The first kind of safety features we’ll look at is active safety—in the form of Honda Sensing. These features are those that kick into gear as soon as you step into the vehicle and keep you safe until you step out. With the help of these great features, you can sit back and relax, knowing that your family is safe. A few of these important features are as follows:
Vehicle Stability Assist – With added traction control, this system makes sure that drivers always have total control over the vehicle regardless of weather or terrain.
LED Daytime Running Lights – Visibility is important, and daytime running lights ensure that you can see other vehicles and they can see you, regardless of the time of day.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System – When your tire pressure gets low, your car isn’t performing as well as it could be, which is why this alert system will let you know when it’s time to refill.
Multi-Angle Rearview Camera – Equipped with dynamic guidelines, this monitoring system provides drivers the ability to see behind their vehicle from three different viewpoints.
Collision Mitigation Braking System – If your vehicle gets too close to the one in front of you, this system will bring the car to a stop in an attempt to prevent a collision. Additionally, the Forward Collision Warning uses a series of audio and visual alerts to let you know of a potential collision, giving you time to brake before the Collision Mitigation System kicks in.
Road Departure Mitigation System – Make sure that you stay on the road with the help of a system that will alert you and correct your steering if you start to veer off. Similarly, the Lane Departure Warning System alerts you when you begin to drift from your designated lane without signaling a lane change.
Passive safety features are just as, if not more, important than active safety features, since they only come into play in the case of an emergency. They are there to ensure that if there is an accident everyone and everything in the cabin is as safe as possible. Some of these amazing features include:
Driver-assist features are more interactive ways for the driver to practice safe driving habits and avoid danger proactively. Basically, they work to help prevent the need for passive safety features to kick into action. You can view a few of these features and what they do below:
Adaptive Cruise Control – This cruise control system takes things up a notch from the traditional kind and is able to set following speeds and read road signs to adjust speed when needed.
Auto High-Beam Headlights – When less-than-ideal weather hits, drivers can focus on what’s in front of them instead of fiddling with switches and gears to increase visibility.
Blind Spot Information System – This system lets you know when there’s a vehicle in your blind spot.
Cross Traffic Monitor – Before you back out of a parking space in a crowded lot, this system will check to make sure there are no vehicles approaching from the side, allowing you to safely reverse.
