Keep reading to learn more about the Pilot’s many prime safety features!

Standard Safety Features

Among the Pilot’s safety offerings, a number of features and technologies come standard across the full Pilot lineup, including:


Honda Pilot Rearview Camera

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: When the Pilot is shifted into reverse, its standard multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines goes into action, providing live images to show drivers exactly what is behind them. This camera system displays three different angles: normal, top-down, and wide.

Honda Pilot Vehicle Stability Assist

Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control: The Pilot’s standard VSA system with traction control helps enhance vehicle control while the Pilot is accelerating, cornering, braking, and maneuvering and helps reduce dangerous oversteer and understeer. This system applies brake force independently to the vehicle’s wheels while managing the ignition, throttle, and fuel systems to keep the Pilot in its intended travel path.

Honda Pilot Honda Sensing

ACE Body Structure: Honda’s proprietary Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure underpins all new Honda vehicles, including the Pilot. This innovative body design is designed to absorb and deflect frontal collision energy and also help reduce the amount of force that is transferred into the cabin. Additionally, ACE body structure can help more evenly distribute the crash energy that is transferred to other vehicles involved in a collision.

Honda Pilot Interior

Advanced Airbag System: The Pilot’s standard airbag system includes smart features to help protect vehicle occupants, including SmartVent front side airbags and three-row side curtain airbags with rollover sensors. SmartVent airbags are designed to deploy in a way that minimizes risk to smaller passengers, while the side curtain airbag rollover sensors determine the rate and roll of a rollover accident and will accordingly deploy the side curtain airbags.

Safety Upgrades

Other top-of-the-line safety and driver-assist features are offered in the higher Pilot trim levels, including:


Honda Pilot Collision Mitigation Braking System

Collision Mitigation Braking System: The Collision Mitigation Braking System monitors traffic conditions ahead of the Pilot and works in tandem with the Forward Collision Warning feature. If an unavoidable crash is detected, the CMBS can apply autonomous braking to reduce the severity of the impact or even help avoid the collision altogether.

Honda Pilot Road Departure Mitigation System

Road Departure Mitigation System: The Pilot’s Road Departure Mitigation System is designed to identify road markings and detect when the Pilot is about to unintentionally leave its travel lane. If the vehicle begins to leave its designated lane without the activation of the proper turn signal, this system can apply steering torque and braking power to correct the unintentional lane departure.

Honda Pilot Blind Spot Information System

Blind Spot Monitoring System with Cross Traffic Monitor: Helping Pilot drivers change lanes and operate in reverse more safely, the vehicle’s Blind Spot Monitoring System employs sensors located in the rear bumper to warn the driver when an approaching vehicle is detected. When the Pilot is shifted into reverse, the Cross Traffic Monitor also warns of approaching vehicles.

Honda Pilot Lanewatch

Honda LaneWatch: The Honda LaneWatch blind-spot display system utilizes a camera integrated into the vehicle’s passenger-side exterior mirror. When the driver activates the right-hand turn signal to change lanes or a make a right turn, this system delivers live images of the adjacent travel lane to show whether or not the coast is clear.
