Honda technology amenities include some of the most advanced connectivity and safety features, letting you stay connected and feel safe behind the wheel. Features like Apple Car Play, Android Auto, and HondaLink telematics make for seamless connectivity while Honda Sensing safety features give you a new kind of peace of mind.
The best way to see all of these features is to get behind the wheel for a test drive at a New England Honda Dealer, but first we have an overview of what makes these technologies special.
Each new Honda vehicle comes standard with Bluetooth HandsFreeLink for phone and audio, but if you’ve ever used a vehicle Bluetooth interface, you know they might not match up seamlessly with your phone. That’s why many Honda vehicles come with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto software to integrate your smartphone with your car just like they were made for each other.
With HondaLink telematics, you can check the specs of your car from the phone, tablet, or computer—anywhere with an Internet connection. Of course, there’s so much more to HondaLink than just having an app that knows your car as well as you do. HondaLink Next Generation has its own apps as well as an app launcher for approved third-party apps in your vehicle.
The current lineup of Honda vehicles all come standard with a rearview camera system that gives you a clear look at the space behind your vehicle before backing up. In addition to this piece of safety tech and standbys like stability and traction control, anti-lock brakes, seatbelts, and airbags, select new Honda models have advanced accident prevention features available in the Honda Sensing package.
Honda vehicles are some of the world’s safest cars thanks to Honda Sensing features, which include:
Lane Departure Warning: By monitoring the markings on the road, this safety system can detect when you leave your lane; if you didn’t signal, audio and visual alerts will bring your focus back to the road.
Lane Keeping Assist: Like Lane Departure Warning, this system monitors the lane you are in, but if it notices you drifting, it can give the wheel a nudge in the right direction to keep you centered.
Road Departure Mitigation: This feature is active when driving from 45-90 mph, and if it senses you could be leaving the road without intending to, the steering wheel will vibrate rapidly to alert you. Road Departure Mitigation can even apply the brakes and adjust the torque to keep you in your lane.
Adaptive Cruise Control: By monitoring the vehicles around you, the Adaptive Cruise Control system is able to tweak your cruising speed and let you enjoy the drive.
Forward Collision Warning: By combining with the Collision Mitigation Braking system, Forward Collision Warning is able to alert you to the potential of colliding with a vehicle in front of you and slow or stop your car to help prevent an accident.
Collision Mitigation Braking: If the warnings from the Forward Collision Warning system don’t give you enough time to come to a stop, the Collision Mitigation Braking system knows when to brake via a radar sensor, slowing or stopping your vehicle.
