The 2016 Honda Pilot offers several enhancements over previous models. The improvements make it more competitive in the three-row crossover class of vehicles. Enhancements to passenger comfort and improvements to the mechanical capabilities make this vehicle a top choice.

The Pilot has been completely redesigned for the 2016 model year. The interior has been revamped, and there are now more roomy and versatile seats. Extra headroom and legroom, as well as more cupholders and bins for personal items are a few features that customers should appreciate. The vehicle also has improved ride and handling. This is due in large part to the use of better quality, high-strength steel. The vehicle was also reduced in weight by approximately 250 pounds.

The Honda Pilot is loaded with the latest technology to make driving more enjoyable, convenient, and safe. Bluetooth technology allows for hands-free communication, so you can keep your eyes on the road. An MP3 auxiliary input jack comes standard along with a radio data system. Volume automatically adjusts based on the speed of the vehicle, so you won't have to adjust the volume when you move from city streets to the freeway. USB connectivity and charging is available in various locations throughout the cabin. Additionally, a multi-information display puts all of the most important specs within your line of vision. A multi-angle, rearview backup camera also comes standard on all trims.

The vehicle offers sliding sun visors, a remote fuel filler door release, and a hidden storage well to help secure your valuables. Additionally, a leather wrapped steering wheel comes standard.


There are several active and passive safety features that give you and your passengers peace of mind. In the event of an accident, anti-lock brakes, vehicle stability assistant with traction control and brake assist can help you stop faster and maintain control of your vehicle. A Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) are also available options. The Honda Pilot benefits from an advanced body structure that is designed to absorb impact to lessen the effect on passengers. Additionally, a full complement of airbags helps to keep all passengers safe.
