Honda updated its three-row Pilot SUV for 2019 with subtle styling tweaks, more standard safety features and an updated touchscreen system with a physical volume knob replacing the previous touch-only screen (woo-hoo!).

The Pilot has seating for seven or eight and competes in a class that’s being constantly updated against a fierce bunch of solid competitors, such as the Hyundai Palisade,’s Best of 2020 vehicle, and the Volkswagen Atlas, winner of Family Car of the Year award.
