Honda Pilot Safety Features
Safety is essential for any vehicle. It’s vital to keep you and your family more secure whether you’re just driving to the office or the grocery store, you’re taking the kids to band practice, or you’re going on a long vacation road trip.
Drivers in Denver, Aurora, and Centennial love their SUVs, but they demand vehicles with respected and high safety ratings at the same time. Let’s take a look at how the new Honda Pilot holds up in this area.

2017 Honda Pilot Safety Ratings
Let’s start by looking at the basics — the Honda Pilot has gained outstanding safety ratings overall from the National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), and J.D. Power, the three most well-regarded ratings for safety in the world.
The NHTSA gave the Pilot 5-Star Overall Safety Rating¹, with five stars specifically in driver protection, overall side crash protection, front and back seat side barrier, and driver and passenger side crash protection. The IIHS gave the Pilot its top “Good” rating in every area, resulting in the Pilot being named as a 2017 TOP SAFETY PICK+.² J.D. Power gave the pilot four stars in overall quality and body/interior design, as well as 5 stars in features and accessories.
Starting with the basics, the 2017 Honda Pilot comes with anti-lock brakes, stability and traction control, and airbags in the expected places — front seat driver and passenger, side curtain, side and rear head air bags and rear body areas. It also comes with automatic headlights, braking assist, daytime running lights, child safety locks, nightvision technology, and rollover protection.
In addition, the Pilot comes with Honda LaneWatch, a standard feature which gives you blind-spot camera monitoring on your passenger side, which will help merge and park.
Optional on the EX and EX-L levels, you can get the Honda Sensing™ Package, which gives you front crash warning and mitigation with automatic braking, as well as lake keeping and departure aids to keep you from accidental collisions. On the Touring and Elite levels, you get front and rear parking sensors, which can help you get into and out of tight parking spaces.
