2017 Honda Pilot Review
With so much happening in the Miami, Doral, and Hialeah areas every week, you might often have the entire family piling into your SUV for a road trip. When you do, you’re going to want to know that you’re all riding with optimum safety and comfort. The 2017 Honda Pilot can offer you all this and more.
In this review, our team at Braman Honda will be looking at the safety, interior, and performance specifications that you care about most.
Total Protection for Your Family
From the front to the back of the 2017 Honda Pilot, comprehensive cushioning is offered for all through the advanced airbag system. Multiple-threshold dual airbags will cocoon drivers and front-sitting passengers, while those in the back will be protected by several side-curtain airbags with rollover sensors. The moment a collision hits, your Pilot will react.
An assortment of technologies adds intuitive control to your vehicle. Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with traction control, for instance, makes it easy to stay on track no matter what road conditions may be. Daytime running lights and a multi-angle rearview camera with guidelinesare also included to enhance visibility and awareness.
Convenient & Spacious
When you sit down in your Honda Pilot, you can start your vehicle with just the push of a button. Connect your phone using either the USB charge port or via Bluetooth®.1 From here, you can stream your music library and make hands-free calls, all of which will sound crystal clear when played through the 200-watt 7-speaker audio system.
In addition to connecting your phone, you can connect most devices using the two 12-volt power outlets. You can also connect your MP3 player using the auxiliary jack. Music libraries and apps will be accessible on the 5-inch color LCD screen.
The 2017 Honda Pilot is an incredibly spacious vehicle that seats 8 passengers. 152.9 cubic feet of occupant volume is offered overall, as well as 40.1 inches of headroom and 40.9 inches of legroom for drivers. With all that space and technology, relaxation won’t be hard to come by.
A cadre of technologies has been added to the 3.5L 6-cylinder to increase Pilot efficiency and power. Intelligent VTEC® and Variable Cylinder Management™, for instance, work together to simplify intake and exhaust and cut back on fuel consumption. The direct fuel injection system also aids in these efforts.
The Pilot maintains 26 MPG highway and 18 MPG city,2 but still generates 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque – an impressive feat for an SUV. Its 6-speed automatic transmission and Eco Assist™ system work to improve both these facets.
Despite its powerful engine, the 2017 Honda Pilot is still a remarkably quiet ride. The active control engine mount system reduces high harmonic vibrations. Meanwhile, active noise cancellation cuts down on the amount of noise entering the cabin.
