Honda Accord Safety Features
Just how safe is the 2017 Honda Accord? Well, let’s turn to the experts for the answer to that question.
First, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration presented it with their prestigious 5-Star Overall Safety Rating.1 And, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named it a Top Safety Pick+.2
Our team at Braman Honda of Palm Beach wrote this review of the Honda Accord’s various safety systems for our customers in Wellington, Greenacres, and Palm Beach. If you have any additional questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to us today. We’d love to tell you more about Accord safety!
2017 Honda Accord: Honda Sensing™
Honda Sensing™ is a suite of six advanced safety technologies that might just save the lives of you and your passengers, should you get into an accident. With Road Departure Mitigation, Forward Collision Warning, Collision Mitigation Braking System™, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist System, and Adaptive Cruise Control, you can rest assured that your family and friends are as safe as possible.
Honda Sensing™ Safety Features
Road Departure Mitigation: It utilizes a small windshield-mounted camera to detect safety markers, such as road markers. If you start to drift too far off your course, it’ll issue an alert before it’s too late.
Forward Collision Warning: It’ll warn you if it senses an impending frontal collision—literally a life saver!
Collision Mitigation Braking System™: However, if you still don’t react after the warning mentioned above, then the Accord can automatically slow down, or even stop. That way, the damage is minimal.
Lane Departure Warning: This technology is just like the Road Departure Mitigation system, but it warns you if you’re even drifting out of your lane (without first engaging your turn signal, of course).
Lane Keeping Assist System: And, if you don’t react to that warning, then this feature can intelligently apply steering torque so that you stay in your lane. It’s better than if the passenger jerks the wheel!
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC): Last, but certainly not least, there’s Adaptive Cruise Control. With standard cruise control, your sedan will maintain a preset speed. But, with ACC, it’ll also maintain a present distance.
Additional Honda Safety Features
There’s more to the Accord’s arsenal of safety features than just Honda Sensing™, believe it or not. With a cool Multi-Angle Rearview Camera, a helpful Tire Pressure Monitoring System, and an Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ body structure, this is one of the safest sedans on the entire market, period.
