Before you decide on your next new SUV, make sure that your first choice comes equipped with all the safety features you’ll need to feel comfortable behind the wheel! The engineers and designers at Honda have always outfitted their vehicles with top-notch safety technology, and the 2018 Honda Pilot is certainly no exception to this trend. In this year’s model, advanced, automated amenities come together with a full suite of dependable active and passive features, and as a result, the Pilot has earned the IIHS’s coveted Top Safety Pick designation. Drivers in the Capital Region can explore the Pilot’s safety features by reading on below, but there’s really no substitute for a hands-on experience. Once you’ve seen enough, you’ll want to take the Honda Pilot for a test drive!

Honda Sensing

The features collected in the Honda Sensing safety package use a futuristic combination of artificial intelligence and motion sensors to deliver a smoother, safer driving experience—even when your awareness is lacking. It’s available as an upgrade on the Pilot’s EX and EX-L trim levels, while it comes standard on Touring and Elite builds. Below, we’ve highlighted a few of the Honda Sensing package’s most exciting technologies.

2018 Honda Pilot Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control: If you’re tired of switching in and out of cruise control on your commutes, then you’re sure to appreciate the Pilot’s Adaptive Cruise Control technology. Just set your preferred follow distance with Low-Speed Follow, and the system will adjust your speed automatically in response to light traffic.

2018 Honda Pilot Collision Mitigation System

Collision Mitigation Braking System: The Pilot’s Collision Mitigation Braking System detects obstacles in your path and alerts you to their presence; if its warnings are not sufficient, it can even bring your vehicle to a halt automatically!

2018 Honda Pilot Lane Keeping Assist

Lane Control: When you travel in the Pilot, you’ll enjoy the benefits of its Road Departure Mitigation System and Lane Keeping Assist System. Both work to detect the lane you’re traveling in and keep you centered there.

Active and Passive Features

Every 2018 Pilot trim level comes equipped with a full suite of active and passive safety features. Many of the highlights can be found in all of Honda’s modern vehicles, and they form a solid, dependable foundation for the more advanced technologies described elsewhere.

2018 Honda Pilot AWD and Ace Body Structure

Advanced Compatibility Engineering: Every Pilot has been engineered using a combination of rigid and flexible frame materials. This combination, known as ACE body structure, allows the Pilot to absorb and distribute the force of a collision in ways that keep you and your passengers safer.

2018 Honda Pilot Rearview Camera

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: Guidelines come standard with the Pilot’s multi-angle rearview camera, itself a basic feature on all trim levels. On EX models and up, its functioning is improved with dynamic guidelines that move as you turn the steering wheel.

2018 Honda Pilot Stability Assist

Vehicle Stability Assist: Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control makes the Pilot more responsive on difficult terrain. Even when you’re going around a sharp curve, this system can ensure stability by adjusting the rotation of each wheel.

Driver-Assist Technologies

The following driver-assist technologies are the perfect complement to the Pilot’s integrated, automated safety systems. Each works to enhance your knowledge of the road and your ability to respond to threats.

2018 Honda Piot Honda Lanewatch

Honda LaneWatch: A small camera located on your right-hand side-view mirror grants unprecedented visual access to your blind spot. Whenever you activate your turn signal, you’ll be able to view a live feed of this area via an easy-to-see screen! It’s standard on the EX.

2018 Honda Pilot Blind Spot Info System

Blind Spot Monitoring System: The Pilot’s Elite trim comes equipped with a blind spot monitoring system and a rear cross traffic monitor. Working together, these systems use audiovisual alerts to keep you aware of activity in your periphery.

2018 Honda Pilot LED Headlights

Auto High-Beam Headlights: The Pilot’s automatic high-beam headlights can detect the presence of oncoming traffic and adjust the brightness of your headlights accordingly. They come standard on the high-end Elite trim.
