Honda crv or pilot?

Family with 2 small children.
Which is better? Prefer CRV because it is smaller, more affordable, has better mpg. However, is there a good reason to choose pilot instead? My commute on weekdays is around 50 miles.

Currently have an 2012 Accord with 90k. Want to sell it because of safety concern - maybe more prone to breakdown because of high mileage and age.

Thanks!

    Actually, you know what? You should just go to a Honda dealership and test drive each with your kids, and see which one you like best.

      They don't let kids drive the car

    Pilot. Got a 2019 pilot and love it so much. Definitely get that with Honda Autodrive technology (Honda sensing). Plus if you have family visiting from out of town you can accommodate 3 more people than CRV.

      As long as you tether strap the car seat under the seat you can move the second row in the front and get to the third row. I also forgot to say, pilot helps you carry the extra luggage when traveling if you fold the third row.

      What's your commute daily? Worried about gas consumption and insurance rate.

      I commute 10 miles everyday and get 23mpg. My insurance rate was same when I transferred it from civic to pilot through Geico.

      @Intel it does have slow speed follow, it will break, slow down and start the speed. But I believe it will not come completely stop and restart at that point you should take control.

    Even better. You can see how your kids' car seats fit in each one. :)

    In my experience, you can't go wrong with a crv.

    Have a 2013 Pilot and love it too. So much room! But it's true that the mileage sucks. If you're into car camping etc it's hard to beat. Don't need roof box to carry extra stuff.

    Had both a CRV and a pilot in the family growing up. Love both, CRV felt more like a kids car and the pilot felt more like a family adult car.

  • Pilot is what the vast majority of folks choose. Honda’s most popular car, in fact one of the most popular cars in the USA period, in terms of new car sales.

    There's Honda passport now and also the new Odyssey has more utility if you can take the looks.

    Read about problems with current Honda's turbo engines. Oil mixes with gas, loss of power etc.

    Why not Highlander? I own one and it's perfect especially when we go for long trips

    If you need more room for kids gear, pilot
