2017 Honda Pilot Passive Safety Features
The passive safety features are the last line of defense when facing an automotive collision. Luckily, the 2017 Honda Pilot starts its protection on the outside with the Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ body structure that features front and rear crumple zones, as well as reinforced side door beams that’ll help absorb and disperse the force of impact. As for the interior, the front passengers receive protection from the dual-stage, multiple threshold front airbags and the SmartVent® front side airbags. Passengers in the last two rows, as well as the first-row passengers, receive protection from the side curtain airbags with rollover sensors.
Honda Pilot Active Safety Features
The Honda Pilot is equipped with a variety of braking systems that are designed to provide more control to the driver during emergency situations. The Electronic Brake-force Distribution helps by varying the amount of brake pressure applied to each wheels for better stopping control. Brake Assist adds extra force when braking in an emergency situation.
This SUV is also equipped with Vehicle Stability Assist™. This system recognizes a loss of traction and provides the necessary brake pressure to help stop the affected wheel from slipping. This system also reduces the engine speed while redistributing torque to the wheels with better traction to help keep the Honda Pilot on its path.
