2020 Pilot Safety Features

The strong Pilot safety ratings would not be possible without the Honda Sensing® safety suite, which is packed with a wide range of driver-assist and safety features such as:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) – When there’s the potential for a frontal collision, this feature will help your Pilot brake to avoid it.
  • Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM) – Using sensors in the rearview mirror, this system can detect if you’re about to leave your lane and provide steering and braking assistance to keep you where you need to be.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) – Maintain a set speed while on Grosse Pointe streets and keep a safe set distance from the vehicle in front of you.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) – This feature adjusts steering to keep you and your Pilot within the lane markings.
