Both models feature a lot of similar interior features, from tri-zone automatic climate-control systems to advanced infotainment systems. In each, too, you can add available systems that allow you to safely communicate with your passengers in the back through an intercom system.

The 2021 Honda Pilot offers added conveniences for you and your passengers. If your friend or child in the back wants to play a certain song, let them become the DJ using available CabinControl®. Using the app on their device, they can change songs from wherever they are sitting in the Pilot.

Plus, if the kids fall asleep in the back, you don’t have to turn of your music. Available multi-zone audio allows you to mute the speakers in the back while still jamming out up front. That way, you still play audio to keep yourself entertained without waking them up.
