Find out more about the unique characteristics of this full-sized crossover SUV below:
Highly Responsive Handling
Many competing SUVs handle like large trucks, but the Honda Pilot has been engineered to drive like a smaller, more nimble car. The 250 horsepower, 3.5L V6 engine operates quietly and efficiently, thanks to the exclusive Variable Cylinder Management system by Honda. The four-wheel independent suspension provides a smooth ride over any terrain, and if you choose the four-wheel drive models you can even go off-road.
Spacious Modern Interior
With the second and third row seats up, the Honda Pilot can comfortably carry six passengers. For hauling luggage or recreational equipment such as bicycles or skis, you can fold down one or both rows of seats to get up to 87 cubic feet of cargo space. Select the EX-L or Touring model, and you can have Honda’s rear seat DVD entertainment system, perfect for entertaining children on extended family vacations.
Comprehensive Safety Features
Anti-lock brakes and Vehicle Stability Control with Traction assist help you avoid losing control of the vehicle on wet, slippery roads. The Pilot also features Honda’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering, which is designed to redistribute forces around the body of the car to protect the driver and passengers in the event of a collision. An extensive system of smart airbags will deploy in different configurations depending on the nature of the crash, as determined by an array of internal sensors.

Honda has long been a leader in fuel efficiency and environmental awareness. In recent years, progress in the areas of alternative fuels and sustainable manufacturing has allowed Honda to further reduce its impact on the planet. But what exactly makes Honda so green? What technologies does the company use to minimize pollution and consumption? Read on to find out.
Many manufacturers have released a line of hybrid vehicles, but Honda’s line is one of the most impressive. The current 2013 Honda lineup features two hybrid vehicles: the 2013 Insight and the 2013 CR-Z. The Insight hybrid model gets 44 MPG on the highway, and the CR-Z—a true sports hybrid—gets 39 MPG on the highway. Honda also offers a fully electric vehicle, the Fit EV.
One of the most impactful aspects of Honda’s environmentally friendly philosophy is green manufacturing. By implementing low-waste practices, Honda has turned 10 of its 14 North American plants into zero-landfill operations. Since 2001, Honda has reduced the total amount of manufacturing waste that goes to landfills —from both automobiles and power equipment—by 91.9%. Even the painting process has been refined, and the CO2 emissions created by climate control for the paint booths have been reduced by as much as 25%.
