The Kia Telluride has a slight horsepower advantage compared to the Pilot. However, the torque output of both vehicles is the same. Hence, both of them offer similar performance figures considering the minute difference they have in this regard. That said, the Honda Pilot has a slight advantage over the Kia Telluride when looking at it from a driving perspective, thanks to its smooth-shifting nine-speed automatic transmission compared to the Telluride’s eight-speed automatic. Also, the Pilot’s lower curb weight gives it a slight power-to-weight ratio advantage over the Telluride.
The Pilot’s cabin is roomy and offers plenty of space for all the passengers. The materials used are of high quality and ensure a cozy and comfortable experience for passengers throughout. The base trim comes equipped with cloth-trimmed seats and is upgraded to leather upholstery along with power-adjustable and heated front seats on the higher trims. The base Pilot is equipped with an eight-inch LCD display, Bluetooth connectivity, Auxiliary Input Jack, a seven-speaker sound system, Radio Data System (RDS), Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, SMS Text Message Function, SiriusXM®, and HD Radio™, to name some of them. Now, it is worth noting that the Telluride offers plenty more features in this regard giving it a slight upper hand in this regard. However, the overall quality of these components is not as refined as the ones offered in the Pilot.
In terms of safety, the 2022 Pilot offers numerous safety features as standard across all trims.
Overall, the Pilot is more stable, and concrete compared to the Telluride making it a better option of the two.
