Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2022 Honda Pilot has a score of 88, implying a 0.031% chance of driver death (2.8% chance of injury).

We estimate that the 2022 Honda Pilot has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0309% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 3.5254%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0309% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 3.5254% chance of being injured.

Honda's Honda Sensing active safety features can protect loved ones by reducing accident severity and preventing accidents. All trims and versions of the 2022 Honda Pilot include the following active safety systems: Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM) with Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), and Blind Spot Information System.

Another advanced safety feature --- while not cutting edge --- can still improve vehicle safety. Side mirror turn signals are standard on the Honda Pilot. They alert other vehicles of your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other vehicle's driver to prevent an impending accident with you.
