Honda Pilot Receives Family Car of the Year
This headline does not come as a surprise. For years Honda has been praised for its safety, value, and above all, family friendly vehicles. This year’s award, given to the 2012 Honda Pilot, although not surprising is definitely well deserved. Honda has truly found the perfect balance between style, practicality, safety, and space.
With seating up to 8, the Honda Pilot allows the large family an option over the traditional minivan. This car has ample space for multiple bulky car seats, while still allowing for other passengers to ride comfortably. This automobile has the capacity to carry large loads just as a traditional SUV, however it does this all at an impressive *25 mpg on the highway.
While space is extremely important to a large family, there are many other options you will enjoy as a Honda Pilot owner. This redesigned SUV offers an optional navigation system with voice recognition and FM traffic as well as USB audio interface. An available power tailgate makes loading the car with your hands full a breeze, while the optional rearview camera helps you avoid the forgotten bicycle in your driveway. Your family will also enjoy some of the many options in the 2012 Honda Pilot. While relaxing in the back, your children can enjoy their favorite movie on Honda’s rear entertainment system.
Your family’s safety need not be a worry while driving the new Honda Pilot. The Pilot’s 4 wheel drive and VSA or vehicle stability assist options along with it’s impressive reputation for safety will give you peace of mind in any road conditions. The ACE body structure, an exclusive Honda safety feature, also gives you and your family added protection in the event of an accident.
So gear up for your next family vacation. The new 2012 Honda Pilot, this year’s family car of the year, is all you will need to get started on a successful trip. Enjoy the ride!
