Honda Safety Features

  • Driving a Colorado Mountain Pass in a AWD HondaAdvanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) — This exclusive Honda body design gives greater protection in frontal collisions.  The reinforced structure more evenly distributes the crash impact throughout the front of the vehicle to minimize injury to passengers.
  • Anti-Lock Braking System — ABS keeps the brakes from locking up, which is especially useful for driving safely in the rain, snow, or any other wet weather conditions.
  • Daytime Running Lights (DRL) — Daytime running lights make your Honda more visible to other drivers on the road, which can help avoid accidents.
  • Dual-Stage, Multiple-Threshold Front Airbags (SRS) — These differ from ordinary air bags in that they can actually detect the severity of the impact and inflate accordingly.
  • Unit-Body Construction — A high percentage of high-tensile steel helps the body of the vehicle to better absorb impact forces from the front, sides, and rear, as well as reinforcing the roof for strength in the event of a rollover.
  • Front 3-Point Seat Belts — with Automatic Tensioning System
  • Front Side Airbags with Passenger-Side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS) — This feature detects the height and weight of the passenger so it can disengage if it detects a small child, thus preventing injury.
  • Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) — These built-in attachments work with compatible car seats so you never have to worry about your children’s safety.
  • Side Curtain Airbags with Rollover Sensor — Sensors cause these airbags to activate in the event of a rollover, offering better protection from the side.
  • Side-Impact Door Beams — These enhance structural strength in the event of a collision.
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) — Tire pressure is essential for vehicle handling and traction while driving.  This feature alerts the driver when the tire pressure is low.
  • Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control — This helps sense oversteer and understeer conditions, then brakes individual wheels and/or reduces throttle input to help restore your intended path of travel.
