The 2013 Honda Pilot: An IIHS Top Safety Pick

Last updated 5 years ago

The Honda Pilot scored the highest possible rating on crash safety tests conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Because of its proven record of class-leading safety, the IIHS awarded the Honda Pilot with its coveted 2013 Top Safety Pick award. If you are looking for a safe Honda SUV for your Alexandria family, read on to discover why the 2013 Honda Pilot’s safety features make it a top pick in its segment.

Advanced Compatibility Engineering Frame

The 2013 Honda Pilot performed well in IIHS crash safety tests thanks in large part because of its Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure. This exclusive design absorbs the energy of a collision, distributing it as evenly as possible throughout the front part of the frame. By managing the energy of a collision in this way, the Honda Pilot is able to mitigate the damage and force of a car accident to decrease the risk of injury.

Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control

This high-tech safety system constantly monitors the Honda Pilot’s throttle input in comparison with the wheel speed in order to detect slippage. If slippage is detected, the system will help restore traction by both adjusting the engine torque and applying braking power to individual wheels.

Active Head Restraints

During a significant rear-impact collision, the Honda Pilot’s driver and front passenger headrests will immediately move up and forward. This reduces the likelihood of the front occupants experiencing whiplash and other serious neck injuries.

Generous Lineup of Airbags

The Honda Pilot comes with a variety of airbags, including multi-stage front airbags that inflate at different rates depending on the severity of the crash. The Honda Pilot also comes with third-row side curtain airbags that inflate if there is either a side impact or a rollover detected.
