New Honda Pilot for Sale near San Diego

While compact crossovers are both versatile and conveniently sized, their smaller size and limited seating capacity make them less suitable for larger groups. If you're in the market for a new three-row family mover and aren't excited about buying a minivan, Penske Honda Chula Vista has a compelling alternative. With abundant seating, ample cargo capacity, and a full suite of advanced safety features as standard equipment, the new Honda Pilot is an outstanding choice for National City and El Cajon families.

Interior Accommodations

The Honda Pilot is a three-row mid-size crossover with seating for up to eight riders. The attractive and inviting cabin features many soft-touch surfaces, gloss and matte accents, and high-quality materials throughout. The Pilot brings comfort and convenience to the forefront, with available amenities like three-zone automatic climate control, heated and ventilated seats, and a one-touch slide-and-fold second-row for quick access to the rear seats.

If you don't need the eighth seat, available second-row captain's chairs reduce accommodations to seven while improving passenger comfort and ease of access. When you need to prioritize cargo capacity for larger errands, the split-folding second and third-rows fold in a variety of configurations, offering up to 109 cubic feet of maximum cargo capacity.


While the Honda Pilot is a larger vehicle, it still fits conveniently in your garage and has no problem getting quickly up to highway speeds. Under the hood, the Pilot finds its motivation in a 3.5-liter V-6 (280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque) that pairs with a nine-speed automatic transmission with the option of full manual control.

All-wheel-drive comes standard on elite and Black Edition trims and is available on all supporting models.


Standard on the EX trim and above, the eight-inch Display Audio infotainment system features seamless smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Using voice commands or steering-wheel buttons, you can easily access essential features like hands-free calls and messaging, maps, streaming media, and more while maintaining focus on the road.

The Honda Pilot also offers numerous family-focused features. The available CabinTalk® PA system allows the driver to effortlessly communicate with rear-seat riders without needing to raise their voice. Additionally, the available Rear Entertainment System (RES) features a high-resolution video screen with HDMI inputs, a 115-volt power outlet, two sets of wireless headphones, and a Blu-ray™ DVD player. Children will also appreciate the fun How Much Farther?® app that helps visualize trip progress.

Advanced Safety

The Honda Pilot includes a full complement of Honda Sensing® advanced driver-assistance technologies as standard equipment on all trims. For no extra cost, San Diego-area drivers can enjoy peace of mind from driver aids like:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Lane Keeping Assist System
