What is Honda Sensing, and How Does it Work?

Hitting the streets of San Diego should never be a risky proposition. When you are driving, you want to know your car is looking out for your safety. You understand, no matter how safe you are on the road, you can't be so certain about the other drivers. But not to worry. You are driving a new Honda from Penske Honda Chula Vista, so you are protected by Honda Sensing.

But what exactly does that mean as you cruise I-5 to National City? That means you have the most advanced safety measures in effect, working to keep you safe. The Honda Sensing suite is an intelligent and intuitive package of safety and driver-assist features that monitor your driving habits and those of the drivers around you. Technology is designed to reduce your reaction time while still avoiding an impending collision.

Honda Sensing is loaded full of standard features. Each element is geared to make you feel like you have an extra set of eyes looking out for you:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System: Detects potential front-end collision and alerts the driver through vibrations in the steering wheel and audible warnings.
  • Road Departure Mitigation System: Monitors your driving and adjusts your steering and braking if you being to veer lanes without indicating.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System: Corrects steering when your Honda approaches marked lanes to keep you centered.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control: Adjusts your pre-determined speed by determining how closely you are following other traffic
  • Traffic Sign Recognition: Can read and collect information from road signs and displays that information in your head-up display and dash.
