Honda Sensing Provides High Levels of Safety for Santa Monica

 

Trust and the Honda brand go together, as plenty have relied on the vehicle for standout driving for decades. One reason new Honda models are trustworthy is Honda Sensing®, the onboard safety suite of technology that aims to offer confidence and protection.

Honda Sensing® is five different technologies that all work together to give you a comprehensive, safe drive through Santa Monica and Los Angeles County. They include:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ which applies the brakes when it senses an unavoidable collision is imminent to slow the vehicle and lessen impact
  • Road Departure Mitigation System will adjust the steering and braking if you cross detected lanes such as the shoulder of the road without signaling
  • Adaptive Cruise Control allows you to set a speed and following distance between drivers which will automatically slow down and gain desired speed when cleared in highway settings, making it a standout on the 10 or the 405
  • Lane Keeping Assist System helps you stay in your lane and centered while driving so you don't veer off into another one
  • Traffic Sign Recognition will notify drivers of posted speeds limits as well as other cautions using a small camera

Drivers also have the power to choose optional features such as Honda LaneWatch™, blind spot information system and cross traffic monitor outside of the Honda Sensing® suite. You can learn all about the safety features onboard models like the Civic, Accord or Pilot here at Honda of Santa Monica, just 10 minutes from downtown LA where you can beat the traffic and come by and see us for a quality dealership experience.
