Playing it safe

We believe a collision-free society is closer than it appears.

Safer roads

We want Safety for Everyone, no matter the size or price of your vehicle. See how we’re helping Canadians stay safe, while enjoying the freedom of mobility.

Nearly Real Testing

Avoiding collisions.

Honda opened the world’s first indoor, vehicle-to-vehicle, multi-directional crash-test facility in 2000 to learn about real-world crash configurations.

Gold Standard

Safety on two wheels.

We added airbags to the Gold Wing motorcycle in 2006 – an industry first.

Top Marks

Our efforts get noticed.

Honda vehicles are frequently recognized as Top Safety Picks by the U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Our vision zero

At Honda, we believe in Safety for Everyone – not just for drivers and motorcyclists, but also passengers, pedestrians and anyone else who shares the road. See what we’re doing to create a safer world.

Safer streets.

On guard

Active Safety features help prevent or reduce the severity of collisions. With driver-assistive Honda Sensing™ and AcuraWatch™ technologies, we’re working toward a collision-free world.

Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)

The LKAS* is engineered to gently correct your steering if you begin to leave a detected lane without signaling, applying torque progressively to the steering to help guide you back to the centre of the lane.

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow

The ACC system* with Low-Speed Follow is designed to keep a set speed and set following interval behind the vehicle detected directly ahead of yours, including the ability to start and stop the vehicle with the flow of traffic.

Lane Departure Warning (LDW) system

The LDW system* is designed to monitor vehicle lane position and alert you if your vehicle drifts into a newly detected lane when you haven’t signaled.

Collision Mitigation Braking SystemTM

To help reduce the likelihood or severity of a frontal impact, the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS®)* is engineered to apply light brake pressure if you don’t respond to FCW system alerts. If it still senses an imminent collision, CMBS® is designed to brake firmly.

Blind Spot Information (BSI) system

The Blind Spot Information (BSI) System*uses radar sensors that are engineered to illuminate indicator lights to notify you of vehicles entering either blind spot during lane changes, and displays an alert on the Display Audio System* screen when a vehicle is detected crossing your path on either side as you are reversing.

Cross Traffic Monitor System

The Cross Traffic Monitor system* helps detect vehicles approaching from either side when the vehicle is in reverse.

A softer landing

We understand that some accidents are difficult to avoid. That’s why we include Passive Safety features in every Honda we build, to help minimize injury when the worst happens. See for yourself how they work.

Advanced Compatibility EngineeringTM

Recognizing some collisions still happen, we designed a body structure that is engineered to absorb and distribute energy to help reduce the severity of frontal impacts.

Advanced airbag technology

Front airbags come standard in every Honda, and side curtain and front knee airbags up the protection factor.

Smarter seat belts

Equipped with pretensions and load limiters, our front seat belts are designed to retract when strong frontal impact occurs and loosen slightly if the load is too great, helping reduce pressure on the occupant.
