1400 × 912
The midsize crossover segment is becoming ever more competitive. This means the 2019 Honda Pilot has a lot to prove to earn the trust of consumers who have plenty of other options. With that in mind, how does it compare to the competitors?

Let’s begin with a comparison to the 2019 Toyota Highlander. Both the Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander are three-row crossovers and popular choices among buyers looking for a minivan alternative. The Honda Pilot, though, stands out in several ways. For one, it has both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, while the Toyota Highlander does not. The former is also slightly roomier with 16.5-cubic-feet of cargo space, versus 13.8-cubic-feet for the Toyota Highlander.

Another competitor is the 2019 Chevrolet Traverse. In the technology department, the Honda Pilot holds an advantage. A Motor1 article cited lack of touchscreen responsiveness with the Chevrolet Traverse. The same article also gave the Honda Pilot the nod with its redesign for the 2019 model. This includes a refreshed styling in the head- and taillights. The grille is also more pronounced as is the front fascia. As for the design of the Chevrolet Traverse, the author says the exterior and interior “don’t feel as nice as Honda’s.”

How about the Honda Pilot and Nissan Pathfinder? For starters, the Honda Pilot has One-Touch second-row seats and road departure mitigation that come as standard. Neither are available for the Nissan Pathfinder. The Honda Pilot also has a rear entertainment system available as standard, whereas this is only available in the upper trims for the Nissan Pathfinder.
