Does the Honda CR-V Have Third-Row Seating?

2018 Honda Pilot 3rd Row Seating

The 2018 Honda CR-V has almost everything that a person could want, but if you’re looking for a vehicle with third-row seating, then you’ll have to widen your search. The CR-V’s seating capacity only allows for five passengers. Luckily for our friends and neighbors in Central Illinois, celebrated Honda vehicles like the 2018 Honda Pilot have the seating capacity and cargo space you’ll need to please the whole family! Experts everywhere have praised the Pilot’s utility. Those at Kelley Blue Book have written, that “unlike many of its competitors, the Pilot offers generous room behind its third row for cargo, meaning you can haul eight people to the grocery store, get a week’s worth of groceries, and drive back, all in the same vehicle.”

Third-Row Seating in Honda’s Vehicles

The generously apportioned Pilot offers 16.5 cu. ft. of cargo space behind its third row, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t highlight its interior flexibility, too! Although the Pilot can seat up to eight passengers, its adaptable, collapsible seating makes it easy to strike the perfect balance between seating space and cargo capacity. When both the third and second rows of seats are laid flat, you’ll be able to take advantage of up to 83.9 cu. ft. of cargo space. With all seats in their upright positions, the Pilot’s baseline LX trim level offers 152.9 cu. ft. of passenger space.

Of course, the Honda Pilot isn’t the only vehicle in Honda’s lineup that’s capable of seating eight passengers. The 2019 Honda Odyssey is no less compelling an option for drivers who want to maximize their cargo space and seating capacity. Right from the start, the Odyssey offers fold-flat second- and third-row seating, and in its EX trim level and up, a Multi-Function Second-Row Center Seat makes it easy to travel with eight passengers. This minivan offers 38.6 cu. ft., 92.0 cu. ft., and 158.0 cu. ft. behind its third, second, and first rows, respectively.
