As the countdown to the July 31 release date continues, the anticipation surrounding the 2016 Honda Pilot grows larger than ever. With months of buildup, the next-generation Pilot is almost here, and while we’ve done our best to bring you relevant information about the new model, there always seems to be more! Although we’ve already highlighted its towing capacity and cargo space and compared it to the 2015 model it is replacing, we haven’t spent as much time discussing some of the cool technology that is available. So without further ado, here are the 5 best technology features available in the 2016 Honda Pilot that you and your kids will absolutely love.
Rear Seat Entertainment System
In some of the top Honda Pilot trims, the SUV comes equipped with a rear-seat entertainment system that keeps passengers in the second and third rows plenty occupied. The Pilot EX-L trim comes with a DVD player with an HDMI interface and a 115V power outlet while the Touring includes a Blu-Ray system.
High Speed Charging Ports
While enjoying a movie on the Rear Seat Entertainment System is great, the high-speed charging ports in the 2nd row of the 2016 Honda Pilot Touring gives rear seat passengers the opportunity to keep their personal devices charged and ready for use when the ride ends.
Song by Voice
While Song by Voice isn’t necessarily new, it’s still pretty awesome. This standard feature allows you to request a song stored on the Pilot’s hard drive or on a connected device through voice commands. All you need to do is press the voice activation button on the steering wheel to have the Pilot act as your own personal DJ.
One-Touch Power Moonroof w/ Tilt Feature
Available in Honda Pilot EX and higher models, the one-touch moonroof allows plenty of natural light into the cabin. The tilt feature allows you to adjust the angle of the moonroof, so no one has to have the sun directly hitting their seats.
Honda Sensing Active Safety Suite
The Honda Pilot EX includes Honda Sensing — a suite of safety features designed to keep drivers more aware of their surroundings. These advanced technologies include:
- Next-Generation Collision Mitigation Braking
- Forward collision Warning
- Lane Departure Warning
- Lane Keeping Assist
- Road Departure Mitigation
- Adaptive Cruise Control
- Blond Spot Information
- Rear Cross Traffic Monitor
While performance, ride quality, and capabilities are a big part of what make the 2016 Honda Pilot such an attractive model, these, and a number of other advanced technologies, make the next-generation SUV convenient, comfortable, and safe.
