Design of Honda Pilot
The 2017 Honda Pilot presents itself in LX, EX, EX-L, Touring and the Elite model levels. All of these seat eight people, besides the Elite, which has hip, second-row captain’s chairs instead (seats 7). The Pilot is a triple-row crossover SUV that works well for a travelling family. Standard features are expansive, including cruise control, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, 18-inch alloy wheels, AC, and a 60/40-split folding third-row seat. Electronic functions inside are a seven-speaker sound system, a rearview camera, a 5-inch central display screen, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, an aux audio jack and a USB port. The EX model adds automatic headlights, remote engine start, the Honda LaneWatch blind-spot camera, foglights, LED running lights, heated mirrors, dynamic guidelines for the rearview camera, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and Pandora internet radio control. Going to the EX-L adds a power tailgate, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a sunroof. The Touring model adopts all of the EX-L’s standard and available items plus 20-inch wheels, automatic engine stop-start, roof rails, front/rear parking sensors, driver-seat memory settings, and more! The premium-oriented Elite trim adds a panoramic sunroof, LED headlights, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert (replaces LaneWatch), automatic high-beam headlight control, automatic windshield wipers, and a lot more!
