For most of the buyers, we would recommend the EX trim. It balances in-cabin luxury, safety features, and technology. For an increase of $2,880 over the base model, you will get a bigger infotainment system with Apple Carplay and Android Auto and conveniences like push-button start, electric folding second row. If you plan to use your Honda Pilot in the snow, equip it with the optional AWD system that comes with an intelligent traction management system.
