2016 Honda Pilot Idle-Stop

The idle-stop feature is standard on Pilot Touring and Elite trims—it helps maximize fuel efficiency in stop-and-go traffic. When the vehicle brakes to a stop for at least 2 seconds—such as at a traffic light—the engine automatically shuts off to save fuel. When you release the brake pedal even slightly, the engine starts back up by itself. The system is engineered to operate smoothly and seamlessly when restarting.
