TCC’s Bottom Line

Subtle upgrades make the 2019 Honda Pilot a must-see for three-row crossover shoppers. The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe is a convincing crossover SUV with room for families and cargo. The 2019 Nissan Pathfinder has value and interior flexibility as its assets, but this crossover SUV is ripe for a redesign.
