The Highway Loss Data Institute (HLDI) issued a study this spring that indicates that Honda Sensing has resulted in an 11% reduction on claim rates for damage to other vehicles or property and a 28% reduction in claim rates for injuries to people in other vehicles or others on the road. Honda will have standard Honda Sensing across the entire lineup by the 2022 model year. “The data is 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.”
Honda Sensing is standard equipment today on the 2018 Clarity Plug-in Hybrid, 2018 Accord, 2018 Accord Hybrid, and the just launched 2019 Insight Hybrid Sedan. The technology is available today on the 2019 Honda Fit, 2018 Civic Sedan, Coupe and Hatchback, 2018 CR-V, 2019 HR-V and 2018/2019 Pilot sport-utility vehicles, 2018/2019 Odyssey minivan and 2018/2019 Ridgeline pickup.
The list of Honda Sensing Features:
- 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
About Honda Safety
Honda has a long history of leadership in the development and application of advanced technologies designed to enhance the safety of all road users, including automobile occupants, motorcycle riders and pedestrians. The company operates two of the world’s most sophisticated crash test facilities, in Ohio and Japan, and is responsible for numerous pioneering efforts in the areas of crashworthiness, airbag technology, collision compatibility and pedestrian safety. Toward Honda’s goal of a zero-collision society, the company is broadly applying Honda Sensing® advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies, now on more than one million vehicles on U.S. roads today. These technologies can significantly reduce the likelihood or severity of a collision and also serve as a bridge to highly automated vehicles of the future. Honda is targeting 2020 for the deployment of vehicles with highly automated highway driving capability and 2025 for the technological achievement of SAE Level 4 automated vehicles for personal use.
