Convenience-Enhancing Technologies

Among the Pilot’s cutting-edge features is a variety of technologies that are designed to bolster the driving experience in various ways. From amenities that enhance entertainment and connectivity to systems created to boost convenience, the Honda Pilot is impressively loaded with prime features. Here is just a sampling of some of the featured amenities drivers will find onboard the Pilot:


Honda Pilot Keyless Entry

Smart Entry: In all but the base model, the Honda Pilot comes equipped with standard Smart Entry. This feature enables drivers to unlock the vehicle, open the doors and the rear liftgate, start the engine, drive, shut off the engine, and then re-lock the Pilot—all without ever touching the key. As long as the key fob is in range, the Smart Entry system takes care of the rest.

Honda Pilot Rear Entertainment System

Rear Entertainment System: A Rear Entertainment System with DVD and Blu-ray capability comes standard in the Honda Pilot Touring and Elite models and is available for the EX-L trim. This system, which features a 9-inch screen, is perfect for keeping kids occupied on long trips—and since the Honda Pilot comes equipped with standard seating for eight passengers, you’ll be able to load in a lot of kids to come along for the ride!

Honda Pilot Navigation

Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System: A Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System, standard in the Pilot Touring and Elite trims and available for the EX-L model, efficiently helps drivers get where they want to go. This Garmin-based system features HD Digital Traffic, 3D terrain and building renderings, predictive local search, a lane guidance split screen for road signs and exits, voice-recognition technology, and free map updates for five years.

Honda Pilot Homelink System

HomeLink Remote System: A HomeLink Remote System comes standard in all but the base model. Using this system, drivers can program the Pilot to operate as many as three remote-controlled devices within their homes, including garage doors, home security systems, and lighting.

Honda Pilot Front View

Rain-Sensing Windshield Wipers: Rain-sensing windshield wipers come standard on the Pilot Elite trim and remove the distraction of having to manually turn on and adjust the windshield wipers in stormy conditions. A sensor gauges the amount of precipitation striking the windshield and varies the wiper deployment and speed accordingly.

Bluetooth Connectivity: Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and Bluetooth streaming audio both come standard in each Pilot trim, providing hands-free access to phone functions and audio content via a paired smartphone.
