The EX-L adds a front passenger seat that offers 4-way power adjustability as standard. In the Touring and Elite, all driver’s seat power adjustments are included in the Smart Entry system. The system stores a pair of user profile seat settings – one for each of the two key fobs that come standard with the Pilot. Heated front seats are standard in the Pilot EX-L, Touring and Elite trims. The Elite trim also includes ventilated front seats.

Second Row Seating
The Pilot’s roomy second-row seating is designed for maximum comfort and versatility, with a 60/40 split and folding design that makes it easy to accommodate passengers or long cargo. The new Elite trim has two luxurious second-row captain’s chairs that can fold to accommodate cargo. The captain’s chairs have fold-down padded inboard armrests, and each seatback offers multiple reclining angles and six inches of fore-aft travel for greater second- and third-row passenger comfort. A center console with storage tray and a pair of cup holders is positioned between the captain’s chairs. The console is constructed of a robust material and is designed with a low profile to allow access to the third-row seats from between the second-row. In the Pilot Elite, heated second-row seats are standard.
