The 2019 Honda Pilot is a three-row SUV that is spacious and supremely comfortable inside for everyone in the family. And with agile handling, a powerful performance, and available AWD, the Pilot is poised for adventure throughout all four seasons. It’s the Pilot’s design, safety features, and driver-assistive technology that makes it one of the safest SUVs on the road. Named a Top Safety Pick+ from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety, the Pilot is a well-rounded and family-friendly SUV.
Safety in the Pilot starts with the innovative body structure. The Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure utilizes a complex network of frame structures to absorb crash energy and distribute it away from the occupants sitting inside the cabin. It also minimizes the amount of force transferred to the other vehicle involved in the collision, keeping everyone on the road safer.
The Pilot includes an extensive list of passive safety features including seat belts, airbags, locks, and more. These features may go on unnoticed at first glance but are there to keep you safe when you need them most.

Every model of the Pilot comes equipped with a multi-angle rearview camera that allows drivers to check their surroundings before backing up. With the camera, drivers will be able to see small objects or obstructions that would be too low to see using the mirror alone. And with guidelines as a standard feature, and dynamic guidelines on the upper trim levels, drivers can maneuver the Pilot in and out of tight spaces with ease. The camera has three different angles, each offering an optimal view for different driving situations.
Normal View – Check for a clear path behind the Pilot before reversing.
Wide View – With the wide view, drivers will be able to see cars, pedestrians, and cyclists who may be approaching the rear.
Top-Down View – The top-down view is especially helpful when parallel parking.
Every model of the Pilot comes equipped with the Honda Sensing suite of driver assistive technology, designed to help drivers drive more safely. The package includes systems that warn, prevent, and mitigate impacts and incidents on the road.
