Additional Features
Engine & Drivetrain
  • Efficient engine
    The Pioneer 520’s liquid-cooled engine is mounted longitudinally. By orienting the crankshaft front to back in the chassis, the flow of power is straight to the wheels without any right angle detours, reducing powertrain friction and putting more grunt to the ground.
  • Ample ground clearance
    By using an overhead-valve layout and a semi-dry-sump lubrication system, engine height is significantly reduced, lowering centre of gravity while also improving ground clearance.
  • Tackle any terrain
    Shiftable 2WD/4WD system provides the efficiency of two-wheel drive while retaining the ability to select 4WD quickly via a dash-mounted lever when conditions demand.
  • Advanced transmission
    The availability of both automatic and manual shifting functions gives you the best of both worlds. Choose AT mode for fully automatic shifting, or override the AT settings on the fly with paddle shifters mounted on the steering wheel. Want to shift manually? Simply choose MT mode and operate the five speed transmission manually with the paddle shifters. It’s the best of all worlds.
  • Smooth shifting
    By re-tuning the transmission’s automatic-mode shift map, engineers were able to reduce shift shock for even smoother operation.
  • Crisp performance
    Electronic fuel-injection system provides crisp performance and helps ensure trouble-free starting and operation in cold conditions and changing altitudes.
  • Accessory power
    Powerful 481 watt AC generator has generous output to run electronic accessories.
  • Low noise
    The stainless steel exhaust system keeps noise levels low while also including a certified spark arrester for when you’re riding in regulated or sensitive environments.
Chassis & Suspension
  • Durable construction
    A strong steel chassis is designed to help the Pioneer 520 remain stable in rough going, and its heavy-duty construction will help it stand up to rough punishment on the job site or recreational trail.
  • Improved handling & comfort
    The independent front and rear suspension systems — with improved spring rates, damping performance and updated front A-arms — provide comfort and control over even tough terrain. Plus, the rear swaybar has been removed to make for an even smoother ride.
  • Dynamic control
    With 147 mm (5.8 in.) of front suspension travel and 150 mm (5.9 in.) at the rear, plus 217 mm (8.5 in.) of ground clearance, the Pioneer 520 can negotiate difficult terrain with ease.
  • Roomy seating
    Roomy cab and bench seat are designed for a comfortable fit for two. Twin cup holders make it easier to stay hydrated when stopping for a rest out on the trails or work site.
  • Towing ability
    Heavy-duty receiver-style hitch lets you tow up to 453 kg (1,000 lb).
Additional Features
  • Durable tilt box
    Working with a heavy load just got a whole lot easier. The Pioneer 520’s gas-assisted tilt box can carry a full 450 lb of wood, gravel, tools, and feed with a slot for 3/4 inch plywood and patterned slots shaped into the bed for milk crates and buckets. And with a secure tailgate and a suite of available Pro-ConnectTM modular accessories, you might never run out of ways to put your Pioneer to work. But when it is time to take a break, enjoy the added comfort of the cup holder rings in the tailgate.
  • Easier maintenance
    Attractive, rugged bodywork gives the Pioneer 520 an aggressive, functional look. The easily removable hood and seat cushions, plus the repositioned battery and air filter, also help to simplify maintenance.
  • Smart design
    Waterproof accessory socket provides convenient 12-volt power whenever you need it.
  • Safety first
    High sill doors, integrated headrests, protective door nets, automotive-type 3-point Emergency Locking Retractor (ELR) seat belts and stout Occupant Protection Structure help to keep driver and passenger secure. For added safety, a speed limiter prevents travel faster than 24 km/h if it detects that a seat belt isn’t being worn.
  • Easy entry
    Clever rear-hinged door design allows the nets to remain attached when opening the doors, easing entry and exit. Doors feature a single-handed twist-action release mechanism, equally accessible from both inside and outside the Pioneer 520. Automotive-style double latches allow the doors to latch securely when pulled shut.
  • Bright illumination
    Twin-headlight system features 37.5-watt headlights with a focused light distribution pattern for improved visibility after dark. LED brake lights and taillights provide optimal illumination and conspicuity.
  • Information at a glance
    The easy-read digital dash includes a large speedometer, gear position indicator, fuel gauge, maintenance minder, and warning lights for critical engine and drivetrain functions.
  • Helpful accessories
    A wide array of easy to install Pro-ConnectTM modular accessories, including numerous ways to add storage and carrying ability, contribute to the Pioneer 520’s versatility. Plus, trusted Honda durability, quality and reliability help improve retained value over the life of the machine.
