Whether it’s access to expansive cargo capacity or advanced convenience features, the Chevy Traverse delivers more than the Honda Pilot. Drivers have more room for the gear they need thanks to a large rear cargo area that can accommodate 23 cubic feet of cargo with the seats in place. In comparison, the Honda only offers 18.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seat. Chevy makes it easy to enlarge that space thanks to the power folding rear seats available on select trims. Drivers simply push a button and the seats tuck away by themselves. The Honda doesn’t offer power folding rear seats.
