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. But it is a bit more connected than before with the newly available compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for its touchscreen infotainment system. Buyers will shell out a bit more money for the 2017 Pilot, as prices rise by $200 to $300, depending on trim level.
The smartphone mirroring features are standard on all Pilot models except for the base LX, which makes do with a smaller 5.0-inch touchscreen. EX and higher trim levels have an 8.0-inch screen in the center stack, which now has a different coating meant to minimize fingerprints. Unfortunately, the frustrating volume-control slider remains?let’s hope a volume knob like the one on the new 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; and the top-dog, $47,950 Elite. As before, all-wheel drive is $1800 extra on all trims except for the Elite, which has it standard.The Elite and Touring also come standard with the Honda Sensing package, which includes all manner of active-safety features (it’s a $1000 option on the EX and EX-L), a rear-seat entertainment system ($1600 extra on the EX-L), and built-in navigation ($1000 extra on the EX-L).
