Honda Sensing® has “now been fitted to 1 million vehicles,” according to a recent CNET technology review. So, what is Honda Sensing®? It is a suite of innovative safety systems now offered on new Honda models, including the Honda Accord and Honda Civic. Find out how Honda Sensing® can add peace of mind to your Glastonbury-area commute in this guide from Liberty Honda.

What’s Included in the Honda Sensing® Package?

The advanced technology of the Honda Sensing® suite provides active safety and driver assistance systems that can help prevent collisions and enhance awareness on the roads in and around New Britain. Honda Sensing® includes:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS): Automatically applies the brakes if a possible collision is detected with the vehicle directly in front of you.
  • Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM): Features a camera mounted near the rearview mirror to detect road markings and alert you if the vehicle begins to leave the road.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC): Automatically maintains a safe following distance between your Honda and the vehicle ahead of you.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS): Detects when your vehicle is drifting out of its lane and automatically adjusts steering to correct the situation.
  • Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR): Recognizes and remembers road signs, such as the speed limit, and relays the information to the driver.

Can You Turn Off Honda Sensing®?

It is certainly possible to turn off Honda Sensing® features. For example, if you want to turn off Road Departure Mitigation, you can press a button under ECON. To deactivate Lane Keeping Assist, just push the MAIN button on the steering wheel until the indicators in the instrument cluster are gone.

The Honda Sensing® settings can also be configured to your personal preferences via the optional central touchscreen. Tap “Settings,” followed by “Vehicle Settings,” and then “Drive Assist Setup.” This will allow you to customize system alerts and more.

If you find that you need help configuring or deactivating Honda Sensing®, schedule a service appointment at Liberty Honda. Our certified service technicians can walk you through it.
