2019 Honda Pilot Earns Top Safety Score from IIHS

The newly refreshed 2019 Honda Pilot has recently earned a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). This is the highest overall safety score awarded by the IIHS. To qualify for this coveted safety accolade, a vehicle must earn “GOOD” ratings in roof strength and head restraint tests as well as driver-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front and side tests. It also must achieve an “ACCEPTABLE” or “GOOD” score in the passenger –side small overlap test. A front crash prevention system rated “ADVANCED” or “SUPERIOR” along with a headlight rating of “GOOD” is also required.

The 2019 Pilot achieved top “GOOD” ratings in 5 out of 6 of the crashworthiness tests along with a “SUPERIOR” overall rating for the Collision Mitigation Braking System (part of the Honda Sensing® Package).

“The updated Pilot may have more aggressive styling to better match its true capability, but we also got aggressive on safety performance and driver-assistive features. IIHS rated Pilot’s front crash prevention system ‘SUPERIOR’, and that’s just one of many features included in Honda Sensing, now standard on all Pilot trims.” – Ray Mikiciuk, Assistant Vice President of Honda Automobile Sales.

In addition to award-winning safety, the newly revamped 2019 Honda Pilot offers enhanced exterior styling, a newly available hands-free power access tailgate, significant tech upgrades (including an available new Display Audio touch screen system with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration), and Honda Sensing® as a standard feature on all trim levels. The Honda Sensing ® suite of driver-assistive technology combines Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) with Forward Collision Warning; Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) incorporating Lane Departure Warning (LDW); Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS); and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) for 360 degrees of superior safety.

Additional safety enhancements include the blind spot information system (BSI), which is now standard on EX and above trim levels (previously available only on the Elite trim) and the Rear Cross Traffic Monitor, which is now standard on EX and above trims (previously only on Touring and Elite trims).
