The 2019 Honda Pilot has been named a Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS), the highest rating given. The honor recognizes the Pilot’s unwavering commitment to safety as a family-friendly three-row SUV. Comfortable and spacious for both passengers and cargo, the Pilot has features such as tri-zone climate control and an available rear entertainment system. With available AWD and an impressive towing capacity, it’s poised for adventure. In addition to these, the Pilot’s design, features, and driver-assistive technology makes it one of the safest SUVs on the road.


The Pilot earned the top scores for crashworthiness on the driver’s side, passenger’s side, roof strength, head restraints, seats, and more. It’s innovative body design absorbs crash energy and distributes it away from the occupants sitting inside the cabin, keeping everyone safe from collision that could come from all angles. The Pilot also earned the highest “Good” rating for headlights and a “Superior” rating in the crash avoidance and mitigation category for front crash prevention, thanks to the Honda Sensing suite of driver-assistive technology.
