The Honda Pilot scored a “poor” in the small overlap front test, leading to a low overall safety score. The driver’s space was seriously compromised by intruding structure. Lower interior intrusion measured as much as 42 cm at the parking brake pedal, and lower hinge pillar intrusion was 35 cm. Upper interior intrusion measured 26-28 cm at the hinge pillar and instrument panel. The steering column was pushed back 11 cm toward the driver. Measurements taken from the dummy indicate that injury to the left hip would be likely, and injury to the left knee and lower legs was possible. The dummy’s head barely contacted the frontal airbag before sliding off the left side as the steering column moved 14 cm to the right, leaving the head vulnerable to contact with forward side structure. The side curtain airbag deployed but does not have sufficient forward coverage to protect the head from contact with forward side structure and outside objects.
