Honda Pilot Honda Sensing® Technologies
In order to make sure you can easily react to potential accidents on the road, the Honda Pilot includes the standard Honda Sensing® suite.
This system provides features such as a Collision Mitigation Braking System™. If your SUV detects a possible collision, it can bring you to a stop automatically.
Additionally, Honda Sensing® gives you a standard Road Departure Mitigation System. This helpful feature is designed to enhance your confidence on the highway by allowing your SUV to correct your steering if you start to cross over the lane markers.
Finally, one of the most exciting features offered by the Honda Sensing® suite is the Adaptive Cruise Control system. This standard feature allows you to stay in cruise control for longer as your vehicle adjusts your speed to keep you at a safe distance behind traffic.
That’s not all this SUV has for you, though; the Honda Sensing® suite provides features that are designed to make your life easier. Just take a look at some of the additional features you can find with this suite:
- Lane Keeping Assist System
- Forward Collision Warning
- Lane Departure Warning
In order to make sure you have a more relaxing and comprehensive drive, the Honda Pilot includes driver-assistive features. Just look at the Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Monitor. This feature will detect cars in your blind spot to make sure you don’t make any dangerous lane changes.
Driving at night in this SUV is simple, too, thanks to the standard Auto High-Beam Headlights. This feature will automatically turn off your high beams when your car detects oncoming traffic at night. You’ll make the roads safer for everyone when you have this feature turned on.
Honda Pilot Handling-Enhancing Features

A standard Brake Assist feature further enhances your safety by bolstering your brake power.

Brake Assist is a huge help when you need to make emergency braking maneuvers.

To further enhance your safety, the Honda Pilot is equipped with airbags designed to cushion your movement during a collision. In order to make sure that everyone is properly secured, you’ll have these airbags placed throughout the cabin:
- Advanced Front Airbags
- SmartVent® Front Side Airbags
