On All Sides of Greenwich, You'll Find New York – Explore It from the Driver’s Seat of a 2017 Honda Pilot

Hitting the road from our eponymous Connecticut neighbor, you’ll find to the west and north the beautiful expanse of Westchester County, ripe territory for a road trip or shopping excursion. Head to the east, and you’ll reach the bustling burg of Stamford. The village of Bayville lies to the south, across Long Island Sound, prone to the crush of heavy snowfall off the water during winter's deep freeze for which a hard-charging SUV of all-terrain prowess is necessary. If the New York Daily News and this Greenwich area Honda dealer can offer some advice on that front, it’s to step behind the wheel of a 2017 Honda Pilot. The former just recently lauded the 2017 Pilot with a New York Daily News Autos Award in its Family SUV category.

The media outlet’s panel of eight journalists examined and scored vehicles based on overall experience and practicality for shoppers in search of a new SUV. The 2017 Honda Pilot, to be sure, wasn’t found wanting, showcasing accolades for expansive cargo capacity, cutting-edge infotainment technology to make the ride enjoyable, and impeccable crash-protection credentials.

Given the offerings under-hood and inside Honda Pilot, we at Honda of Westport can surely see what the reviewers mean. Behind striking style lines, you’ll find a cavernous and luxurious three-row interior bedecked with high-quality materials, with up to approximately 109 cubic feet of cargo volume depending on trim thanks to 60/40 split second- and third-row seating. 151.7 to 153.1 cubic feet of passenger space burgeons, accommodating up to eight fellow travelers for the ride. Plus, with an available 8-in Display Audio touchscreen complete with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support on 2017 Pilot EX and higher, they’re sure to have plenty of listening options.

They wouldn’t be without premium visuals, either. 2017 Honda Pilot makes available an optional rear entertainment system comprising a Blu-Ray™ Player with HDMI connectivity. It’s standard on 2017 Pilot EX-L and standard on Honda Pilot Touring and Elite, so it’s a snap to keep the kids or your gang of friends occupied for the duration.

Looking to remain as safe as possible on Greenwich roads with optimal situational awareness? 2017 Pilot has you covered. A durable Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure couples with exceptional scoring in crash tests. Plus, you’ll find a range of driver-assist tech optionally available, including the Honda Sensing suite, which incorporates collision and road departure mitigation features and forward collision and lane departure warnings.

Overall, though, 2017 Honda Pilot is not without, according to New York Daily News, the "smooth ride quality and agreeable driving dynamics" to make the grade. The family-size SUV builds in Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control for dependable balance and cornering you can rely on, as well as the energetic drive provided by a 280-horsepower, 24-valve SOHC i-VTEC V6 engine 256 pound-feet of pulling power. 2017 Pilot even makes available an Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ (i-VTM4™) AWD System in select trims.
