Honda has often been the forerunner in the race for automotive technological supremacy, producing vehicles that serve as prototypes to entire categories of vehicles. That trend doesn’t seem to be waning, as the 2017 Honda Pilot amply demonstrates.

The Pilot is a versatile ‘Big SUV’ designed to fill many roles simultaneously. It drives smoothly and provides a plethora of comfort options, from adjustable inner armrests to power-operated back and bottom adjustments. Combined with its exceptionally smooth ride and quiet cabin, the Honda Pilot would serve well as a daily commute vehicle or long-distance caravan. All three rows are laid out and designed to optimize space, including the ability to lower the second and third rows to make room for additional cargo when necessary. The rows themselves are roomy and comfortable and the second row features the option to slide and recline on some models. With seating capability for up to eight people, the Pilot excels at transporting your crew and their gear.

All of these comfort features don’t come at the expense of power and capability either, the 2017 Pilot has an available 3.5L V6 tied to a 9-speed automatic transmission, providing it plenty of get-up-and-go when needed. It handles well, capable of handling tight corners and managing slippery surfaces with ease. An available all-wheel-drive feature enhances this capability even further, including the ability to tow up to 5,000 pounds.

While comfort and capability are key features, few things are more important to consider than safety. The Pilot takes the care of its eight passengers seriously and provides the driver with numerous technological aids to assist in that endeavor. The Honda LaneWatch system safely manages lane changes while other systems like adaptive cruise control and collision mitigation work to prevent dreaded front-end collisions. Ultimately, an intelligent layout of airbags ensures that should the worse happen, your passengers will be protected.

In its entirety, the 2017 Honda Pilot is an exceptional vehicle and a strong competitor in the field of three-row crossovers. Honda, as usual, has done it again. If you’re interested in test driving the new Honda Pilot, come to Bay Ridge Honda today and our team will get you behind the wheel!
