    The 2018 Honda Pilot Safety

    The 2018 Honda Pilot is s stylish three-row SUV with impressive capability on the road and safety and technology features inside to please everyone in the family. Every model demonstrates a deep commitment to safety with both active and passive safety features as well as technology features throughout the five trim levels to help drivers drive better and more safely.

Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) Body Structure

The Pilot’s commitment to safety is built directly into its structure. ACE body structure utilizes a network of frame structures to absorb crash energy and distribute it away from the passengers inside. It also minimizes the force transferred back to the other vehicle involved, keeping everyone safer.

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera

Every model of the Honda Pilot comes equipped with a multi-angle rearview camera that allows drivers to check their surroundings before backing out. And with guidelines as a standard feature and dynamic guidelines as an upgrade on the upper trim levels, drivers can maneuver in and out of tight spaces even more easily.

  • Normal View – To check for a clear path behind the Pilot before reversing
  • Wide View – Best view for detecting pedestrians or vehicles that may be approaching the rear of the Pilot
  • Top-Down View – Optimal angle in a parallel parking situation

Honda LaneWatch

Standard on the EX, EX-L, and Touring models, Honda LaneWatch utilizes a small camera mounted on the passenger-side mirror to display a live video feed of activity going on in the driver’s blind spot. The video displays on the 8-inch Display Audio touchscreen inside and allows drivers to see up to four times more than using the mirrors alone.

Honda Sensing

Available starting with the EX model and coming standard on the Touring trim, Honda Sensing is a suite of driver-assistance technology that helps drivers drive more safely when behind the wheel. The package includes systems such as:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System – Sensors detect when an oncoming vehicle is dangerously approaching the Pilot and can engage the brakes in order to mitigate any impact.
  • Road Departure Mitigation System – If the Pilot rolls over lane lines or road markings, this system can employ the brakes and steering to keep it from going off the road.
  • Forward Collision Warning – If an oncoming vehicle or other object is dangerously approaching the Pilot, this system warns the driver to take swift action.
  • Lane Departure Warning – If the Pilot begins to stray out of its lane on the highway, this system warns the driver to steady the steering.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System – If the driver doesn’t respond to the Lane Departure Warning, this system can nudge the steering to bring the Pilot back into the center of the lane.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control – Drivers select their desired speed and distance interval with the vehicle ahead and this system balances between them, keeping the Pilot within the natural flow of traffic.

More Safety Throughout the Trim Levels

As drivers explore the upper trim levels, they’ll discover more features and technology geared toward safety—from giving drivers quicker and more seamless access to the Pilot with Smart Entry to a navigation system that makes getting lost in unfamiliar areas a thing of the past.
