Honda Safety

March 16th, 2021 by

We know that the people who matter to you could be drivers or passengers in one of our own cars, occupants of another vehicle or even pedestrians. That’s why Honda looks beyond government regulations, studying real-world situations to develop new safety technologies for everyone.


ACE™ Body Structure

This Honda-exclusive body design enhances occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal collisions by distributing crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle.


Multiple Airbags

Every Honda is equipped with dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags to help protect you in the event of a collision. Select models are equipped with SmartVent® front side airbags and side curtain airbags with rollover sensor. Remember, though, that your seat belt is your primary mode of protection in any crash1.

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Dynamic Guidelines

Get a better view of what’s behind you with three different angles: normal, top-down and wide2.

Lane Departure Warning (LDW)

LDW can detect unindicated lane departures from detected lanes. Alerts will flash and sound to help bring your attention to correcting the lane drift3.

Road DepartureMitigation (RDM)

If your vehicle is detected drifting too close to the side of the road while driving 45–90 mph without a turn signal activated, RDM alerts you with rapid vibrations on the steering wheel. If you continue to leave the roadway, it can also apply steering torque and braking to help keep your vehicle in the detected lane4.

Forward CollisionWarning (FCW)

Integrated with the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), FCW uses a small camera mounted at the top of the front windshield to detect the presence of vehicles in front of you. If the FCW system determines that you are at risk of a collision with a detected vehicle, it activates audio and visual alerts to warn you5. If you fail to act, the CMBS will automatically apply brake pressure6.

Collision MitigationBraking System™ (CMBS™)

Utilizing a millimeter wave radar sensor, CMBS can help bring your Honda to a stop when the system determines that a collision with a vehicle detected in front of you is unavoidable. A warning sounds and, if necessary, brake pressure is automatically applied6.
