Honda Accord Active Safety Features

Active safety features are responsible for heightening your awareness and keeping you in full control. Essentially, they’re designed to reduce the likelihood of an accident occurring, and the Honda Accord fits the following active safety features as standard:

  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Dynamic Guidelines
  • Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control
  • Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)
  • Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD)
  • Brake Assist
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
  • LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL)

Honda Accord Passive Safety Features

One key component behind the Honda Accord safety rating is the Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) Body Structure, which crumples intelligently upon impact to direct harmful impact energy away from the passenger compartment. It’s one of the Honda Accord’s many passive safety features, which are responsible for keeping you from harm in the unlikely event of an accident occurring.

Further passive safety features include:

  • Advanced Front Airbags
  • SmartVent® Front Side Airbags
  • Side Curtain Airbags with Rollover Sensor
  • Driver’s and Front Passenger’s Knee Airbags
  • 3-Point Seat Belts at all Seating Positions
  • Front 3-Point Seat Belts with Automatic Tensioning System
  • Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren (LATCH): Lower Anchors (2nd-Row Outboard), Tether Anchors (2nd-Row All)
  • Driver’s and Front Passenger’s Seat-Belt Reminder
  • Child-Proof Rear Door Locks

    Standard Driver-Assist Technology

    Accord drivers are used to receiving premium features as standard, so you shouldn’t be surprising to find the following Honda Sensing® technologies fitted with even the entry-level LX:


    • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™): CMBS scans ahead to detect any potential collisions and provide visual and audible alerts that help you take corrective actions to avoid them. It can even apply the brakes to reduce the force of an unavoidable collision.
    • Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM): A windshield-mounted camera can identify the side of the road, including painted lane lines, Botts’ Dots, and cat’s-eye markers. If you’re detected about to leave the road, a message on the MID will alert you and the vehicle will be guided back to its detected lane.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow: Controls your preset cruising speed to maintain a safe distance between your Honda Accord and the vehicle ahead. Low-Speed Follow is ideal for driving through stop-and-go traffic.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS): Helps you stay centered in a detected lane by applying mild corrective steering torque if the vehicle starts to drift towards the side of that lane.
  • Traffic Sign Recognition System (TSR): Reads and remembers the road signs that your Honda passes, then puts it on your display screen to ensure you always know the limit.

    Available Driver-Assist Technology

    The Honda Sensing suite provides a phenomenal level of standard safety, and you can enhance your driving experience even more with the following available features:

    • Blind Spot Information System (BSI) with Cross Traffic Monitor: The BSI lets you know when a vehicle enters your blind spot area and provides an alert if you attempt to change lanes before it leaves. The Cross Traffic Monitor lets you know when vehicles are approaching from the side as you reverse.
    • Auto High-Beam Headlights: Switches high beams on when no vehicles are detected ahead and then off when one comes your way or passes in front of you.
    • Head-Up Display (HUD): Lets you keep your eyes on the road by projecting vital information into your line of sight.
