One of Honda’s proudest traits it is known for is safety. The Honda Pilot is one of the many Hondas that delivers on keeping you safe. Let’s see what makes the Honda Pilot such a safe vehicle and why you should consider it when purchasing your next car.

 

Body Structure

THe ACE Body Structure is an exclusive body design that enhances occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal collisions by distributing crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle.

 

Airbags

Every Honda is equipped with Advanced Front Airbags to help protect you in the event of a crash. Select models are equipped with SmartVent front side airbags and side curtain airbags with rollover sensor. However, it is important to remember that the most basic form of protection in any collision is the seat belt.

 

Top of the Line Features

A multi-angle rearview camera with dynamic guidelines gives you a better view of what’s behind you with normal, top-down and wide view. Lane Departure Warning (LDW) can detect unindicated lane departures from detected lanes. Alerts will flash and sound to help you correct your lane drift. Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) activates when your vehicle is detected drifting too close to the side of the road while driving 45-90 mph without a turn signal activated and vibrates your steering wheel. If you continue to leave the roadway, it is also capable of applying steering torque and braking to help keep your vehicle in the detected lane. Forward Collision Warning (FCW) utilizes a small camera on the top of the windshield to detect the presence of vehicles in front of you. If FCW determines you are at risk, it will activate audio and visual alerts, even applying brakes if you don’t respond in time. Lastly, the Collision Mitigation Braking System works with a millimeter wave radar sensor, as it brings your Honda to a stop when the system detects that a collision with a vehicle in front of you is deemed unavoidable. A warning sounds off and brake pressure is applied if necessary.

 

With these amazing safety features, the Honda Pilot should be in consideration for your next vehicle, especially if it is for a loved one. With the body structure, airbags and top features, you’ll never be safer in another vehicle.
