These 2017 Honda Pilot safety features exist to keep you in control and ensure the Pilot stays stable, even in West Michigan winters.
Vehicle Stability Assist: Standard on the Pilot, Vehicle Stability Assist (with traction control) senses when the tires of your SUV have lost traction or don’t quite match up to where your steering wheel is directing them, adjusting engine output and brake force to counteract understeer, oversteer, or a loss of traction.
Advanced Braking Systems: The brakes are one of the most important safety features, and between the Pilot’s brake assist, anti-lock brakes, and electronic brake distribution, it ensures that your foot on the brake pedal delivers an immediate response, slowing and stopping the Pilot.
Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: Each Pilot incorporates a multi-angle rearview camera as a standard feature; just shift into reverse and its display shows up on your dash with your choice of normal, top-down, and wide-angle views with guidelines. Now you can fit into a tight parking spot or line up the trailer with ease.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System: An under-inflated tire is hazardous on any vehicle, but that goes double on an eight-passenger SUV like the Pilot. The tire pressure monitoring system alerts you to any low-pressure tires so they can be inspected for leaks and re-inflated for dependable performance.
Daytime Running Lights: Standard on each 2017 Pilot, Daytime Running Lights are on whenever the vehicle is on. While standard headlights illuminate the road ahead, these lights make the front of the Pilot brighter, making it easier for other drivers to spot and avoid.
Honda Sensing: The available Honda Sensing package brings safety and driver-assist features including Lane Departure Warning, Road Departure Mitigation, Forward Collision Warning, and Collision Mitigation Braking to keep your Pilot securely centered in its lane and attuned to respond to potential accidents.
These 2017 Honda Pilot safety features serve as extra eyes and ears on the road or an extra hand on the wheel. When you drive with a Pilot, you don’t have to drive alone; it’s here to assist.
Honda LaneWatch: Pilot EX, EX-L, and Touring models have a LaneWatch camera that offers you added peace of mind when changing lanes. Mounted on the passenger-side mirror, this camera offers an expanded look at your blind spot; just signal or press a button and see nearly four times what the mirror displays alone.
Lane Keeping Assist: If the Lane Departure Warning kicks in and goes unanswered, Lane Keeping Assist is here to help. This available Honda Sensing feature responds to a drift by giving the wheel a gentle nudge to keep the Pilot centered in its lane.
Adaptive Cruise Control: Cruise control is no longer reserved for the highways; Adaptive Cruise Control is an available Honda Sensing feature that uses radar to monitor the cars around you and adjust cruising speed accordingly, keeping pace with traffic.
Blind-Spot Monitoring System: The Pilot Elite trades the LaneWatch camera for a set of rear radar sensors that light up an indicator if there’s a vehicle in either of your blind spots. You should always do a manual check before changing lanes, but this safety feature lets you know what to expect.
