According to Honda News, ”The 2016 Pilot is not only the most technologically advanced Honda vehicle on the road today, but the top choice for family SUV buyers interested in safety performance,” said Jeff Conrad, Honda Division senior vice president and general manager. “No other midsize mainstream SUV on the market today can match the comprehensive suite of Honda Sensing™ advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies on the new Honda Pilot.”
Available on the 2016 Pilot EX and above, Honda Sensing™ can improve awareness of the drivers surroundings. The Honda Sensing™ system includes 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). Paired with sensor fusion technology and windshield-mounted monocular camera and front grills-mounted millimeter wave radar system, these advanced safety features work together and identify and anticipate multiple collision scenarios, including those involving a pedestrian in an effort to prevent the undesirable. Warning sounds, lights and in certain instances, initiate emergency braking and steering will occur if presented with a threatening situation.
In addition to Honda Sensing™, the 2016 Pilot is built with the latest generation of Honda’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, a new “3-bone” underbody frame design and new hot-stamped ultra-high strength steel door rings, according to Honda News. Together with Honda Sensing™, these engineering features and technologies deliver major gains to the Pilot’s collision avoidance and collision protection capabilities.
