5 Handy Features of the 2018 Honda Pilot
The 2018 Honda Pilot is built for families on the go, with tons of standard and available features to help you out. These features give you better control of your SUV, with added safety, versatility, and technology benefits. With a starting MSRP of $30,900*, the Pilot can put it work taking the kids around town, commuting to work, and heading out for weekends and vacations. If your family spends a lot of time on the road, here are five features you’ll definitely appreciate!
Easy Eight-Passenger Seating
In order to take everybody on the road, the 2018 Honda Pilot offers standard seating for eight passengers. The spacious cabin lets everyone travel in comfort, and still leaves you plenty of cargo room. Heading out for a family picnic? There’s room to stash an 82-quart cooler on the floor behind the third row. If you need more space than that, the Pilot’s second and third rows easily fold flat with standard 60/40 split-folding seats. The Pilot EX-L and above trims even include One-Touch Second-Row seats, which move forward at the touch of a button to create easy access to the third row. Plus, a plush leather-trimmed cabin is available to give everyone a cushy, comfortable ride.
One of the most important aspects of any family vehicle is safety. That’s why the 2018 Honda Pilot offers the comprehensive Honda Sensing safety suite on almost every trim. It’s available on the EX and EX-L models, and it comes standard with a Pilot Touring or Elite model. Honda Sensing includes Collision Mitigation Braking System and Road Departure Mitigation System to help keep you safe on the road. It also features Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Keeping Assist System to help the driver out.
Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation
It’s also easy to connect your 2018 Honda Pilot to the world at large. The Pilot Touring and Elite models come with standard Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation in addition to standard smartphone connectivity systems. This navigation system features state-of-the-art graphics, including 3D renderings of terrain and buildings. The Garmin-based system has handy features like HD Digital Traffic, predictive local search, and simplified voice recognition that make it easy to use. It also has a lane guidance split screen for road signs and exits, and you get free map updates for five years.
Rear Seat Entertainment System
Many families these days spend a lot of time on the road. Whether your family piles into the car to visit grandparents, go camping, or get to sports tournaments, the 2018 Honda Pilot helps you stay entertained the whole way there. The best way to avoid the dreaded question of “are we there yet” is the Pilot’s available Rear Entertainment System. It comes with DVD and Blu-Ray Disc compatibility, plus a removable remote control. The Pilot also has second-row sunshades to give your passengers a better viewing experience. There’s also a 115-volt power outlet, so you can plug in and charge games or phones from the second row.
Remote Engine Start
The 2018 Honda Pilot also offers comfort from the get-go. With Remote Engine Start coming as standard equipment on the Pilot EX and above, this SUV can be ready and waiting for you. Remote Engine Start lets you start your Pilot up from 60 yards away. With the engine running, your Pilot will automatically start heating or cooling the cabin for you, too. If your Pilot senses an interior temperature over 82 degrees, it will start cooling the cabin in recirculation mode. However if the interior temperature is below 40 degrees, the Pilot will activate defrosters so that it’s ready to go when you are.
