Honda has completely redesigned its midsize SUV, the Pilot, for 2009. The popular people hauler is new from the ground up and offers buyers a car-like driving experience and more interior room than last year. Honda left no stone unturned when it updated the Pilot; everything from the engine to the design theme has been tweaked. But did the company go far enough? Does the new Pilot take to the skies or is it grounded?

2009 Honda Pilot Review
Check out the 10 Best Fast & Furious Cars http://vid.io/xqwj
If the 2009 Honda Pilot proves anything, it's that things have changed over
at Honda. One look at the new Pilot's zany front grille announces that the
company has unapologetically embraced vehicular embellishment. The overall
shape is only slightly less boxy than that of the Jeep Commander, and there
are so many creases and character lines in the sheet metal that the new
Pilot reminds us of 4,609 pounds of origami.
