Safety in the Pilot begins with the innovative body design. An Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure utilizes a complex network of frame structures that absorb crash energy and distribute it away from the occupants sitting inside the cabin. It also minimizes the amount of force transferred to the other vehicle involved in the collision, keeping everyone on the road safer.
The Pilot features a long list of passive safety features comprised of airbags, seat belts, child locks, and more. These features may go on unnoticed at first glance but are there for you to keep you and your family safe when you need them most.
The Pilots active safety features avoid safety risks in potentially dangerous driving situations by enhancing the Pilot’s performance even amid inclement weather or slippery road surfaces. These features help the Pilot maintain good tractive control with the road, come to a complete stop more quickly in an emergency braking situation, and helps drivers monitor the pressure in all four tires.
Every model of the Pilot comes standard with a multi-angle rearview camera that allows drivers to check their surroundings before backing up. With the rearview camera, drivers can check for small obstacles that would be too low to see using the mirrors alone. And with guidelines as the standard, and dynamic guidelines on the upper trim levels, drivers can maneuver in and out of tight spaces with ease. The camera includes three different angles, each offering an optimal view for different driving situations.
Standard staring with the EX model, the Pilot comes equipped with a blind spot monitoring system designed to help drivers see more than when using the mirrors alone. The system will issue a warning light in the side mirror when a car is detected within the blind spot range—about 10 feet from each side and about 15 feet back from the front doors. If a lane change is signaled when there is activity in the blind spot, the warning light will blink and an audible alert will sound, letting drivers know that it isn’t safe to change lanes.
