Currently the Pilot is Honda’s largest SUV, seating seven people using three rows of space. To cut down on size, it’s reported that Honda will remove the third row and reducing wheelbase to create a bridge between the mid-size CR-V and full-size Pilot. Initially, it was suspected that Honda would leave the Pilot name alone, much like Hyundai does by making no distinction in the nomenclature of the three and two-row Santa Fe. That was shot down by a separate investigation made by Car and Driver
, which dug through patents submitted to the United States Patent and Trademark Office to find that Honda had filed the name "Passport" into the system on December 2nd, 2016.
