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.

- Road Departure Mitigation (RDM)
- Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
- Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
- Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
