One more reason to choose the 2019 Honda Pilot

The 2019 Honda Pilot has been a fan favorite ever since its July release and for good reason. It’s packed with smart features the whole family will love and a refined, modern appearance that will stand the test of time. A few of our favorite 2019 Honda Pilot features include: 

  • CabinControl, an available smartphone app that allows passengers access to audio and temperature controls
  • a 26 mpg rating for highway driving
  • available wireless phone charger for easy onboard charging
  • 109 cu.-ft. of interior cargo space
  • ergonomically designed steering wheel controls
  • available rear entertainment system complete with a dropdown screen to play DVDs, video games, and more
  • available power lift gate for easy loading and unloading
  • available Apple CarPlay integration to send and receive text messages, make phone calls, play music, and access compatible apps directly from the Display Audio Touch-Screen

And then of course there’s the comfort of a leather-trimmed interior with available 2nd-row captain’s chairs for that luxurious feeling no matter where you sit. From the driver to the backseat passenger, the 2019 Honda Pilot was designed with every passenger in mind — drivers feel connected and in control, while passengers enjoy all the comforts of home.

So what could possible make the already superb Honda Pilot even better? A Top Safety Pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the highest rating the IIHS has to offer. Becoming a Top Safety Pick+ is no easy feat. A vehicle must receive top marks in multiple safety tests including: crashworthiness, headlight efficacy, and crash mitigation. To qualify for the award, a vehicle must earn the following:

  • GOOD ratings in driver-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests
  • ACCEPTABLE or GOOD rating in the passenger-side small overlap test
  • GOOD rated headlights
  • ADVANCED or SUPERIOR rating for its front crash prevention system

The 2019 Honda Pilot received GOOD ratings in five of the six crashworthiness tests, a GOOD rating for its headlights, and a SUPERIOR rating for its Collision Mitigation Braking System, which is part of Honda’s advanced suite of safety technologies known as Honda Sensing. And to make good news great, Collision Mitigation Braking System is just one part of the many features included in Honda Sensing, which now comes standard across Pilot trim levels. 🙂

So there you have it. The 2019 Honda Pilot is stylish, comfortable, connected, and incredibly safe. Stop by our Dublin Honda dealership and take a Honda Pilot test drive. If you have any questions about standard and available features, let us know. Our team is here for you!
