Safety technology is the most important feature of any vehicle. As such, Honda has developed a suite of innovative and active safety technologies for its current lineup, called Honda Sensing® technology. This collection of advanced safety features is available on almost every new Honda model that is available here at Love Honda.
Here is what Honda Sensing includes:
Collision Mitigation Braking System™
The Collision Mitigation Braking System (also called CMBS™) can detect an impending front end collision—even when you cannot. When the system determines that you are not going to appropriately react to an issue in time, it will engage the brakes for you. However, in most scenarios, the system can only brake enough to reduce the impact of the collision, rather than prevent it all together. As such, you should not rely on this system to do the driving for you, but think of it as a last resort.
Road Departure Mitigation System
Similarly, the Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM) can detect if you are veering into another lane (or off the road) without signaling. If the system detects this action, it will adjust your braking and steering until you are safely back in your lane. This system is engaged when your vehicle’s speed is between 45 and 90 miles an hour.
Adaptive Cruise Control
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is the next phase of cruise control as we have known it for decades. Rather than maintaining a set speed, it allows you to maintain a consistent distance behind the vehicle in front of you, even adjusting if that vehicle brakes.
Lane Keeping Assist System
The Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) works at speeds above 45 miles an hour. When the system detects you unintentionally drifting from your lane, it will re-center you in your appropriate lane.
Traffic Sign Recognition
Hate it when you haven’t noticed the posted speed limit? Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR) can detect those signs with a small camera and notify you of the current limit and when it changes.
