The 2016 Honda Pilot is a Top Safety Pick+

2016 Honda Pilot

2016 Honda Pilot

The 2016 Honda Pilot is currently available here at Community Honda of Orland Park, and it has been officially rated as one of the safest vehicles on the road today. The new model has earned the best possible Top Safety Pick+ ranking from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). To achieve this ranking, a vehicle must not only score well in crash tests but it must also be available with sophisticated collision prevention technology to stop accidents before they even happen. Of course, the Honda Pilot succeeded at all tests and is currently available with the Honda Sensing package.

A Top Safety Pick+

The 2016 Honda Pilot, redesigned for the 2016 model year, earned the IIHS’ Top Safety Pick+ ranking. The Honda Pilot must be equipped with the Honda Sensing package – standard on the Touring trim level and optional on all other models – to earn the plus. The Top Safety Pick+ ranking requires that a vehicle score a best possible “Good” rating in the moderate overlap front, roof strength, side, and seatbelt and head restraints tests, with at least an “Acceptable” rating in the small front overlap test and at least an “Advanced” in the Front Collision Prevention Category.

The Honda Pilot actually goes above and beyond, scoring the “Good” ranking in all crash tests and a “Superior” in the Front Collision Prevention category when equipped with the Honda Sensing system. The Honda Sensing system successfully stopped the car using automatic braking systems from 12 mph and reduced the vehicle’s speed by half from 25 mph in the IIHS testing, meaning that it would avoid an accident in the real world from those speeds. Honda Sensing includes both front collision warning and automatic collision prevention braking, adaptive cruise control, and a lane departure warning and prevention system.
