  • 2018 Honda Pilot

    The engineers and designers at Honda are constantly making improvements to their safety systems, and each year, more and more of the drivers in Hampton Roads are discovering that these safety features have a lot to offer. This is certainly apparent in the case of the 2018 Honda Pilot, which has already been named a 2018 Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety! The Honda Pilot’s safety features leave little to be desired; whether you’re looking for advanced driver-assistance technologies or a solid foundation of standard protection, you’re sure to find it here.

Driver-Assist Technologies

You can take the stress out of your daily commute with these easy-to-use driver-assist features.

2018 Honda Pilot LED Headlights

Auto High-Beam Headlights: In the high-end Elite trim, the Pilot’s high-beam headlights activate and deactivate automatically in response to oncoming traffic. This is one Pilot feature that’s sure to be appreciated by your friends and neighbors.

2018 Honda Pilot Blind Spot Info System

Blind Spot Monitoring System: Both a blind spot monitoring system and a rear cross-traffic monitor come standard in the Honda Pilot’s Elite trim. The former uses small red indicators on each sideview mirror to alert you to the presence of traffic in your blind spot. The latter beeps to warn you if a vehicle or pedestrian is set to cross your path while you’re in reverse.

Honda LaneWatch: This system, standard on the EX trim level and up, lets you view your righthand blind spot on a small screen connected to a sideview-mirror-mounted camera. With this technology, you won’t have to turn in your seat to get a clear view of your surroundings.

Stability, Security, and Visibility at the Wheel

No amount of high-end safety technology can make up for sloppy handling, an unresponsive drivetrain, or an unstable chassis. Thankfully, all five of the Honda Pilot’s trim levels have been outfitted with a wide array of standard active and passive safety technologies, and all-wheel drive is available on every model.

  • Advanced Compatibility Engineering: The Honda Pilot’s frame has been designed with a clever combination of materials, allowing it to provide superior protection from the forces produced during collisions. The ultralight sections collapse while other areas maintain their rigidity, directing danger away from the cabin.
  • I-VTM4 All-Wheel Drive: Intelligent Variable Torque Management All-Wheel Drive isn’t often discussed as a safety feature, but when it’s active, you’ll enjoy superior control in a wide variety of scenarios and environments. With AWD, the Pilot’s Intelligent Traction Management functions in snow, sand, and mud!
  • LED Daytime Running Lights: Daytime running lights can go a long way toward improving your knowledge of the road, and they’re a standard feature on every Honda Pilot trim. On the EX and up, they’ve been engineered with bright LED bulbs.
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: Whenever you shift into reverse, you’ll be able to explore the space behind your vehicle using three distinct viewing angles: wide, normal, and top-down. Upon upgrading to the EX trim level, dynamic guidelines replace the system’s standard static guidelines.

Honda Sensing

Drivers who upgrade to the Honda Pilot’s EX or EX-L trims will have the option to upgrade with the celebrated Honda Sensing safety package—and it’s standard on Touring and Elite models. The features grouped into this collection use the Pilot’s onboard computer to help prevent collisions and keep you on the right path.

2018 Honda Pilot Collision Mitigation System

Collision Mitigation Braking System: The Pilot’s system of cameras and sensors keeps a constant watch on the road ahead, and in the event of an emergency, its Collision Mitigation Braking System can even stop your vehicle automatically. Additional protection is provided by a Forward Collision Warning, also part of the Honda Sensing package.

2018 Honda Pilot Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control: Making the most of conventional cruise control systems requires near constant attention, but Adaptive Cruise Control automatically adjusts your rate of travel in accordance with the flow of traffic. Just set your preferred follow distance and let the computer go to work.

2018 Honda Pilot Lane Keeping Assist

Lane Guidance: In Pilot models that have been equipped with Honda Sensing, a Lane Departure Warning, a Road Departure Mitigation System, and a Lane Keeping Assist System work together to help you stay on the road and in your lane.
