2019 brings a fairly mild refresh to Honda’s 3-row crossover. Can a more rugged bumper and some new software help keep the Pilot on top? Let’s find out.
Looking for a 2-row crossover with more off-road cred than the rest? Honda has resurrected the Passport name for 2019 for their ruggedized mini-Pilot. Here’s what Honda did: They took the 3-row Pilot, hacked 6 inches off the rear, widened the track, slapped wider tires on it and lifted it for better clearance. Honda’s tried-and-true […]
What ever you do, don’t all it a “Pilot Sport.” The new Passport isn’t an entirely new vehicle, but that’s actually OK. It’s closely related to Honda’s Ridgeline pickup truck and Pilot 3-row crossover, but Honda hacked about 6 inches off the back of the Pilot, removed the third row, jacked up the suspension an […]
We recently reviewed Honda’s refreshed 2019 Pilot and the all-new 2019 Subaru Ascent but what you may not have realized is that we had both at the same time.

The 2019 model doubled down on active safety bringing Honda Sensing to all trim levels, a standard V6 engine, new LED headlamps, and a host of other new features to help the Pilot tackle the refreshed Highlander […]
Thanks to an event called the Trail Trek Tour I had the opportunity to test a variety of every-day crossovers on some back-country trails in Virginia. The results were about as I expected but there were a few crossovers that did better than I thought. Why no Subaru? Why no Rogue? Why no X? The […]
Cheap and cheerful has long been the reputation for Honda’s smallest car in America and that continues in the latest incarnation. For 2019 Honda has continued their trend of moving their models up-market as well positioning the Fit as the “more premium” alternative in a way to the Nissan Versa Note or Ford Fiesta. Driving […]
Honda has resurrected the Insight again in their latest bid to become a dominant player in the hybrid vehicle segment. The Insight joins their Accord Hybrid and Clarity HEV/EV/PHEV lineup as the most efficient Honda sold in America. But there’s a twist. Instead of making a me-too car that copied the overall form of the […]
