Priced at $40,200, the Honda Pilot midsize SUV is the most expensive vehicle on the list of popular cars for moms. The Pilot, which ranks fifth overall, actually came in second place among moms with two or more kids, largely attributable to its ability to carry up to eight passengers and 18 cubic feet of cargo. Lower the third row, and you’ve still got spacious room for five, and 47.7 cubic feet of cargo. Its 250-horsepower/3.4-liter V-6 engine is paired with a five-speed automatic transmission to offer fuel economy that ties with the less-expensive Subaru Outback at 18 city, 25 highway, and 21.3 combined miles per gallon.
