The 2016 Honda Pilot receives a stunning new transformation with its complete redesign. As previously seen on the Pilot, the boxy style design has been revamped into a more modern and sleek design with more interior space. In addition to their redesign, the Pilot has earned the 2015 top safety pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
The fully redesigned 2016 Honda Pilot has received a 2015 Top Safety Pick+ rating from the U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) when equipped with optional front crash prevention.
It brings Honda one-step closer to fulfilling the company’s goal to be the first three-row mainstream SUV with the highest available U.S. government (NCAP) and IIHS safety ratings.
This IIHS distinction includes a top rating of GOOD in five IIHS crash test modes including a top score of GOOD in the Insurance Institute’s stringent small overlap frontal crash test.
The 2015 Top Safety Pick+ designation is awarded to vehicles that also have an available front crash prevention system that earns an advanced or superior rating from the Institute.
The 2016 Pilot offers an available frontal crash prevention system that earns a top rating of superior.
Available on Pilot is Honda Sensing that can help improve drivers’ situational awareness with its various systems, which include the Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS™) with Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Road Departure Mitigation (RDM).
These systems benefit from the adoption of a sensor fusion technology integrating the capabilities of a windshield-mounted monocular camera and front grille-mounted millimeter wave radar system to provide enhanced sensing with the ability to identify and anticipate multiple collision scenarios, including those involving a pedestrian.
When the system anticipates a collision or road departure, it can initiate warnings and, in certain instances, initiate emergency braking and steering.
With their new redesign and new safety features, the 2016 Pilot is a great family vehicle to consider.
