What Is Honda Sensing?
Today’s world can feel busy and fast-paced, and sometimes you can find yourself scattered or distracted. While there’s certainly no replacement for your attention behind the wheel, Honda is hard at work employing advanced technology in its latest vehicles to help bolster your alertness and sense of awareness.
The result is the Honda Sensing suite, which is now available on more vehicles at our Honda dealership near St. Peters than ever before. So how does Honda Sensing help to keep you aware of what’s going on around you? By keeping an eye out for you from virtually every angle!
From helping you see better to calling your attention to potential obstacles, Honda Sensing uses advanced sensors to keep an eye on the road ahead. Auto High-Beam Headlights detect road conditions when driving at night to automatically switch between low and high beams for optimum visibility. Traffic Sign Recognition can even alert you to info like speed limits that you might miss while driving.
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) allows equipped vehicles to adapt to changing traffic speeds while using cruise control by using a set following interval for the vehicle ahead of you. As for potential accidents, the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ can apply the brakes automatically if a potential accident is detected.
Whether you’re losing your focus and starting to drift, or switching lanes while someone’s in your blind spot, Honda Sensing can call your attention to the problem so you can react accordingly. The Lane Keeping Assist System™ will notify you if you start to change lanes without signalling, while Honda LaneWatch™ can expand your field of vision while changing lanes using a mirror-mounted camera system. The Blind Spot Information System gives an audible alert if you start to change lanes while a vehicle is in your blind spot.
If you start to leave the roadway altogether, a common cause of accidents when drivers are distracted or tired, the Road Departure Mitigation System can automatically adjust your steering and brake pressure to help keep you out of trouble. The latest Honda vehicles at our St. Peters area dealership truly do keep your safety in mind.
While most drivers don’t spend much time in reverse, the Multi-Angle Rearview Camera and Cross Traffic Monitor can be invaluable when backing up. An incredibly helpful supplement to looking both ways before reversing, these paired systems can alert you of oncoming traffic approaching from the sides with audible and visual indicators.
