Honda Advanced Safety Features

Honda Basic Safety Features begin with the body of the vehicle and the equipped airbags. The ACE™ body structure works to enhance occupant safety by more evenly distributing crash energy throughout the vehicle. Each Honda comes with multiple dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags to help protect you in the event of a crash.
Honda Lane Departure Warning (LDW) helps you to remain in your lane and gives you a warning if you veer to one side or the other.
Honda Road Departure Mitigation™ If you are traveling 45 to 90 mph and drift close to the side of the road without a turn signal, the RDM will alert you with steering wheel vibrations. If you continue to leave the road, the RDM will apply steering torque and braking to help keep you in the detected lane.
Honda Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) If your vehicle begins to move out of the center of your lane without a turn signal activated, the steering will adjust to help keep you centered.
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) Working in conjunction with the LKAS, the ACC uses the camera and radar to measure the distance of vehicles ahead of your car, and their changing speeds. The ACC will help to regulate your speed in relation to your distance from other cars.
Forward Collision Warning (FCW) FCW works in conjunction with the Collision Mitigated Braking System™ (CMBS™). If the FCW determines that you are at risk for a collision with a vehicle it has detected, it activates alerts, both audio and visual, to warn you of the risk. Then, if you do not act, the CMBS™ will automatically apply braking pressure to help you avoid an accident.
Collision Mitigation Braking System™ helps you avoid collisions by applying braking pressure when your vehicle’s camera and radar detect the possibility of a crash.
