2014 Honda Pilot vs. 2014 Subaru Tribeca Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Pilot than in the Subaru Tribeca. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Honda Pilot and the Subaru Tribeca.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Honda Pilot, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Subaru Tribeca.

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 Honda Pilot is somewhat more expensive than the Subaru Tribeca. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Honda Pilot and the Subaru Tribeca have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Pilot is much wider than the Subaru Tribeca, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Honda Pilot takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Subaru Tribeca.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Honda Pilot and the Subaru Tribeca are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Honda Pilot has the same turning radius as the Subaru Tribeca, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Honda Pilot will do just as well as the Subaru Tribeca, since they have about the same towing capacity. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Honda Pilot and the Subaru Tribeca.

Utility
The Honda Pilot offers greater seating capacity than the Subaru Tribeca, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Honda Pilot has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Subaru Tribeca.

Warranty
The Honda Pilot comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Subaru Tribeca.
