Honda models are trusted for their incredible performance and advanced features, but if you’re looking for a style that has enough room to take everyone and everything you need along for your Redmond and Woodinville ride, then the 2020 Honda Odyssey or Pilot may be just what you need. While these cars may differ in many ways, they do offer unique drivability, technology, and safety features to meet your needs. Find out which model is right for you with this 2020 Honda Pilot vs. Honda Odyssey comparison with the experts at Honda of Kirkland.

2020 Pilot vs. Odyssey: Performance Capabilities

When it comes to delivering powerful performance, the Pilot and Odyssey demonstrate almost identical fuel economy performances with the same 280-hp 3.5L Direct-Injected i-VTEC® V6 engine under the hood. However, despite similar engine configurations, the Odyssey comes with a 10-speed automatic transmission with Shift-By-Wire (SBW) and Paddle Shifters across all trim levels, while the Honda Pilot SUV can be equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission (6AT). Pilot drivers can also opt for a 9-speed automatic transmission (9AT) with Shift-By-Wire (SBW) and Paddle Shifters if they choose the Pilot Touring trim or above. In addition, the Pilot lineup also offers drivers the choice to upgrade their 2WD drivetrain to Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ All-Wheel Drive (AWD).
