Small overlap front: driver-side

Rating applies to 2019 models

Tested vehicle: 2016 Honda Pilot EX 4-door 4wd
The Honda Pilot was redesigned for the 2016 model year, and the Honda Passport was introduced in the 2019 model year. The Passport is derived from the Pilot, but it has a slightly shorter overall length and only two rows of seats instead of three. Ratings apply to both the Pilot and Passport.

Restraints and dummy kinematics

Action shot taken during the driver-side small overlap frontal crash test.

The dummy's position in relation to the door frame, steering wheel, and instrument panel after the crash test indicates that the driver's survival space was maintained well.

The frontal and side curtain airbags worked well together to keep the head from coming close to any stiff structure or outside objects that could cause injury.

The driver's space was maintained well, and risk of injuries to the dummy's legs and feet was low.

Small overlap front: passenger-side

Rating applies to 2019 models

Tested vehicle: 2018 Honda Pilot EX 4-door 4wd
The Honda Pilot was redesigned for the 2016 model year, and the Honda Passport was introduced in the 2019 model year. The Passport is derived from the Pilot, but it has a slightly shorter overall length and only two rows of seats instead of three. Ratings apply to both the Pilot and Passport.

Passenger restraints and dummy kinematics
The dummy’s head barely contacted the frontal airbag before sliding off the right side, allowing the head to move far enough forward to hit the dashboard. The side curtain airbag deployed and has sufficient forward coverage to protect the head from contact with side structure and outside objects. The side torso airbag also deployed.

Driver restraints and dummy kinematics

Action shot taken during the passenger-side small overlap frontal crash test.

The dummy's position in relation to the door frame and dashboard after the crash test indicates that the passenger’s survival space was maintained well.

The dummy’s head slid off the right side of the frontal airbag and moved far enough forward to hit the dashboard hard.

Forces on the right lower leg were high enough to indicate a moderate risk of injury.

Moderate overlap front

Rating applies to 2019 models

Tested vehicle: 2016 Honda Pilot Touring 4-door 4wd
The Honda Pilot was redesigned for the 2016 model year. Moderate overlap frontal ratings are assigned by the Institute based on a test conducted by Honda as part of frontal crash test verification. The ratings also apply to the Honda Passport, introduced in the 2019 model year. The Passport is derived from the Pilot, but it has a slightly shorter overall length and only two rows of seats instead of three.

Headlights

Ratings are given for 2 different headlight variations available on this vehicle.

Trim level(s)

  • Elite trim
  • Touring trim
Low-beam headlight type LED reflector
High-beam headlight type LED reflector
Curve-adaptive? No
High-beam assist? Yes
Overall rating

Low beams
On the straightaway, visibility was good on both sides of the road. On curves, visibility was good on the sharp left and both right curves and fair on the gradual left curve.

The low beams created excessive glare.

High beams
On the straightaway, visibility was good on both sides of the road. On curves, visibility was good on the gradual left and both right curves and fair on the sharp left curve.

High-beam assist compensates for some limitations of this vehicle's low beams on both left curves.

Trim level(s)

  • Sport trim
  • EX-L trim
Low-beam headlight type LED projector
High-beam headlight type Halogen reflector

High-beam assist? Yes
Overall rating

Low beams
On the straightaway, visibility was good on both sides of the road. On curves, visibility was good on the gradual right curve and fair on the sharp right and both left curves.

The low beams created excessive glare.

High beams
On the straightaway, visibility was good on the right side of the road and inadequate on the left side. On curves, visibility was good on the gradual right curve and fair on the sharp right and both left curves.

High-beam assist compensates for some limitations of this vehicle's low beams on both left curves and on both right curves.
