Whether you are driving solo or toting around your family, you want to stay safe on the road. You can do your part by staying alert and following the traffic laws. Sometimes, though, that’s not enough. Fortunately, the Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver-assistance technologies can step in and provide an extra level of protection. These features come standard on many of Honda’s most popular vehicles, including the 2021 Accord, CR-V, Pilot, and Civic. Learn more about the top Honda Sensing features to see how they can help you when you’re driving in Greenville, NC, and beyond.
Collision Mitigation Braking System
It’s hard to react in time if someone drives or walks in front of your vehicle without warning. Fortunately, the collision mitigation braking system can take over for you. The system monitors the road in front of you, checking for pedestrians and other vehicles. If you get too close to a person or a car, it will send a warning and apply the brake so you can avoid a collision.
Road Departure Mitigation System
Drifting out of your lane is dangerous for you and other drivers. The road departure mitigation system alerts you if you leave your lane without signaling. It can also adjust the steering wheel to get you back in your lane and apply the brakes if needed.
Adaptive Cruise Control
Do you like the idea of using cruise control but feel frustrated when you encounter slow-moving vehicles? You have to slow down, which cancels the cruise control. Then you need to reset it when the road is clear. You won’t have to worry about that when you drive a Honda with adaptive cruise control. Your car will monitor the road in front of you and adjust the speed as needed. It will slow down if necessary and then speed back up to your desired speed once the road is clear.
Traffic Sign Recognition
Keeping up with the speed limit can be hard work, especially if you’re on the road for very long. The speed limit can change several times, so you might end up driving faster than you should. The traffic sign recognition system alerts you to the speed limit every time you pass a sign. The camera reads the speed limit and shows it on the dash or heads-up display. Then you can make adjustments as necessary.
Blind Spot Information System
Blind spots make changing lanes a challenge. You can eliminate that challenge and change lanes with ease with help from the blind spot information system. It monitors vehicles in the lanes next to you. If you turn on your turn signal to change lanes, the system will alert you if a car is in your blind spot. This helps you avoid accidents on the road.
