2019 Honda Pilot safety

Drivers from Elgin to Barrington have great things to say about the 2019 Honda Pilot safety features, and they’re not the only ones. Experts from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) have both given the new Pilot their highest honors:

  • The IIHS has named the 2019 Honda Pilot as a Top Safety Pick+*
  • The NHTSA has awarded the Pilot a 5-Star overall crash test rating**

These excellent 2019 Honda Pilot safety ratings are the result of advanced technologies, including the Honda Sensing® safety suite. We here at Brilliance Honda have broken down the Honda Pilot safety features in the space below.

Honda Pilot Safety Features: Honda Sensing®

The 2019 Honda Sensing® safety suite is standard in every 2019 Honda Pilot, even the baseline LX configuration! These advanced components use cameras, radar, and computer processing to make your Schaumburg area commutes safer, easier, and more enjoyable. This package includes:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC): When you set your preferred speed and preferred follow distance, ACC will automatically keep your vehicle moving with the flow of traffic on your Crystal Lake area drives.
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™): A Forward Collision Warning and a Collision Mitigation Braking System™ work together to mitigate the potential for frontal collisions. The latter can bring you to a complete stop if it detects danger.
  • Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM): The RDM uses rearview mirror-mounted sensors to track the road’s shoulder, and it will automatically provide steering and braking assistance to keep you from departing from the pavement.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS): By tracking lines on the road, this Pilot safety feature keeps you situated safely in the center of your lane. If the LKAS detects that you’re in danger of crossing over, it gently steers you out of harm’s way.
