2016 Honda Pilot Elite at Pacific Honda

When you’re in the market for a new SUV in San Diego, the options can feel overwhelming. Even after you narrow down your selection to a specific brand, you’ll often encounter multiple SUV models and trim levels to boot. But if you’re struggling with your car research process, you’ve come to the right place! Allow Pacific Honda, your trusted local San Diego Honda dealer, to introduce you to one of our favorite SUVs in the new Honda lineup: the 2016 Honda Pilot Elite.

Compared to lower trim levels, the 2016 Honda Pilot Elite offers interior luxuries and enhanced capabilities galore. On the inside, that means heated and ventilated front seats, as well as a heated steering wheel and heated second-row captain’s chairs for your passengers. You’ll also enjoy a panoramic roof and LED headlights featuring auto on/off capability and auto high beams. On the safety side, the 2016 Honda Pilot Elite steps up with blind spot information, cross-traffic monitoring and an intelligent variable torqued management all-wheel drive system that makes sure your ride is safe and stable no matter what the elements throw your way. Additional sophisticated safety measures include a multi-angle rearview camera, forward collision warning and a road departure mitigation system.

Adding to the driving experience in the 2016 Honda Pilot Elite is the rear entertainment system, which allows the kids to enjoy their favorite Blu-rays on a stunning nine-inch screen. Meanwhile, the adults will similarly appreciate the eight-inch display audio touch screen in the front, which enables you to touch and swipe your way through music, podcasts and more.

Under the hood, the 2016 Honda Pilot Elite rocks a powerful V6 that delivers up to 280 horsepower. Mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission that helps improve fuel efficiency, the powertrain on this model also features idle-stop, which automatically turns off the engine when the vehicle stops in order to conserve more fuel. Additional performance-enhancing features include intelligent traction management, which capitalizes on this year’s improved torque distribution to excel in low-traction conditions.
