With a family, every day spent in Arizona is an adventure. After all, you’ve got weekend excursions to the Grand Canyon, tailgating trips to University of Phoenix Stadium, and endless deserts to not get lost in. But if you don’t have a vehicle catered to the modern American family, those adventures could turn into the misadventures all parents fear. To avoid the incessant “are we there yet” interrogations, make the change to a new Honda Pilot. Here are the five best reasons to treat your family to this full-size Honda SUV.

  1. Tri-Zone Automatic Climate Control

Billy’s sweating in the very back. Sophia thinks she’s turning into a popsicle in the middle row. And you’re having a meltdown in the driver’s seat. Situation sound familiar? With the 2017 Honda Pilot, you won’t have to cater to everyone’s body temperature because every seat is first-class. Each zone is independently controlled, allowing Billy to cool off while Sophia gets toasty. There’s even Humidity Control and Air Filtration features. Ooh la la.

  1. Multiple Plug-Ins

  • 5 USB Ports – Standard USB charging outlets are available in the front and back seats. Charge smart phones, tablets, vape pens—anything that could be charged via USB, will be charged via USB.
  • 3 12V Outlets – Although most 12-volt accessory sockets have been replaced by USB ports, they aren’t obsolete yet. Honda knows that there’s still a need for the higher power output to juice up CB radios, power-hungry laptops, and external GPS units, among others.
  • 2 Auxiliary Jacks – Two sets of earbuds can be plugged into these aux inputs, allowing you to fill the cabin with your own music, not the Frozen Soundtrack.

(And a partridge in a pear tree.)

Updated 9-Inch Rear Entertainment System

  1. Updated 9-Inch Rear Entertainment System

Available on the Pilot EX-L and standard on the Touring and Elite trims, this large 9-inch screen is compatible with DVD and Blu-Ray Discs™, which means Sophia can watch her Shopkins cartoons with eyes glazed over. The 2017 Pilot also features an additional 115-volt power outlet and separate HDMI port, so Billy can plug in a gaming console when he’s had enough Kooky Cookie and Apple Blossom to last a lifetime.

  1. All the Musics!

We’ve discussed the Pilot’s inclusion of Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ before, so a refresher isn’t necessary. Still, with other streaming stations like Pandora® and SiriusXM®, as well as HD Radio™ and standard Bluetooth® connectivity, you’ll never be without a beat inside the Honda Pilot. Honda’s Song by Voice® system even makes it simpler to pull up your preferred playlist, so all you’ll have to worry about is adjusting the decibel level of the SUV’s upgraded 540-watt, 10-speaker audio system.

  1. Honda Sensing™ is Sweet

What kind of Honda dealers would we be if we’d left out Honda Sensing’s suite of advanced safety features? Available on the Pilot EX and EX-L and standard on Touring and Elite models, Honda Sensing comes with Collision Mitigation Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist, and Road Departure Mitigation, among other driver-assist and passive safety systems. The key to your family’s safety is the same key to your IIHS Top Safety Pick+-winning Honda Pilot.
