2019 Honda Pilot Safety Rating

The 2019 Honda Pilot has been named the Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The honor is the highest safety rating given by the institute and recognizes the Pilot’s deep commitment to safety. As a family-friendly three-row SUV, the Pilot is incredibly spacious inside with comfort and technology throughout the trim levels. It also offers drivers power and capability on the road, including available AWD and an impressive towing capacity. Thanks to its design, features, and driver-assistive technology, these features combined make it one of the safest SUVs on the road.


The Pilot earned the top scores for crashworthiness on the driver’s side, passenger’s side, roof strength, head restraints, seats, and more. The Pilot features an innovative body design that absorbs crash energy and distributes it away from the occupants sitting inside the cabin, keeping you safe from collisions that could happen from all sides. The Pilot also earned the top “Good” rating for headlights and a “Superior” rating in the crash avoidance and mitigation category for front crash prevention, thanks to the Honda Sensing suite of driver-assistive technology.
