Honda’s popular midsize crossover has long been a Consumer Guide Best Buy, and revisions to the freshened 2019 Pilot only serve to make it better.
As this is a “refresh” and not a redesign, the Pilot platform and appearance haven’t changed much. Oh, the grille is different – taking on what Honda deems as a “more rugged” demeanor to reflect Pilot’s admittedly good off-road prowess – but the vehicle still looks and drives like a Pilot … which is just fine.
Class: Midsize Crossover
Dates tested: 8/17/2015 – 8/24/2015
Miles driven: 235
Fuel used: 12.9 gallons
When it debuted for 2003, Honda’s Pilot made its mark as a car-based “unibody” midsize SUV in a segment dominated by heavier, clumsier truck-based entries. Since then the tide has turned, and the Pilot has found itself facing some stiff competition.
Honda unveiled the long-awaited third generation of its midsize three-row SUV at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show. The 2016 Honda Pilot is redesigned with a slightly sleeker, more aerodynamic look than its boxy predecessor, and a host of new safety, convenience, and technology features.
