Both the 2019 Honda Pilot and 2019 Honda Insight earned the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Top Safety Pick Plus award, earning “Good” ratings in several categories.

The Pilot, updated for the 2019 model year, received a new front crash prevention system as standard. Improved headlights – LED reflectors with high-beam assist earned a “Good” rating while the base headlights earned an “Acceptable” rating. The Plot also earned “Good” ratings in five crash test evaluations, including the new passenger side small front overlap crash test.

The Insight, redesigned for 2019 and based on the Civic, earns “Good” ratings in six crash test evaluations. It, too, comes with a “Superior”-rated front crash prevention system. The Insight’s LED reflector headlights with high-beam assist – the only type offered – earned a “Good” rating.

Crash tests evaluate the crashworthiness in several categories that include testing driver-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and passenger-side small overlap. For a vehicle to earn an IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus award, a vehicle must need an available front crash prevention system that earns an “Advanced” or “Superior” rating. The vehicle must also earn a “Good” rating for its headlights whether they are standard or an available option.
