The redesigned and refreshed 2019 Honda Pilot is finally here. It brings with it a long list of upgrades to Honda’s award-winning 8-seat SUV.
The numerous changes include more aggressive exterior styling, an available new hands-free power tailgate, substantial powertrain refinements, major upgrades to available connected-car technology, an available new Display Audio touchscreen system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, and a volume knob.
The 2019 Pilot also adopts the Honda Sensing suite of advanced driver-assistive and safety technology as standard in all trims.
The 2019 Honda Pilot’s updated exterior reflects its off-road capabilities without losing what makes Pilot a perennial favorite in the midsize SUV segment. The front sports an aggressive new front fascia with standard LED low-beam headlights, while the rear features new taillights, a new bumper, and chrome accents.
The new front bumper incorporates larger fog light housings, fully integrated into the bumper, giving the 2019 Pilot a more aggressive look. A redesigned grille features a bold interpretation of the Honda “flying wing” grille design, with its chrome band extending above the headlights. Further emphasizing the off-road aggressiveness is a new “skid” garnish on the lower portion of the front bumper.
A hands-free power tailgate is available for the first time on Pilot on Touring and Elite grades. With the remote key fob in their pocket or handbag, the driver simply kicks their foot under a designated area of the rear bumper. The tailgate then opens without the owner needing to use their hands–very useful for occasions when their hands are full.
The 2019 Honda Pilot has a starting price of N11.4million.
