Driving a Honda Accord

State-of-the-Art Safety Technologies

On top of a responsive and easy-to-use infotainment system, the 2020 Honda Accord is equipped with standard Honda Sensing®. Honda Sensing® is a safety package that includes the following driver-assistive safety technologies:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)
  • Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM)
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow
  • Traffic Sign Recognition System (TSR)

These smart features utilize cameras and sensors to monitor the road around you. If at any time your vehicle determines you’re on course for a collision, it can act autonomously to prevent it.

The standard safety suite in the 2020 Ford Fusion does come with its share of standard driver-assistive features. This doesn’t include all the same standard systems, though, like TSR.

The 2020 Honda Accord also offers the available Head-Up Display (HUD). This will show you alerts from TSR and other safety systems, along with your speed, directions, and more right in your line of sight. Unfortunately, the Ford Fusion doesn’t offer the extra convenience and safety of this type of display.
