2016 Honda Pilot just got its first look at the 2016 Honda Pilot from the 2015 Chicago Auto Show.

The 2016 Pilot has a rounder, somewhat sleeker design than previous pilots that were fridge-like and upright. It boasts even more interior space than previous models. Seating is spacious and comfortable in the first two rows, but the third row would only accommodate adults for a short distance.
