I just replaced an older Pilot with gray interior with a new one with a black interior. Black looks so much sharper than the gray. The front row does tend to get a little bit warmer when left in the sun with black, but not a lot hotter than the gray.

If you have kids, black is much easier to maintain than gray.

I found that black is the way to go, especially if you are wearing jeans a lot. Jeans have a tendancy to release their blue dye and this is easily seen on light coloured leather. I was shocked to see all the blue dye when I washed my black leather after the first 10000km( using lexol ph balance soap for leather) , it came up on the white cloth i was using. I was tempted to go for the tan interior with black paint cause i like the contrast, but cooler heads prevaled.

I have the tan interior and it all seems good. The leather has been easy to keep clean. I haven't noticed any dirt creasing into it. I have heard several things about the grey showing dirt really bad though. The one thing I do not like about the tan though is the tan step in area. That area shows a lot of dirt and even though I don't think I make much contact with that area, I clearly must. It's usually the only thing I see dirty in my Pilot. I wish it would have been black to match the carpet.

For the black interior and the heat, do you guys have tinted front windows and still notice the hot seats?

I went from tan leather in my 04 Pilot to black leather in my 11 Pilot. Strongly recommend the black. However, I imagine the color of the exterior might be a consideration. I've got the white exterior so the black leather looks great.

I can't put a finger on it, but there is something more upscale looking about the black leather interior in these cars. The black is a very nice deep shade of black and the surrounding plastic bits just seem to look better in black as well.

If they had offered Mocha exterior with the black interior, I would have been all over that.

My only issue with the black interior is how monochrome it looks. I kind of like the contrast of the tan and gray interiors. Otherwise, it's pretty easy to live with - doesn't really look dirty and really doesn't get as hot as I was expecting (for some reason).
