Connected Crossover: Honda Pilot Adds Apple CarPlay/Android Auto for 2017
The Honda Pilot crossover doesn’t look, drive, or feel any different for 2017. although the idea can be a bit more connected than before with the newly available compatibility with Apple CarPlay as well as Android Auto for its touchscreen infotainment system. Buyers will shell out a bit more money for the 2017 Pilot, as prices rise by $0 to $300, depending on trim level.
The smartphone mirroring features are standard on all Pilot types except for the base LX, which makes do which has a smaller 5.0-inch touchscreen. EX as well as higher trim levels have an 8.0-inch screen from the center stack, which at that will point incorporates a different coating meant to minimize fingerprints. Unfortunately, the frustrating volume-control slider remains—let’s trust a volume knob like the one on the fresh 2017 CR-V comes to the Pilot sooner rather than later.
Pilot sticks with its four trim levels: the $31,475 LX; the $33,910 EX; the $37,335 EX-L; the $42,550 Touring; as well as the top-dog, $47,950 Elite. As before, all-wheel drive can be $1800 extra on all trims except for the Elite, which has the idea standard. The Elite as well as Touring also come standard with the Honda Sensing package, which includes all manner of active-safety features (the idea’s a $1000 option on the EX as well as EX-L), a rear-seat entertainment system ($1600 extra on the EX-L), as well as built-in navigation ($1000 extra on the EX-L).
