2019 Honda Pilot
2 of 13


Winner: 2019 Honda Pilot

The base price for the Honda Pilot is $31,450, a savings of almost $1,000 over the Mazda CX-9’s $32,280 base price. It costs about $1,800 to add all-wheel drive to both vehicles.

The Pilot and CX-9 base models are similarly equipped; both include Bluetooth and a rearview camera. The Mazda also includes a 7-inch touch screen, which is an available option on the Honda. However, the Honda’s V6 engine out-powers the Mazda’s turbocharged four-cylinder engine.

At the top end, a Pilot Elite costs $48,020, while a CX-9 Signature costs $45,365. Here, both vehicles include all-wheel drive, premium leather upholstery, and additional driver assistance features.

Due to the Pilot’s lower base price, this category goes to the Honda.
