Price of Brand New Honda PilotN1.3 – N10 Million 

The Honda Pilot is one of the most luxurious SUVs in Nigeria as of now. It started humbly and has wormed its way into the Nigerian’s heart and mind. The Pilot’s V6 has a sporty sound and plenty of power and a sporty sound, equipped with a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Honda is not the easiest three-row crossover to drive, because its good size can make it feel heavy when cornering. The 20-inch wheels that come on the upper trims impede on ride quality a bit, but they enhance the Pilot’s otherwise dorky appearance. 

Ford Edge

Price of Brand New Range Rover SportN3.4 – N35 Million
