2015 Chevrolet Traverse vs. 2015 Honda Pilot Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Pilot than in the Chevrolet Traverse, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Traverse offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda Pilot, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Chevrolet Traverse is somewhat more expensive than the Honda Pilot. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Traverse will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Honda Pilot.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Traverse is about the same width as the Honda Pilot. If you go with the Chevrolet Traverse, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Honda Pilot.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Chevrolet Traverse transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Honda Pilot.

Handling
The Chevrolet Traverse has a larger turning radius than the Honda Pilot, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Honda Pilot is clearly the choice over the Chevrolet Traverse for pulling heavy loads. The Chevrolet Traverse has a little more horsepower than the Honda Pilot.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Traverse and the Honda Pilot. With the Chevrolet Traverse, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Honda Pilot.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Traverse comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda Pilot.
