ON GUARD

We understand that some accidents are difficult to avoid. That’s why we include Passive Safety features in every Honda we build, to help minimize injury when the worst happens. See for yourself how they work.

Recognizing some collisions still happen, we designed a body structure that is engineered to absorb and distribute energy to help reduce the severity of frontal impacts.

Front airbags come standard in every Honda, and side curtain and front knee airbags up the protection factor.

Equipped with pretensioners and load limiters, our front seat belts are designed to retract when strong frontal impact occurs and loosen slightly if the load is too great, helping reduce pressure on the occupant.

What is Honda Sensing®?

Honda Sensing® is our exclusive intelligent suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies

designed to alert you to things you might miss while driving.

Adjusts steering to help you keep centered in a detected lane. LKAS only assists driver in maintaining proper lane position when lane markings are identified without a turn signal in use and can only apply mild steering torque to assist. LKAS may not detect all lane markings; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed and road condition. System operation affected by extreme interior heat. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions.

Maintains a set following interval behind detected vehicles. ACC cannot detect all objects ahead and may not detect a given object; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed and other factors. ACC should not be used in heavy traffic, poor weather or on winding roads. The driver remains responsible to slow or stop the vehicle to avoid a collision.

Adjusts steering and braking if you cross detected lanes without signaling. RDM only alerts drivers when lane drift is detected without a turn signal in use and can apply mild steering torque to assist driver in maintaining proper lane position and/or brake pressure to slow the vehicle’s departure from a detected lane. RDM may not detect all lane markings or lane departures; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed and road condition. System operation affected by extreme interior heat. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions.

CMBS applies brake pressure when an unavoidable collision is determined. CMBS cannot detect all objects ahead and may not detect a given object; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed and other factors. System operation affected by extreme interior heat. System designed to mitigate crash forces. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions.

LDW can detect unindicated lane departures from detected lanes. Alerts will flash and sound to help bring your attention to correcting the lane drift. LDW only alerts drivers when lane drift is detected without a turn signal in use. LDW may not detect all lane markings or lane departures; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed and road condition. System operation affected by extreme interior heat. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions.

FCW uses a camera on the windshield to detect vehicles in front of you, activating audio and visual alerts to warn you if you are at risk of a collision. FCW cannot detect all objects ahead and may not detect a given object; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed and other factors. System operation affected by extreme interior heat. FCW does not include a braking function. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions.

More Driver-Assistive Technology

Learn about a few additional Honda Sensing®

features designed to help you be a better driver.

With Honda LaneWatch, any time you signal right, the camera on the passenger-side mirror will turn on and display live video on your Display Audio Touch-Screen, revealing nearly four times more than the average passenger-side mirror. Honda LaneWatch display accuracy will vary based on weather, size of object and speed, and the display may not show all relevant traffic. The display is not a substitute for your own direct visual assessment of traffic conditions before changing lanes. Available on select 2017 and 2018 models.

When your turn signal is on and a vehicle is detected in an adjacent lane, the indicator blinks and a beep sounds until the area is clear or the turn signal is off. Blind Spot Information System is not a substitute for your own visual assessment before changing lanes. BSIS may not detect all objects behind or to the side of a vehicle and may not detect a given object; system accuracy will vary based on weather, size of object, and speed. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions. Available on select 2017 and 2018 models.

When in reverse with the Multi-Angle Rearview Camera in any viewing mode, the driver is alerted to a detected vehicle approaching from the side with a series of beeps and indicators shown on the camera’s display. Cross Traffic Monitor (CTM) always visually confirm that it is safe to drive before backing up, as the CTM may not provide complete information about conditions at the rear of your vehicle. Monitor cannot detect all objects behind or to the side of a vehicle and may not detect a given object; system accuracy will vary based on weather, size of object, and speed. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions. Available on select 2017 and 2018 models.

Active Safety Features

Choose from three different angles — normal, top-down and wide — to get a better view of what’s behind you every time you shift into reverse. Available on select 2017 and 2018 models.
