The 2019 Honda Pilot has now joined the 2019 Honda Insight hybrid. Both vehicles have earned the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s Top Safety Pick+ rating.
Earning the prestigious rating is no easy task, vehicles must have advanced front crash prevention that earns an “advanced” or “superior” rating and earn the highest rating of “good” in numerous categories including small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests. Both Honda vehicles passed the toughest task of all- earning the highest rating for the headlight category.
The latest crossover now has a standard crash-prevention system, which was rated “superior” for avoiding collision in the 12-mph test and reduced impact in the 25-mph test. The headlights are available in LED, and come with high-beam assist.
One individual stated “Honda is becoming the standard for safety in the industry. Especially when they aren’t a high-cost luxury brand vehicle.”
