Pioneer DEH-X8700DAB review

A clean and stylish design sets the Pioneer apart.

Pioneer DEH-X8700DAB
Overall Auto Express Rating

3.0 out of 5

Best price: £168.24 Type: Single DIN

A clean and stylish design sets the Pioneer apart, and as well as DAB technology, you get USB and auxiliary connectivity. But as some buttons found on previous-generation models have been removed from this head unit, the remaining switches have doubled up in functionality and can make navigation a bit confusing. For example, the ring behind the volume knob skips through the station choices, which isn’t especially intuitive when on the move.
