Honda has unveiled the updated 2019 Honda HR-V and Pilot crossovers, which are going to arrive starting next month. Both the 2019 HR-V and Pilot arrive with updated styling and some tech upgrades.
The 2019 Honda Pilot gets more aggressive exterior styling with styling cues that are borrowed from the rest of the Honda lineup. The bigger changes to the 2019 Pilot include a new hands-free power tailgate, a refined 9-speed automatic transmission, 4G LTE in-car Wi-Fi, a larger Rear Entertainment System with Blu-Ray and streaming video capability, Honda’s CabinTalk in-car PA system and a new Display Audio touchscreen system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration.
The 2019 Pilot also comes standard with the Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies. The 2019 Pilot will go on sale July 16.
The 2019 Honda HR-V not only gets a refreshed exterior, but also introduces two new trim levels: Sport and Touring. Inside there’s a new Display Audio system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. The 2019 HR-V also gets updates to its standard CVT transmission and available Real Time all-wheel drive system. Plus the interior should be a bit quieter thanks to more sound deadening features and the steering should provide more feedback thanks to the addition of variable-ratio electric power steering.
The 2019 HR-V is also available for the first time with the Honda Sensing safety suite. The 2019 HR-V goes on sale July 24.
