The Pilot’s safety starts with the innovative design. The Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure utilizes a complex network of frame structures to absorb crash energy and distribute it away from the occupants sitting inside the cabin. It also minimizes the amount of force transferred to the other vehicle involved, keeping everyone on the road safer.
The passive safety features of the Pilot comprise a list of airbags, seatbelts, and locks. These vital features may go on unnoticed at first glance, but are there to keep you safe should the worst happen.
The Pilot includes a long list of active safety features that ensure the Pilot is performing at its best, even amid inclement weather and slippery road surfaces. These features help the Pilot maintain good tractive control, come to a complete stop more quickly in an emergency braking situation, and ensures the Pilot is clearly visible to other drivers on the road.
Standard on every model of the Pilot is a multi-angle rearview camera that allows drivers to check their surroundings before backing up. And with guidelines as a standard feature, and dynamic guidelines on the upper trim levels, drivers can maneuver in and out of tight spaces with ease. The camera includes three different angles, each offering an optimal view for different driving situations.
Honda Sensing comes standard on every model of the Pilot and is a suite of driver-assistive technology that helps drive drive more safely. The package includes systems that warn, prevent, and mitigate incidents on the road.
Standard starting with the EX model, the Blind Spot Monitoring System is designed to help drivers see more than using the mirrors alone. The system will issue a warning light in the side mirror when a car is detected within the blindspot range—about 10 feet from each side and about 15 feet back from the front doors. If a lane change is signaled when there is activity in the blindspot, the warning light will blink and an audible alert will sound, letting drivers know that it isn’t safe to change lanes.
