What Makes 2016 Honda Pilot So Safe?
2016 Honda Pilot received the highest 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) New Car Assessment Program (NCAP). But this is not all: 2016 Pilot also earned the TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) when equipped with the optional crash prevention system, which makes it the first three-row SUV machine with such high achievements and ratings.
Honda Sensing, available for Pilot EX trim levels and above, is what makes this sweetie special. It offers improved awareness with its countless systems, some of which are Collision Mitigation Braking System, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Keeping Assist System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning and Road Departure Mitigation. Furthermore, all these systems benefit from the adoption of a sensor fusion technology integration that deliver enhanced sensing and the ability to identify and anticipate multiple collision scenarios. And of course, it initiates warning and emergency braking when needed.
