Honda Pilot Safety
When you’re running errands or packing up for a trip to the beach, a midsize SUV is an excellent choice to carry all your cargo and your entire family. For drivers in Greenacres and Wellington, the 2018 Honda Pilot offers all that in an SUV that earns high marks year after year.
When it comes to your family, nothing is more important than safety. So, how safe is this respected SUV? Braman Honda of Palm Beach knows how this is when choosing an SUV. That’s why we put together this review of the 2018 Honda Pilot safety features.
Honda Pilot Safety Built In
A midsize SUV should be built around the idea of keeping families safe. That’s what the body of the Honda Pilot was designed to do.
It has an Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) Body Structure that’s made to absorb the energy from a collision and distribute it away from passengers.
Intelligent airbags line the interior to further protect passengers. There’s Advanced Front Airbags and SmartVent® Front Side Airbags, plus Three-Row Side Curtain Airbags with a Rollover Sensor to give the entire interior all around protection.
Keeping everyone securely strapped in is another part of the design. The driver and front passenger are held in place with a Front 3-Point Seat Belts with Automatic Tensioning System, while children in the back can get more safety with Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH). The LATCH feature is available in both the second and third row seats.
Honda Pilot Driver Assistance
While you’ll have plenty of protection in the event of an accident, the 2018 Honda Pilot has lots of driver assistance technology to help you avoid one.
The Honda Sensing® system brings together features that look out for you like Adaptive Cruise Control to monitor the car in front of you and adjust your speed if traffic slows down or gets too heavy.
Your SUV can also come to a complete stop when it senses an incoming objection with the Collision Mitigation Braking System™.
There’s protection on the sides too. Both the Lane Keeping Assist System and Road Departure Mitigation System can see if you drift out of your lane, alert you, then help steer you back into place automatically.
When you’re trying to change lanes, the Honda Pilot helps you there too. With the Blind Spot Monitoring System you’ll know when there’s a car next to you and when the coast is clear.
You’ll have coverage behind you with the Multi-angle rearview camera and Cross Traffic Monitor acting as radar and letting you know when cars are approaching while you’re backing up.
Honda Pilot Connect Assistance
Technology in the 2018 Honda Pilot helps you both avoid accidents and gets help when one occurs.
Download the HondaLink® app to your smartphone and sync it with the infotainment system. Once you’ve done so, you’ll not only be able to lock, unlock, and start your car with your phone, but you’ll get Enhanced Roadside Assistance.
In the event of an accident, HondaLink® sends out an Automatic Collision Notification, so you’ll get help as soon as possible.
