2018 Honda Pilot Safety

The 2018 Honda Pilot is a three-row SUV that is as family-friendly as it is sophisticated and tech-savvy. With something for everyone, the Pilot makes safety one of its top priorities, offering safety features inside and out and a body structure, airbags, seat belts, and more that earns the Pilot high safety ratings in crash tests.

  • Active and passive safety features come standard on every model.
  • Drivers drive better with Honda Sensing, a suite of driver-assist technology.
  • More features help drivers see more of the Pilot’s surroundings and eliminate blind spots.

Advanced Compatibility Engineering Structure

Safety is built directly into the Pilot’s body with Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure. It utilizes a network of frame structures to absorb and distribute crash energy away from the occupants inside. It also minimizes the amount of force that is transferred to the other vehicle involved in the accident, keeping everyone on the road safer.

Passive Safety

Present on every Pilot model is a long list of passive safety features. These features may fly under the radar at first glance when glitzier aspects of the Pilot capture the first impression, but passive safety features including airbags and seat-belts are there for times when you need them most.

  • Advanced Front Airbags
  • SmartVent Front Side Airbags
  • Three-Row Side Curtain Airbags with Rollover Sensor
  • Three-Point Seat Belts at All Seating Positions
  • Front Three-Point Seat Belts with Automatic Tensioning System
  • Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH)
  • Driver and Front Passenger Seat-Belt Reminder
  • Child-Proof Rear Door Locks

Active Safety

Active safety features that are standard on every model of the Pilot help to ensure that the Pilot is clearly visible to other drivers on the road while illuminating the road ahead. Other features assist the Pilot with keeping good tractive control with the road, even in slippery conditions, and prevent the brakes from locking up.

  • Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control
  • Anti-Lock Braking System
  • Electronic Brake Distribution
  • Brake Assist
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System with Tire Fill Assist and Location and Pressure Indicators
  • Daytime Running Lights

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera

A rearview camera is standard on every model of the Honda Pilot and helps drivers ensure that their surroundings are clear before backing out. And with guidelines as a standard feature and dynamic guidelines added on the upper trim levels, it’s even easier to maneuver in and out of tight spaces. The camera includes three different views for different situations.

  • Normal View – Great for checking the surroundings of the Pilot before backing out.
  • Wide View – Ideal for making sure pedestrians or other vehicles are not approaching the rear of the Pilot.
  • Top-Down View – Helpful when parallel parking.

Honda Sensing

Honda Sensing is a suite of driver-assistance technology that helps drivers see more, do more, and drive more safely on the road. The package is available starting with the EX model and is standard on the Touring and Elite models. These smart systems include:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System – When an oncoming vehicle or other object is dangerously approaching the Pilot, this system engages the brakes in order to mitigate any impact.
  • Road Departure Mitigation System – If the Pilot rolls over lane lines or road markings, this system can engage the brakes and steering to keep the Pilot from going off the road.
  • Forward Collision Warning – If an impending impact is detected, this system will warn the driver to take swift action.
  • Lane Departure Warning – If the Pilot begins to sway or veer out of its lane on the road, this system can warn the driver to correct the steering.
  • Lane Keeping Assist – If the Lane Departure Warning goes unheeded, this system can nudge the steering to bring the Pilot back to the center of the lane.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control – Drivers select the desired speed and distance interval with the vehicle ahead, and this system balances between them, keeping the Pilot within the natural flow of traffic.

More Safety Throughout the Trim Levels

As drivers explore the upper trim levels, they’ll find more safety features to ensure the Pilot is clearly visible to other drivers on the road, get you in and out more quickly, and provide security when you leave the Pilot parked.

  • Automatic High-Beam Headlights
  • Remote Entry
  • Security System
  • Smart Entry with Walk Away Auto Lock

Blind Spot Safety

  • Honda LaneWatch – Utilizes a camera mounted on the passenger-side mirror and displays a live video feed of activity in the driver’s blind spot on the Display Audio touchscreen. This system allows drivers to see up to four times more than using the mirrors alone.
  • Blind Spot Monitoring System with Cross Traffic Monitor – When a lane change is signaled, this system communicates to drivers when areas on either side of the Pilot are clear.
