TCC’s Bottom Line

Subtle upgrades make the 2019 Honda Pilot a must-see for three-row crossover shoppers. The 2019 Kia Sorento is a right-sized, well-priced three-row crossover SUV for those who can skimp a little on third-row space. The 2019 Nissan Pathfinder has value and interior flexibility as its assets, but this crossover SUV is ripe for a redesign.
