Honda Sensing® Has Your Back


Advanced engineering is a hallmark of the Honda brand. From the way the wind flows over the hood of the vehicle, to the placement of the controls inside the cabin, everything has been crafted with care and attention to detail, all in pursuit of an optimal driving experience. That same dedication has been applied to Honda Sensing®, the Honda brand’s exclusive suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies.

The features that make up the Honda Sensing suite are one part extra set of eyes and one part co-pilot. Take Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC): not only does it help you maintain the speed you’ve selected, it also maintains a set distance from the car in front of you, slowing down and accelerating back up to the desired speed as traffic allows. The Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM) is another impressive feature. If it sees that you’ve gone over the edge of a detected lane without signaling, it can adjust steering and braking to keep you on course. The brakes can also be employed by the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) when an unavoidable collision is detected.

If you’ve driven a car with a rearview camera that displays the view behind you as you reverse, you know how jarring it can be to go back to a car without it. The same thing tends to happen here at Heritage Honda Parkville when drivers test drive a car with Honda LaneWatch™. With this feature, whenever you turn on your right turn signal, a camera on the passenger-side mirror turns on and sends live video to your Display Audio Touch-Screen. The view is eye-opening, revealing nearly four times more than the passenger-side mirror alone.

There are more great safety features that we’d love to show you here at our dealership near Towson, MD. And we haven’t even talked about all of the amazing passive safety features built right into every Honda vehicle. Come in today to see Honda engineering in action in great vehicles like the 2018 Honda Civic and 2018 Honda CR-V.
