2015 Honda Pilot accessories

Thanks to its outstanding crash test safety ratings and advanced engineering, the 2015 Honda Pilot is one of the safest sport utility vehicles currently on the market. Available right here in Boulder at Fisher Honda, one of the most notable things about this car are the 2015 Honda Pilot safety features! Let’s explore what these features are capable of and what they have to offer for passengers.

Honda Pilot Body Design

Built using the Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) structure, the 2015 Honda Pilot was designed to effectively distribute crash energy throughout the front end of the vehicle by crumpling in all the right areas. This helps to prevent occupants from absorbing said energy and reduces the overall risk of injury. The ACE structure also helps avoid transferring that crash energy to other vehicles in the event of a multi-car collision.

Vehicle Stability Control

In order to help the driver maintain full control of the 2015 Honda Pilot, this vehicle comes equipped with a standard vehicle stability assist system and traction control. If there is an under or oversteer situation detected, this system will actively engage to help you return to your intended course and avoid a potentially hazardous situation. The traction control aspect is incredibly helpful during slippery road conditions as well.

Three Rows of Side Curtain Airbags

Standard for all three rows of seats, the 2015 Honda Pilot safety features includes side curtain airbags with a built-in rollover sensor. No matter what sort of accident situation occurs with this vehicle, these side curtain airbags are designed to provide optimum protection for all passengers, even in the event of a rollover.

Backup Camera

For added visibility when reversing out of a tight parking spot, the 2015 Honda Pilot is outfitted with a standard rearview backup camera. The image from this camera is displayed in high resolution on the standard 8-inch infotainment screen and features guidelines to help you determine the distance an object is from the back of the new Honda Pilot. This will help you avoid making contact with other vehicles as well.

The 2015 Honda Pilot Safety Features are Top-Notch

Honda workers celebrate millionth car exported from US

A silver Honda Accord sedan is rarely a vehicle worth getting too excited over, but we’re sure the folks at Honda’s Marysville, Ohio assembly plant would beg to differ. Yesterday, a silver 2013 Accord EX-L sedan earmarked for South Korea rolled off the line, making it the one-millionth vehicle Honda has exported from the US over the last 25 years. More importantly, Honda also announced that by 2014, it plans to export more cars from the US than it imports from Japan.

Starting with the very first Honda exported to Taiwan from Ohio in 1987, the automaker has exported more than $22-billion worth of vehicles and vehicle parts, with 1994 standing as a record year in which 105,511 vehicles were shipped out. This year, Honda and Acura have 11 models that are exported out of the US accounting for almost 100,000 units shipped to more than 40 countries. With a goal of increasing production capacity from 1.63 million units up to 1.92 million units by 2014, Honda expects to “far surpass” its 1994 export record.

Forgive us for having the distinct feeling of déjà vu, but it certainly feels like we’ve been here before. By that we are referring Car and Driver and the announcement of its annual 10Best vehicles for 2013. To be sure, it’s an impressive selection of cars that combine heart-pounding performance and frugal sensibilities, but it also represents something of a broken record on the part of C/D. We’re not so sure that’s a flaw, though, as the resulting list is tough to argue with.

Vehicles like the Ford Mustang, Porsche Boxster, and BMW 3 Series have maintained their high-horsepower spots on this list for several years now. Even on the more practical and nimble end, the Honda Accord, Honda Fit and Mazda Miata have not budged. These continued spots are even in light of redesigns for some vehicles such as the Accord, Boxster and 3 Series.

In fact, the only newcomer to the 10Best list this year are the Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ twins, which knocked out the Cadillac CTS-V. We think it would have been a huge misstep to have excluded the FR-S/BRZ, even in light of the supercharged Caddy’s lamentable departure from 10Best.

Without further ado, here are 2012 Car and Driver 10Best winners:

After perusing our gallery of the winners, bounce on over to Car and Driver to check out the full 10Best roundup, along with a collection of videos on each car. Be sure to let us know in Comments what you think of this year’s list!

Car and Driver magazine has named the all-new 2013 Honda Accord and the Honda Fit as winners of its prestigious and highly competitive annual ‘10Best Cars‘ award. Now in its ninth generation, the Accord has achieved ’10Best Cars’ status 27 times in the 31 years that Car and Driver editors have been conducting the competition, more than any other vehicle in the award’s history. The Honda Fit has been honored with “10Best Cars” status in each of the seven years that it has been on sale in the United States.

“The Accord and Fit both embody Honda’s core values of ingenious packaging, great visibility, fun driving dynamics and fuel efficiency,” said Michael Accavitti, vice president of marketing operations for American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “The editors of Car and Driver continue to recognize these attributes and our vehicles as among the  industry’s best, a sentiment clearly echoed by Honda’s customers.”

The Fit has been sold in the U.S. since the 2007 model year and is manufactured in Sayama, Japan. The Accord has been sold in the U.S. since the 1976 model year and this year marks 30 years of Accord manufacturing in America1.
