2017 Honda Pilot Safety Features Protect and Prevent

  • 2017 Honda Pilot

    SUVs need to be ready for work or family use, which means the 2017 Honda Pilot safety features should be state of the art. A combination of active, passive, and driver-assist features help the Pilot protect West Michigan drivers, working to avoid accidents when possible and mitigating the damage from any collisions. Discover the different ways the Pilot keeps you safe in our comprehensive breakdown below.

Active Safety

These 2017 Honda Pilot safety features exist to keep you in control and ensure the Pilot stays stable, even in West Michigan winters.


Honda Pilot Vehicle Stability Assist

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.

Honda Pilot Brake Assist

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.

Honda Pilot Rearview Camera

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.

2017 Honda Pilot 20 inch Black Alloy Wheel

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.

Honda Pilot Front View

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 Pilot Collision Mitigation Braking System

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.

Passive Safety

Passive safety features are waiting to be triggered, keeping passengers safe and secure in response to something like an accident or a sudden stop.

  • ACE Body Structure: Underneath the Pilot is the Advanced Compatibility Engineering—ACE—body structure, designed to crumple in key areas and reinforced in common collision locations to help keep passengers safe in an accident.
  • Airbags: Airbags have advanced tremendously in recent years, and the Pilot features an array of them designed to cushion passengers in the event of a collision. Three-row side curtain airbags with rollover sensor, SmartVent front side airbags, and dual-stage multi-threshold front airbags all work to keep you safe.
  • Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren (LATCH): With the LATCH safety seat tethers and anchors, the Pilot makes it easy to secure your kids’ car seats in seconds and know they are held in place. You’ll find LATCH anchors on both second- and third-row seats.
  • Three-Point Seat Belts: Every seat in the Pilot includes a three-point seat belt that secures its passenger in an accident. Front seats also include a reminder to buckle up before the Pilot shifts into drive as well as an automatic tensioning system.

Driver Assist Features

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 Pilot Lanewatch

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.

Honda Pilot Lane Keeping Assist

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.

Honda Pilot Adaptive Cruise Control

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.

Honda Pilot Blind Spot Information System

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.
