills.

Honda's other three-row vehicle, the Honda Pilot, is a mid-size SUV that features more rugged styling and greater ground clearance than the Odyssey minivan. Like Honda's minivan, the Pilot SUV offers seating for up to eight in a spacious and plush cabin.

The 2021 Honda Pilot is ready for rough terrain, thanks to its greater ground clearance than the Odyssey minivan. With its higher ride height comes a more commanding view of the road, too. However, both models feature large glass and windows that provide excellent visibility.

No matter which of these three-row vehicles you choose for your family, you'll have dependable and efficient performance on your side, thanks to Honda's 3.5-liter i-VTEC® V6 engine. This proven Honda V6 engine develops a healthy 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque for hauling passengers and cargo with confidence.

If you're looking for the added traction and confidence that comes with all-wheel drive (AWD), you'll want to opt for the Pilot, as the Odyssey doesn't offer this drive type. The Pilot is also capable of light off-road adventuring!

Now that we've covered the basics, which model are you leaning toward for your family? There's more to explore and consider, such as the exterior design and interior volume of these two fine Honda automobiles.

Which is Bigger, Pilot or Odyssey?

At first glance, you may not be able to tell which vehicle is larger, the 2021 Honda Odyssey or 2021 Honda Pilot. Since both models come standard with three-row seating, you can imagine that these vehicles' overall size is quite similar. However, inside, you'll find that the Odyssey minivan is slightly larger, both in passenger volume and maximum cargo capacity.

Motorists and their families who would like to maximize seating space and cargo volume may prefer the new Odyssey. The Pilot SUV is not far off, though, and still boasts plenty of interior volume for large and growing families.

The preferred way to see the roomy and versatile 2021 Honda Pilot and Odyssey models is with a back-to-back comparison, so visit your local Honda dealer, Walker Jones Honda! Reach out to our sales staff and we can help set up a tour and test drive of these family-friendly models.

Exterior Design

If you're looking for a new family vehicle that sports sleek styling inside and out, the Honda lineup is for you. Both the 2021 Pilot and Odyssey models feature streamlined exteriors that help them cut through the wind and provide impressive fuel efficiency for their respective vehicle segments.

For those motorists seeking a sportier and more rugged look, the Pilot SUV is here for you. Still, its design isn't over the top like some other SUVs. While the Pilot is the sportier of these two models, it doesn't offer one of the Odyssey's key standard features: rear sliding doors.

When you're searching for a new three-row vehicle that's family-friendly in both its features and its pricing, you can't go wrong with the 2021 Honda Odyssey or 2021 Honda Pilot. Thanks to their seating for up to eight, a standard suite of Honda Sensing driver-assistive technologies and quality interiors, these Honda models continue to be top choices for families around Blackshear, Georgia, and far beyond.
