The Good And The Bad Changes In The 2019 Honda
It was just back in 2015 that the current model of the Honda
Pilot, which we currently see on the roads, was launched.
Therefore, it is not a very old car and hence, not many of us
expected an upgrade of the same to be offered by the company
any time soon. However, there have been rumors that the company
is planning a new 2019 model of the same with a few
technological changes and some facelift. The new model is being
considered as a midlife refresh model of the car.
Although not many changes are expected in the new model, it is
believed that the new 2019 Honda Pilot would be much faster
than the current model and even exceed the expectations of the
customers. There are going to be some changes in the design of
the car as well to give it a meaner and a more modern
appearance. Overall, the company plans on offering a better
value for money to its customers with this new launch.
Like ever new launch, there are some of the changes which make
us happy, while there are a few complaints that we have from
the same. On the basis of the sneak peek that we managed to get
of the car, there were some very good and attractive features
that we noticed in the car;
- The first thing that struck us was all the space that was
available in the car. The new car offers a huge cabin space and
is very comfortable for 5 people.
- A lot of new technology and equipments have been in added
to the car, making its controls automatic and very advanced.
- The company promises the car to be much faster than the
current car, and this is proved by the great acceleration that
the car offers.
- Another very good feature of the car is that it is a very
quiet car. When driving the same at very high speeds, there is
hardly any noise that the car makes, making it fun to ride in
However, there is one big problem that we noticed in the car
and that is with regards to the new touch screen controls added
to the car. They are extremely complicated to use, and hence,
in some ways, actually hinder the driving experience, rather
than adding to the fun of the same.
Some of the highlight features and changes in the new
2019 Honda Pilot are as follows:
- Just like it happens with all midlife facelifts in car,
this car too will be sharing its platform with the current
version of Pilot available in the market.
- A new running gear is expected to be added to the car, to
provide it more speed and power. With this new gear, the
problems that are experienced with the current Pilot, when
driving the same at high speeds, will get eradicated completely
and give a smooth and comfortable drive even at very high speed
- The shock absorbers in the car will be made better.
- The safety systems in the car will also be adjusted and
- Many new advanced technological features like the frontal
collision system, avoidance system, active lane keep assist,
lane departure warning, etc. will become a part of the standard
set of controls present in the car, making this new 2019 Honda
- An off-road version of the car would be launched in
addition to the on road version of the car. This off road
version will come with higher ground clearance, provided by the
revised springs, rims, and new tire sets. The skid pads in this
off road version would also be new and offer greater protection
to the car.
- As far as the exterior appearance of the car is concerned,
the new car will come with a new front end and the headlight
set would be slimmer. The grill will be smaller and a new
bumper would be added to the car. The rear will only be
receiving a set of tail lights.
- The car’s gear lever will most likely be discontinued and
would be replaced by a rotary knob. This will free up a lot of
space on the center console of the car.
- The V6 engine in the car would remain the same, however,
the transmission will be changed. The 6 speed and 9 speed
gearbox will disappear and they will be replaced by Honda’s
brand new 10 speed gearbox. This new gearbox is lighter and
faster than the old gearboxes. Since the gearbox is designed by
Honda itself, therefore, it would also help in reducing the
cost of the car as well.
2019 Honda Pilot Price and Release Date :
The price of the car is not expected to be increased by the
company, and it would continue to be available below $32000.
Thus, it will continue to be the cheapest car available in its
class. While the company has not announced any official release
or launch date for the car, but as per the rumors, you can
expect this car to hit the markets by the end of 2018.
