2023 Honda Pilot Earns Top Safety Pick + from IIHS

The 2023 Honda Pilot is awarded the highest honour for safety: the IIHS Top Safety Pick +. The IIHS, known as the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is an independent, nonprofit scientific and educational organization. Notably, it dedicates itself to reducing deaths, injuries and property damage from motor vehicle crashes through research and evaluation. Additionally, by educating consumers, policymakers and safety professionals.

IIHS gave the Pilot a "SUPERIOR" rating for the vehicle-to-pedestrian avoidance system for both daytime and nighttime by either reducing the speed of the vehicle by 20 mph or completely avoiding a collision altogether.

With this award, a combined seven Honda models have earned IIHS’ TOP SAFETY PICK (TSP) rating or better for 2023, with four achieving the pinnacle TOP SAFETY PICK+ (TSP+) rating, including all-new for 2023 models: Honda Accord, HR-V, CR-V and of course the Honda Pilot.

As part of Honda's "Safety for Everyone" philosophy, which focuses on enhancing safety for all road users, Honda Sensing® now comes standard on every new Honda automobile model, including all Pilots. Here are some of the technologies available in new Honda models:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) with Pedestrian Detection 
  • Forward Collision Warning (FCW)
  • Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) incorporating Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
