The experts at Top Speed have already dubbed this year’s model as “the best Pilot ever,” and we think the Honda Pilot’s cargo space dimensions speak for themselves! This full-size SUV features three rows of easily-configurable adjustable seating, and when you take advantage of this capability, you’ll be able to accommodate just about anything. Even when you’re travelling with a full carload of passengers, you’ll enjoy access to a generous storage area behind the third row! We’ve broken down the Honda Pilot’s cargo volume measurements in the table below.

Honda Pilot Seating and Ease-of-Access
Although the Pilot’s storage bay is anything but compact, only those who master the Honda Pilot’s seating and convenience features will be able to make the most of this SUV’s expansive interior. The following standard and available features will help Detroit’s drivers access and maximize the Pilot’s cargo storage space.
Flat-Folding Seats: The Pilot’s third row bench seat can be folded flat with the floor to create a stable cargo storage space with an area of 46.8 cu. ft.—and since it’s 60/40 split, you’ll be able to strike the perfect balance between storage and passenger space. When you need access to even more storage space, simply fold or remove your 2nd-Row Seats and move your 1st-row seats toward the front of the cabin. When all is done, you’ll be able to store up to 83.9 cu. ft. of cargo.
One-Touch 2nd-Row Seats: The Pilot has been blessed with an exceptionally roomy third row, but that’s not the only reason that this SUV will be an instant hit with your passengers. One-Touch 2nd-Row Seats—included on the EX trim level and up—automatically move to accommodate those entering or exiting the back row of seating. Although Touring and Elite models replace the Pilot’s standard 2nd-Row Bench seats with 2nd-Row Captain’s chairs, these retain one-touch functionality.
A More Comfortable Ride: Although they usually won’t help you store more cargo, the Pilot’s available Power-Adjustable, temperature-controlled, and Leather-Trimmed Seats will make every adventure more enjoyable. A Heated Driver’s Seat with 10-Way Power Adjustment comes standard on the EX and up, while a 4-Way Power Adjustable Front Passenger’s Seat and Leather trim have been included on the EX-L. Touring models offer Heated 2nd-Row Captain’s Chairs, and front-seat ventilation is standard in the fully-upgraded Elite.
Power Tailgate: Filling up your cargo bay becomes a whole lot easier when you can open your rear door with the press of a button! A Power Tailgate has been included on the EX-L trim level, and those who upgrade one step further to the Touring trim will be able to take advantage of Hands-Free Access technology. With the latter, simply wave your foot under the Pilot’s rear bumper to open up your cargo bay.
