So, you just got behind the wheel of your Honda model and find yourself wondering, “What is Honda Sensing®?” After all, the ride so far has been smooth and fun, but along the way you’ve likely heard a few beeps, seen flashes, and even felt some gentle nudges without you touching the steering wheel. These are all a part of the driver-assist suite that aim to help you drive safer, more effortlessly, and with full confidence. Stick with us today as we delve into Honda Sensing and how it works—and don’t forget to visit Honda of Ocala today to test drive any models with these safety features to get a feel for how it all works, and can help you travel more securely.
Making your drives smarter and safer is all a part of the goal with Honda Sensing—which adds features to your ride like Collision Mitigation Braking System™(CMBS™) and Forward Collision Warning (standard for most Honda models). These features will not only warn you of detected obstacles ahead so that you can stop or swerve, but also hit the brakes for you if you don’t react to help reduce your chances of a costly fender bender. Meanwhile, Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM) automatically steers and brakes for you to help you avoid driving off a highway exit ramp or the road as a whole—helping prevent thousands of dollars of bodywork and reducing dangers you face while behind the wheel. When you’re in the middle of the highway or multi-lane road, Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) helps you avoid a side-swipe or from cutting off other drivers by warning you when you accidentally exit your detected lane without a turn signal. Take your lane watching to the next level with Blind Spot Information System, which looks out for hard-to-see spots and warns you of detected drivers in your blind zones to further help you merge safely.
Next time you encounter rush hour traffic, activate Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), where you let your Honda vehicle take command of the acceleration—you just set the speed and distance from other cars ahead, and your ride handles the rest while you steer. Not sure what the speed limit is? Not to worry, as Traffic Sign Recognition informs you of all important detected signs on the road, including speed limits, Do Not Enter zones, and much more to help you stay on top of your drives.
Most Honda vehicles from the current model year lineup feature the Honda Sensing suite of safety features. This includes all versions of the 2021 Civic—from the sleek and practical Hatchback to the ultra-sporty and track-geared Type-R, so that you can engage in spirited and athletic drives while helping stay safe in the process. You can also set off to new adventures in the rugged Honda Passport or enjoy sleek highway drives in the Honda CR-V with standard Honda Sensing safety. Even if you prefer remaining efficient, the 2021 Honda Clarity Fuel Cell also comes with Honda Sensing so that you can enjoy a massive range without compromising security.
