Honda Safety Features in Vaughan, ON
Honda has consistently been committed to safety. Dedicated to protecting drivers, passengers, pedestrians, and other vehicles on the road, Honda has worked extensively to provide collision-free roads using Honda technology. Honda continues to innovate and develop suites of automotive features that assist and protect you. At Maple Honda in Vaughan, Ontario, our new and used vehicles have some of the latest safety features equipped with Passive Safety and Active Safety features.
Passive Safety features are critical to your safety in the event of a collision. Passive Safety starts with the foundation of the vehicle: the chassis. Honda vehicles' body structures are built with Advanced Compatibility Engineering to absorb and distribute energy for a softer landing and to reduce the severity of frontal impacts. With standard advanced airbag technology, Honda vehicles are always engaged to protect you. Smarter seatbelts are equipped with pretensions and load limiters that are designed to retract upon impact and loosen slightly to reduce pressure.
Honda Safety Features
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
Honda’s Adaptive Cruise Control offers the usual cruise control benefits on long highway jaunts, but most importantly, it makes your ride much more enjoyable if ever you’re braving light traffic. Whether you’re on an open highway or driving on a more crowded thoroughfare, this technology allows you to enter your preferred speed and distance from vehicles ahead to enjoy a stress-free ride.
Forward Collision Warning (FCW)
Potential distractions abound when you’re on the road, and luckily, Honda’s Forward Collision Warning system can help. This safety feature detects vehicles directly in front of you and will send visual and audible alerts so you can apply the brakes in time and avoid a frontal collision.
Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
Thanks to its forward-facing camera, your new Honda’s Lane Keeping Assist System does its part to keep you in an ideal lane position. If you’ve activated this system and begin drifting out of your lane, the feature will send feedback through your steering wheel to help guide you back to where you should be.
Multi-Angle Rearview Camera
Parking and reversing in low-visibility situations are no longer an issue thanks to Honda’s Multi-Angle Rearview Camera. Whether you’re trying to nestle your car into a tight space or backing out of a crowded parking lot, this camera will give you a thorough view of what’s behind you to help you avoid a rear collision.
Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM)
This Honda safety function is designed to detect lane markings and notify you if you’re about to drift off-road or out of a lane marked by solid lines. If visual and audible alerts don’t suffice, the Road Departure Mitigation System will intervene by applying torque and steering feedback, and even apply the brakes to keep you from leaving the road completely.
Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS)
The Collision Mitigation Braking System relies on both radar and camera technology to help you avoid or minimize the severity of a frontal collision. This function determines your distance from approaching objects and vehicles ahead, and will alert you both visually and audibly before applying the brakes.
Active Stability Systems
True to their name, Honda’s Active Stability Systems help you stay at the reins of your ride with Brake Assist, Electronic Brake Distribution, and an Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS). This lineup also includes Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control, which does its part to give you an adaptable and reliable ride under various driving conditions.
Active Safety technologies are those that are always at work so you can focus on the drive. Honda is continuously improving and innovating with safety in mind. Honda Sensing is Honda's exclusive intelligent suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies designed to alert you to things you might miss while driving and help prevent or reduce the severity of collisions. All new Honda vehicles come with Honda Sensing technologies that include Brake Assist and Active Stability Systems among countless other features. Active Stability Systems include Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control, Anti-Lock Braking System, and Electronic Brake Distribution.
