I work at a honda dealer. Both are good trucks. The CRV is a 4 cylinder with 5 seats and the Pilot is a V6 and can hold 7 people. The gas mileage on the CRV is better then then Pilot too. Also the CRV is less expensive. The Pilot will tow more then the CRV. It all depends on what you plan on doing with the truck.

I would say the Pilot is more versatile. It seats more people, has more cargo space, and looks nice. The CR-V is also nice, smaller, less cargo space (since the redesign). The CR-V will give better mileage, the Pilot has more power. If you are a parent and take kids to soccer, I would say the Pilot is the better choice. If you are single, or married no kids, the CR-V is fine. It really depends on what you are wanting it for. Consumer Reports gives both vehicles high marks.

It really depends on what you are looking to do with the cars. I have a CR-V and my parents have a Pilot. As the people before me have stated, the CR-V does have a 4 cylinder, which basically means that you really CAN'T pull anything. Although they say you can, you are more likely to ruin your engine before anything else. If you are getting it for towing, get the Pilot.As far as seating/room goes, if you have a larger family or older kids, then get the Pilot because the backseat is not friendly for 3 adults in the CR-V. The third row is not conducive for anyone over 5 feet 6 inches in the Pilot and the cargo space in the Pilot is nill when all three rows are up. But when the last row is folded down, there is a ton of cargo room, much more than the CR-V.What type of driving are you planning on doing? If you are going to be doing mainly city driving, then the CR-V is your better bet. If you are going to be doing more highway driving, then get the Pilot. The CR-V is so light it gets blown around on the highway and if it is really windy, it can sometimes be difficult to drive.If you are looking at gas mileage, the CR-V does better than the Pilot. I usually get 25-27 miles per gallon on the highway and 21-23 miles city. The Pilot usually gets 17-19 city and 20-22 highway. Not much of a difference if you ask me, but if you are looking to cut costs, go with the CR-V.Safety ratings on both vehicles are the same all the way around.Cost - CR-V is less expensive, and you can usually get a high end CR-V for the cost of a low-mid level Pilot.I have not had any recalls on the CR-V, but there was a recall on the Pilot, but it did not affect our model. We have had very few problems with the cars, maybe a front end alignment and I got a screw in my tire. Otherwise, the normal maintenence and nothing else.Good luck - either car is worthwhile and I will be purchasing another Honda when its time for a new car!

Again this will depend on your lifestyle and needs. The CR-V is smaller, gets better fuel economy, is easier to park. If you go around urban areas a lot and don't need the extra cargo and carrying capacity of the Pilot, it may be your better bet. I'd consider it as a step up for my wife who drives a Civic---for additional room. The Pilot is larger, carries more people/cargo, has towing capacity. It is also costlier. If you have a large family, this would be a better bet.
