2017 Honda Pilot Supports Apple CarPlay


Honda has been one of the more prominent supporters of CarPlay, the in-car system championed by Apple.

That includes the 2016 Accord, the 2016 Civic, and, most recently, the 2017 Civic Hatchback. And now the auto manufacturer is back again with another model in its lineup that supports the in-car system. Honda officially announced today that the 2017 Pilot will support CarPlay (and Android Auto) right out of the gate.

Specifically, the Honda Pilot EX and above features CarPlay support. There are 15 different variants of the new Pilot that support CarPlay. Owners will be able to interact with CarPlay with an eight-inch fingerprint resisting touchscreen.

“Honda was among the first automakers to incorporate Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, starting with the 2016 Accord and Civic. For 2017, Pilot EX and above trims will now feature Apple CarPlay ™ and Android Auto ™ functionality integrated into an improved 8-inch Display Audio touchscreen. These models will also see application of a new coating to reduce the appearance of fingerprints on the screen while retaining high glare resistance. Customer choice is also further enhanced for 2017 with extended availability of a black interior, now available on all trims optioned with the White Diamond Pearl exterior paint (previously available only on Elite).”

For those who might be interested in buying one, Honda confirmed the new 2017 Honda Pilot will launch on Monday, November 7. The Suggested retail pricing starts at $30,595 for the entry LX model, while the first EX variant will retail for $33,030.
