A big part of the 2017 Honda Pilot's mass appeal is its spacious cabin, with seating for up to eight passengers. In the upscale Pilot Elite model, second-row captain's chairs enhance comfort but reduce overall capacity to seven. Still, any way you look at it, the Pilot is a great option for families with places to go and people to drive around town. Up front, the eight-way power-adjustable driver seat gives drivers of all shapes and sizes the means to find the perfect spot for maximum comfort. One-touch sliding second-row seats offer plenty of legroom for your next family road trip. In the very back, the Pilot supplies adult-friendly space - a rarity in any three-row vehicle.-that can also fold into the floor to create a flat loading space when you need a little extra cargo room.

If you've got to respond to an SMS SOS on the run, the Pilot has your back. The Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration features give you the power to access vital apps directly from the Pilot's central touchscreen. You can also make hands-free calls, so it's easy to touch base with your home base to find out whether you should pick up a pizza for dinner. The Pilot also keeps young passengers happily entertained with the rear seat entertainment system - simply pop in a Blu-ray disc and enjoy peace and quiet for hours on end. An added bonus? The nifty 115-volt, household-style power outlet is perfect for highway laptop users.

In government crash tests, the 2017 Honda Pilot earned a perfect five-star rating for overall protection. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Pilot its top score of "Good." The Pilot's front crash protection system, which detects an oncoming collision and intervenes with emergency braking, earned a rare score of "Superior." In addition to premium crash-test scores, the Pilot looks out for you and your family with a range of innovative tech features. The LaneWatch system is unique in that, when you employ the right turn signal, it displays the passenger-side blind spot on the Pilot's central touchscreen so you can switch lanes without difficulty.

When you're in need of sporty utility, the 2017 Honda Pilot is a must-drive. Its all-wheel-drive system is perfect for drivers who cruise through icy or wet roads on a regular basis. This technology boosts traction in inclement weather so you can maintain control and maximize on-road safety. The Pilot can tow up to 5,000 pounds, so you can take your boat to your favorite loading dock every single weekend.
