2019 Honda Pilot: better than ever, with a trim that is exclusive to Canada!

When your family has outgrown its current ride, you deserve a spacious SUV with room for everyone. The 2019 Honda Pilot fills that niche, and it provides you with today's best technologies and features.

A redesigned exterior features the flying wing grille with more aggressive design elements. Model choices include the budget-friendly LX and EX trims, the leather-clad EX-L Navi trim, and the more luxurious Touring model. For the Canadian market, Honda has released an exclusive Black Edition with darkened treatments and black-out elements.

Family drivers can enjoy the drive more with the Pilot's performance and capability in Bathurst, New-Brunswick

New Pilots have a potent V6 that puts out 280 horsepower. All-wheel drive is standard on all editions, and drivers will appreciate the help when snow is on the ground. An Intelligent Traction Management system comes with the nine-speed automatic on the Touring and Black Editions. This system has special drive modes for extra help during wintry weather and for steep grades.

An idle stop system has been updated for faster response to driver commands. It is a great way to reduce waste at red lights. Fuel economy is 9.3 L/100 KM in highway driving. Depending on your transmission choice, city fuel economy is either 13 or 12.4 L/100 KM.

Crash avoidance standard systems act as aids to the busy family driver. Cameras and radar keep a watch on the traffic and the road. If a Pilot strays from a safe trajectory, the lane departure system or road departure system can warn the driver and intervene to help. An automatic braking system can intervene to prevent a forward collision. During your daily commute, low-speed follow allows drivers to use Adaptive Cruise Control in busier traffic.

Taking care of the family is the pilot's biggest strength in Bathurst, New-Brunswick

This year Honda is introducing more features that can help families cope with modern life. A wireless charger is now on the menu. CabinTalk allows parents to speak with the kids on the back row. CabinControl provides an app that kids can use to regulate their temperature, choose a song, or operate the available entertainment system.

Standards include heated front seats and a touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. EX-L models have leather seats and an advanced touch screen. Touring models add ventilated seats and an available panoramic moonroof.

Your family can join in the fun when you test drive the 2019 Honda Pilot at Bathurst Honda.
