About Honda Sensing™ in the 2017 Honda Accord
Honda Sensing™ is actually a suite of advanced safety systems designed to keep you and your passengers safer while on the road. Consisting of six different systems, each part of the Honda Sensing™ collection has a particular purpose that makes your drive both easier and safer.
Included in this package is Road Departure Mitigation, Forward Collision Warning, Collision Mitigation Braking System™, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist System, and Adaptive Cruise Control.
Honda Sensing™ Safety Features
- Road Departure Mitigation: This helpful safety system utilizes a small camera located just behind the windshield to detect and monitor safety markers on the road, such as lane dividers. If the system detects that the Honda Accord is about to leave the roadway, an alert notifies the driver to steer back into the lane.
- Forward Collision Warning: This system can detect frontal collision risks, and warns the driver to slow down.
- Collision Mitigation Braking System™: If there’s no response to the Forward Collision Warning, or if the system detects an otherwise unavoidable forward collision, the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ will automatically help to slow and stop the Honda Accord safely.
- Lane Departure Warning: Using similar technology to the Road Departure Mitigation system, Lane Departure Warning monitors lane markings to warn you if you begin to leave your lane without signaling.
- Lane Keeping Assist System: This system can help drivers stay in their lane and reduce fatigue by applying subtle steering adjustments to keep the Honda Accord in the center of the lane.
- Adaptive Cruise Control: With this, you the driver selects the cruising speed and the desired distance from the vehicle in front of yours. The system then automatically holds that distance, even reducing speed if traffic begins to slow.
Additional Honda Accord Safety Features
If the sophisticated Honda Sensing™ safety systems weren’t already enough, the 2017 Honda Accord offers even more safety features and technologies. A Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with normal, wide, and top-down views comes standard, as well as a Tire Pressure Monitoring System that notifies you when any of the sedan’s tires need air.
You’ll also get the Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ body structure, which uses a Honda-exclusive design to reduce occupant injury during a frontal collision. The body structure distributes crash forces more evenly around the front of the vehicle and away from the passenger compartment.
