The Honda Pilot was introduced to the market in June 2002 as a 2003 model, the Honda Pilot has lived through three generations and almost twenty years in the market. After over two million units sold worldwide, the SUV will be reinvented for its fourth generation this year.

The Big changes are in store for the 2023 Honda Pilot, a midsize SUV with three rows of seating and a reputation for providing a calm and relaxing driving experience. While Honda isn’t about to mess with its family-friendly SUV formula, the 2023 Pilot is expected to have a more rugged-looking exterior to compete against rivals like the Kia Telluride, Hyundai Palisade, Ford Explorer, Hyundai Santa Fe, and Nissan Pathfinder.

The most popular Honda pilot in Nigeria is the 2011 and 2012 model, which is a favourite amongst families. The SUV has come a long way in the last few years hopefully, the 2023 Honda Pilot will renew its competitive position against other automobiles.

2023 Honda Pilot Exterior

In comparison to the current Pilot, the next-gen model appears to have a bolder and more striking design. The redesigned model should feature an upright front end with the nose set straight up and a flatter hood. The rear-end would have a contrasting styling with a steeply raked windscreen like the much smaller Toyota Venza, lending it a modern appearance.

  • Versatile and roomy interior
  • Smooth and compliant ride in most conditions
  • Better fuel economy than most rivals

There are lots to like about the Honda Pilot. The 2022 model is spacious, versatile, and comfortable, hitting key targets for a three-row family crossover. 

The Pilot is one of Honda’s three-row vehicles, the other being the Odyssey minivan. All indications point to the future Pilot remaining capable of seating up to eight passengers. The current Pilot has an appreciably spacious third row, so hopefully, the next iteration will maintain or improve on back-seat spaciousness, access, and amenities.

For the 2023 Honda Pilot, we expect a clean interior styling with a slimmer and simplified dashboard that frees the cabin of visual clutter. The steering wheel and the centre console would have a neat design and underline the minimalist styling.

To cater for tech-savvy customers, a 12.2-inch HD full-colour LCD instrument cluster and a brand-new touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and wireless Android Auto will likely be included.

2023 Honda Pilot Trims

Anticipating a redesign for 2023, Honda Pilot will be offered in five trim levels: EX-L, SE (or Special Edition), Touring, Elite and Black Edition. The EX-L, SE and Touring models have seating for eight, though second-row captain’s chairs which reduce capacity to seven are optional on the Touring. The captain’s chairs are standard for the Elite and Black Edition trims.

2023 Honda Pilot Buying Guide

For the 2023 Honda Pilot, we’d pick the EX-L trim because it possesses the Pilot’s most desirable features: power-adjustable heated seats, leather upholstery and three-zone climate control. However there are some downsides to this SUV: it has narrow third-row access, collision warning and adaptive cruise control settings are overly sensitive and it has a higher starting price than many other rival SUVs. It,s competitors are Toyota Highlander, Ford Explorer, Chevrolet Traverse, etc. You could choose a better SUV from its competitors.

2023 Honda Pilot Release Date

The release date for this automobile hasn’t been announced by Honda but it is expected to be released before the end of the year.

2023 Honda Pilot Prices

We expect the redesigned 2023 Honda Pilot to have a starting price of approximately 19 million naira ($38,000). While details remain scarce about the next-generation Pilot, it promises to be bigger (at least inside) and come with more standard and available features than the already well-equipped iteration.

2023 Honda Pilot Safety Features

Safety features like adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, automatic emergency braking, and automatic high beams will be included, among other features. Crash safety will remain a priority.


A lot has been done to upgrade this particular version of the Honda pilot but it may most likely not serve the Nigerian market as many Nigerians will opt for a Toyota SUV instead of the Honda Pilot.
