The 2019 Honda Pilot receives its first significant update since it was all-new three years ago. In this video, we dig deep into those changes to explain how they make the Pilot an even better choice as a 3-row family crossover.
There are styling changes, but they are subtle. The grille features a large chrome lip similar to what you’ll find on the Civic or Accord. There are also LED headlights now, and the rear lighting elements were redesigned.
The bigger news is feature content. Honda Sensing accident avoidance tech is now standard on every trim level, which includes a forward-collision warning system, automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist and adaptive cruise control.
On the infotainment front, the 2019 Pilot thankfully gets a revised touchscreen interface. Not only is there now a volume knob, but the greatly improved and more user-friendly menu software found on the Accord and Odyssey have migrated to the Pilot as well. Some of the Odyssey’s family-friendly features, such as Cabin Talk, also make the journey over to Pilot.
