Honda Sensing Safety Technology

Honda models use a vast range of active and passive safety features to avoid accidents and protect you from harm in the unlikely event of a collision. Honda Sensing technology is the ace up their sleeve. It comes as standard with many models and is available across the board to enhance your awareness, warn you of danger, and even act independently to prevent a collision.

Features include:

IIHS Safety Awards

The IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) tests models each year and provides a select few with Top Safety Pick and Top Safety Pick+ awards. They keep making the criteria tougher, but Honda models keep winning.
