I’m gonna get a 2021 Honda Pilot elite soon and i kind of want to make it from a 7 seater to 8.
not possible to have the ceiling mounted middle belt on an Elite since it has the panoramic glass roof.I'm not saying it is or isn't possible. But to have seat belt for the middle passenger requires cutting a hole in your roof liner to access the bolt holes (if they are even there) to have a shoulder strap with mounting bracket installed. Or replace entire roof liner.
Just know that the bench seat in the back isn't adult friendly. I'd say if your needs don't exceed 4 adults and 3 children. You might be ok. I say might because if your talking road trip when you need to haul luggage for 4 adults and 3 children, you might have a problem.Well actually the 2nd row 3 seater isnt needed, but optional. I don’t need it. As long as I have a 7 seater I’m fine
