To trade-in my 2012 Pilot for a 2016 or keep the old Pilot?

I have a 2012 Honda Pilot EXL with RES that is in great shape but has 78K miles, the Honda dealership offered me $22K to trade it and with $5K I still own on it, my equity is about $17K.

I have managed to negotiate a new 2016 Pilot at invoice ( 2016 EXL with RES). Given the new tires I need to replace on my current Pilot, 80K service and overall miles but also a new 5 year loan, what do you think will be a better choice for me? To keep the car or trade it now for the 2016 model?

    Going to the 2016 model you will notice a huge improvement in handling and features. We just went from a 2011 to the 16 and love it!

    Thanks dougbthom for your response, all these negative reviews scared me a bit but I think I will go for the 2016 model.

    78,000 miles is nothing for a Honda!
