Honda Adds Largest and Most Powerful SUV to Qatar Fleet – Introducing the Reimagined ‘Honda Pilot’
The completely reimagined bolder and bigger Honda Pilot is another exciting addition to the brand’s ‘Advanced and Sporty’ lineup
The Honda Pilot offers a rugged new styling, increased space for both passengers and cargo and a class-leading combination of off-road capability and sporty on-road dynamics – a perfect embodiment of the brand’s ‘Advanced and Sporty’ strategy.
With a bolder, more assertive appearance, the tough and aspirational design of the Pilot features a large upright grille, a powerful stance accentuated by flared fenders and a longer hood, underneath which is Honda’s most powerful V6 engine ever with VCM technology, an all-new dual overhead camshaft 3.5-litre producing 285hp and 355Nm torque.
The all-new 10-speed A/T of the new Pilot makes it easy to navigate challenging terrains. Its all-wheel-drive system is heavily improved, delivering confidence-inspiring stability, performance and traction.
The Active Shutter Grille also improves aerodynamics by closing when cooling airflow is not needed.
The Pilot was engineered to create the best possible driving experience – improvements made to the reinforced body structure and the way it distributes load weight result in a fun-to-drive SUV with a smooth ride and surprisingly nimble handling.
The interior is also larger, more comfortable and more flexible, with best-in-class overall passenger space and cargo volume behind the rear seats. The car has been designed with clean surfacing, sophisticated materials and premium touches, which makes it the most upscale Honda SUV ever.
In the second row, the middle seat can either be folded down, to provide an armrest and two cup holders for convenience. The seat can be completely removed, allowing walk-through access to the third row in the touring grade. The front seats are heated and ventilated while the second row seats are heated in the touring grade.
The Honda Pilot is also the most technologically advanced Pilot, with a standard 9” HD touchscreen display with support for Android Auto and wireless Apple Carplay and the Honda Sensing suite of driver assistance technologies. The touring grade further improves with a 12 Speakers Bose® Surround System, 10.2” Full Digital Driver information interface screen, Door Lining Illumination, Built-in Navigation system and Head-up Display.
With up to seven available modes, drivers can tailor the vehicle’s driving characteristics to their needs and surroundings. The newly upgraded i-VTM4® AWD system helps enhance stability on treacherous roads, improves dry-weather handling, and helps you carve corners smoothly.
In addition, the Pilot houses a sophisticated, fully independent suspension system that smooths each ride and provides excellent manoeuvrability, even on rocky trails.
With a starting price of QAR171,999, the Honda Pilot is now available to purchase in four grades – the EX, Sport, EX-L and Touring. Customers can check out the new Pilot at the Honda Showroom on East Industrial Area Road. Honda is exclusively distributed in Qatar by Doha Marketing Services Company (DOMASCO).
