The roadways are full of hazards and obstacles that can come up at any time. As hard as you try, you can miss something and end up in an accident. Fortunately, you can protect your car and yourself with the Honda Sensing Suite of intelligent driver-assistive and safety features. Standard or available on most models, the Sensing Suite will give you peace of mind and help you arrive at your destination safely. Let’s take a closer look at some of Honda’s top autonomous features.
Adaptive Cruise Control
Setting the cruise control is a good way to increase gas mileage. However, it’s a challenge when you have to keep turning it on and off to slow down and speed back up. The Honda Sensing Suite comes with Adaptive Cruise Control. This feature monitors your surroundings and slows down, and speeds up as needed. Once set, you don’t have to worry about the gas pedal since Honda will take care of it for you.
Lane Keeping Assist System
No matter how careful you are, drifting into another lane is always possible. Fortunately, the Lane Keeping Assist System will step in when that happens. It detects the lane you’re in and gently guides you back to the center if you drift over the line.
Traffic Sign Recognition
Do you have a lead foot from time to time? It’s not that you mean to speed, but sometimes, you miss the posted traffic sign. With Traffic Sign Recognition, you’ll always be aware of the posted speed limits. Think of all the money you can save on speeding tickets.
Honda Lane Watch and Blind Spot Information System
Changing lanes in traffic can be stressful. You worry that a car is hiding in your blind spot, and you’ll sideswipe it. Honda LaneWatch and the Blind Spot Information System are available on select 2018 and 2019 models. LaneWatch shows a live video that’s four times larger than the average side mirror when you signal to turn right, so you can make sure it’s safe before turning or changing lanes. Then, the Blind Spot Information System checks for vehicles when you signal. If any cars are in your blind spot, it will beep and display an indicator light, letting you know to stay in your lane.

Cross Traffic Monitor
Backing up can also be stressful. If you don’t notice a car approaching from the side, you can end up hitting it. The Cross Traffic Monitor is available on select 2018 and 2019 models. This feature alerts you if a vehicle is approaching while you’re backing up. That means you can reverse with confidence when driving a Honda.
