The Soaring 2016 Honda Pilot Safety Rating

September 17th, 2015 by

2016 Honda PilotWe at Bosak Honda Highland were not surprised when the 2016 Honda Pilot was awarded some of the highest safety ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). This SUV uses some of the most innovative safety technology on the market to make sure you and your family are as safe as possible. We are immensely proud to offer Merrillville and Highland drivers the Honda Pilot, an IIHS Top Safety Pick+.

Safey Ratings From the IIHS

The Top Safety Pick+ award is given to those vehicles that earn good ratings in five crash tests, plus an advanced rating for front crash prevention. The Pilot received a rating of GOOD in a total of five crash tests. Then, equipped with front crash prevention, IIHS gave the Pilot a Top Safety Pick+ rating for receiving a score of GOOD in the very demanding small overlap frontal crash test.

All of this combined makes the Pilot “…the top choice for family SUV buyers interested in safety performance,” according to Jeff Conrad, Honda Division senior vice president. Conrad also cited Honda Sensing as one of the principal reasons why the 2016 Honda Pilot has received such accolades for its safety.

Honda Sensing Technology

Honda Sensing safety technology is available on Pilot EX trims and above. Honda Sensing uses smart technology to make you more sensitive to your environment, keeping you safe from potentially dangerous surprises.

Honda Sensing systems include Lane Keeping Assist System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning, and Road Departure Mitigation. Honda Sensing also uses its camera and radar system to warn you of potential collisions with another automobile or a pedestrian.

Honda Advanced Capability Engineering adds strength to suspension for the 2016 Honda Pilot. Combined with Honda Sensing and standard Vehicle Stability Assist, ACE helps keep you and your loved ones out of harm’s way.
