Safety

A number of standard safety features are offered, including antilock brakes, an electronic stability system, side-impact airbags for the front seats, three-row side curtain airbags, and active head restraints for the front seats. EX-L and Touring trim levels have backup cameras; in the EX-L the image is displayed in a small section of the rearview mirror, while Touring models use the navigation system screen in the middle of the dash to show what's behind the SUV.

The Pilot also uses Honda's Advanced Compatibility Engineering technology, which consists of structural elements in the front of the SUV that are designed to meet the frames of both smaller and larger vehicles during a collision and send crash forces away from occupants riding in the Pilot.

The 2009 Pilot received Good overall ratings in the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's frontal-offset, side-impact and rear crash tests. Those scores combine with the Pilot's standard stability system to make the crossover an IIHS Top Safety Pick for 2009.
