Vehicle safety has evolved and improved over the years, since the first Model-T Fords of old. Nowadays, drivers can expect to find a host of safety and protective features built into any car from any brand, especially Honda. While many of these safety features follow federal auto safety guidelines, some Honda offers to provide extra protection. You will find many of these high-tech features come standard on new Honda models and many come available on used Honda cars. Let us take a look at some of these features you should look for in your next car, here at Brandfon Honda in Branford, CT.

Keeping You Safe from Accident and Injury

For many years now, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and statewide safety initiatives have mandated a variety of safety features to get included on all cars. As most of our used Honda models come from recent years, we can safely say that all our used Honda models are federally-compliant and include all the right features a car should have to its name. Each comes reinforced with Honda's own Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE®) steel body structure for maximum impact protection. Other standard safety features on all new and used Honda models include the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TMPS), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Hillstart Assist Control (HAC), and a rearview backup camera with gridlines.

Honda Sensing®

The Honda brand introduced the Honda Sensing® suite of driver-assist features to many of their cars around 2015. If you see a used Honda from this year or newer, make sure you check to see if it has Honda Sensing® features included. This suite uses special sensors to monitor your surroundings, keeping track of sudden lane changes, impending obstructions, and other hazards. These systems send you audiovisual alerts and take corrective actions on the fly, as needed, to prevent collisions. Many Honda models 2019 and newer come standard with the full suite of Honda Sensing features which includes:

  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)
  • Road Departure Mitigation (RDM)
  • Lane Departure Mitigation (LDM)
