1 Million Honda Sensing Vehicles Keep Our Roads Safer! Recently, Honda hit a major milestone! The brand now has 1 million Honda Sensing equipped vehicles in the U.S. By 2022, Honda plans to offer the Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety and drive-assistive technologies as standard across the entire lineup. The effective technologies were found to significantly reduce incollision claim severity, claim rates for damage to other vehicles or other property, and claim rates for injuries to people in other vehicles or others on the road according to studies by the IIHS in partnership with HDLI.
“The data are clear. The role of Honda Sensing is reducing crash risk,” said Matt Moore, senior vice president of HLDI. “We commend Honda for rapidly expanding the application of this safety technology throughout its lineup.”
The Honda Sensing application rate has more than doubled from 2016 to 2017 to more than 50,000. Currently the suit comes standard on the 2018 Accord and 2018 Accord Hybrid, but is available on the 2018 Honda Fit, Civic Sedan, Coupe and Hatchback, CR-V and Pilot sport-utility vehicles, Odyssey minivan and Ridgeline pickup. The full suit includes:
- Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS™) – can apply brake pressure when an unavoidable collision is determined
- Forward Collision Warning (FCW) – can detect the presence of vehicles in front, activating audio and visual alerts to warn the driver if they are at risk of collision
- Lane Keeping Assist (LKAS) – can help bring the vehicle back to the center of a detected lane when unindicated lane drift is determined
- Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) – can adjust steering and braking if you cross detected lanes without signaling
- Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) – can maintain a set following interval behind detected vehicles as well as maintain a set speed
“Honda dreams of a collision-free mobile society and the Honda Sensing technology has a crucial role to play in advancing us toward that goal,” said Henio Arcangeli, Jr., senior vice president of the American Honda Automobile Division & general manager of the Honda brand. “With the rapidly growing population of Honda vehicles applying these technologies, we hope to significantly reduce collisions involving Honda vehicles within the next three to four years.”
