An observer who must have been deeply and rightly impressed by the Honda Pilot Elite 2019 had this to say about it: “This three-row crossover SUV’s exceptional blend of utility, comfort, and safety makes it as essential to family life as Wet Wipes, Costco, and maybe Total Wine.” Hilarious, right? Yet, it is so true if you look paid closer attention to the Honda Pilot Elite.
It is big, big enough to haul a nuclear family and lend a lift to the neighbor’s family as well. It has space, style, and technology that won’t let you down. You have all the reasons to love this car.
The Elite uses a luxury-grade 3.5-liter V-6 engine that develops 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. It comes in trims including LX, EX, and EX-L Touring and Elite. The X, EX, and EX-L drive on 6-speed automatic transmission as standard but Tourings and Elites come with 9-speed automatic.
Front-wheel drive is also standard. You can upgrade this to all-wheel drive which will cost you around $1,900. All-wheel drive is standard in the Pilot Elite.
Modern luxury cars must wear some hefty tech specs for them to compete appropriately in their space. The 2019 Pilot comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto on EX and trims above this.
What you get in regards to infotainment is largely dependent on what you trim you choose. Among outstanding tech wares, you get from the Elite is CabinControl (a downloadable smartphone app that allows passengers to control the Pilot’s audio system) and CabinTalk which enables the driver to talk to backseat passengers through headphones when they’re watching a movie, or through the rear speakers.
This is a large car meant to give 7 to 8 passengers a comfortable ride. With several bins and pockets scattered throughout the cabin and a highly configurable center console you are at ease in the Pilot Elite.
Honda designers thoughtfully placed spots for different size drinks, notepads, pens, and cell phones all over the cabin. The idea here is super comfort while on the move and this is achieved in considerable style.
