2021 Honda Pilot vs. CR-V: Features & Starting Price

When comparing the 2021 Honda CR-V vs. Honda Pilot on value, the CR-V is more affordable. That’s because it’s a crossover, which is smaller and less powerful than a full-sized SUV. Even still, the 2021 Honda CR-V and 2021 Honda Pilot have a lot of overlap when it comes to standard features:

  • Honda Sensing®
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera
  • Bluetooth® connectivity
  • Available Apple Carplay® and Android Auto™
  • Available AWD System

As we mentioned earlier, the CR-V is a bit more affordable than the Honda Pilot, but you will have access to more powerful engines, roomier dimensions, and a longer list of optional features on the Pilot. To top things off, the Honda Pilot is reasonably priced within the full-sized SUV segment.
