Important Improvements with the 2012 Pilot

August 9th, 2012 by

If you are looking for a vehicle that’s not a minivan but has all the space that you need yet not too huge for the family, the 2012 Honda Pilot is a good choice for you. Honda decided to give the 2012 Pilot some modifications including a newer grille which made the vehicle look more manly and tough. The 2012 Pilot is powered up by a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that gives 250 horsepower plus a five-speed automatic transmission which if combined will give you an ultimately smooth and responsive driving experience. You will be amazed that even if it has tall driving position, handling is crisp and it is very easy to maneuver.

Another positive point of the 2012 Pilot is its fuel-efficiency with 17/24 mpg if 4-wheel drive is used or 18/25 mpg with front-wheel drive. There’s a cylinder-deactivation system that helps save on fuel consumption.

The interior of the 2012 Pilot cannot be overlooked, as well. This is one of the few cars that can accommodate adults comfortably in the third row. Front seats are spacious, as well and this is a very good position for long drives. You can slide the second-row seats for an easier access to the third row or just for more space.

Some safety features include side-curtain bags that cover all three rows. The 2012 Pilot is a Top Safety Pick and its test results are great, too. Other amazing car features include an i-MID. It is a color LCD screen where you can see trip computer and audio functions.

 There are optional features for other models since the Pilot is available in four different trims namely LX, EX, EX-L and Touring.
