Honda is planning to start producing updated crossovers in 2019. The Pilot and HR-V will come with notable updates, such as changes in design and transmissions.
The Pilot’s 9-speed AT was not the best, but the manufacturer managed to update it for Elite and Touring trims. Among other changes are 4G Long-Term Evolution technology Wi-Fi, CabinControl app, hands-free access power tailgate, as well as CabinTalk™ in-car PA system. There is also an updated entertainment system that features BD. The touchscreen does not feature a sliding tool anymore, which was replaced with a volume knob.
Few changes to the exterior of the Pilot were also made, particularly, in the grille, which now comes with a silver bar. The first 2019 Pilot is going to see the light on 16 of July. So far, no pricing information is available.
As for the HR-V, it will also be updated. It will have the same bar for the grille as the Pilot. Two new trims will be presented, including Touring and Sport. There is Android Auto, a mobile application by Google as well as CarPlay by Apple. Improved sound deadening is also provided. The manufacturer improved the AWD system and CVT and added electric PAS.
One of the most interesting updates is Honda Sensing, which is an intelligent suite of reliable technologies. It includes CMBS, LKAS, RDM, and ACC.
