2016 Honda Pilot is the Safest Family Drive


The 2016 Honda Pilot will give drivers many reasons to fall in love with it. The new redesign has a sleeker look compared to the previous boxy look. So far reviews have been glowing and have stated that the 2016 Pilot is a great choice and one of the best 3 row SUVs available. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety recently awarded the 2016 Honda Pilot as the Top Safety Rating for 2015. Not only did the SUV perform above average in collision testing, Honda went the extra mile by equipping the vehicle with the most updated safety and driver-assistive technologies on the market.

SUVs like the Honda Pilot have long been a favorite for family drivers. The 3rd row seating is an attractive feature for families of 5 and over. Safety is also a very important feature in family vehicles and the Pilot is a leader in this area.

It got attention because of its rigid and protective design but its collection of technologies makes it among the safest vehicles around. Here’s what you can expect from Honda Sensing™:

– Adaptive Cruise Control
– Collision Mitigation Braking System™
– Forward Collision Warning
– Lane Departure Warning
– Lane Keeping Assist System
– Road Departure Mitigation

During testing, the Pilots numerous sensors and cameras have predicted road departures and crashes and actually initiated braking in appropriate situations. Even more the system can pinpoint pedestrians, cars and obstacles. Although the system isn’t perfect, it definitely will minimize crashes and therefore injuries.

The bad news is that some of the safety features are extra, but for safety minded parents paying extra for the safety features is an easy choice.

Besides safety, the 2016 Pilot is still a great option. The 280 hp 3.5-liter V6 is standard which is more powerful than its predecessor and is surprisingly quick for its size. It also comes with a class leading fuel economy of 23 mpg combined.

The interior while not exactly luxurious is certainly comfortable and flexible. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price is fairly low for this reason starting at $31,000 for the base level but it is still better than its immediate predecessor. There is more sitting space and the cargo area is larger. You can also use it for towing up to 5,000 lbs., which is more than enough to attach a trailer when going camping.
