Honda will show a concept of the next-generation Pilot at the Detroit Motor Show in January 2008. Although the Americans call it ‘midsize’ the current car is hardly small: at 4775mm long it’s over 200mm longer than a BMW X3 so expect the new car to be as big as the X5. However, that means the concept can offer seating for eight.

That styling is clearly more 4x4 than crossover, and in line with that Honda claims the next Pilot will have ‘all-weather, medium-duty off-road capabilities’.

The Pilot won’t be coming to the UK, but looks set to cost under $30,000 on the other side of the Pond. The current car starts at $27,595, which is less than £14k in our money. 

Also on the Honda stand will be the company’s production hydrogen fuel-cell car, the FCX Clarity, and the hybrid CR-Z concept, which looks set to make production.
