Lane Departure Warning and Mitigation

Lane departure warning is a feature that uses sensors to make sure that your vehicle is centered in its lane in the Staten Island area. If the vehicle veers from the center, an audible and visual sensor is cued. Lane keep assist is able to automatically keep the vehicle centered in normal driving conditions using targeted braking power.

Forward Collision Warning and Mitigation

If a vehicle is in danger of a forward collision, the forward collision warning system engages to warn the driver to apply the brakes in anticipation of the potential collision. If the driver fails to act in time, automatic braking engages to help avoid or mitigate the impact of a collision.

Adaptive Cruise Control

When engaged, adaptive cruise control is able to automatically maintain a safe distance between the front of your vehicle and the back of the vehicle in front of you through automatically braking and accelerating.

Road Departure Mitigation

This system is able to automatically adjust your steering and braking in order to help prevent your vehicle from veering off the road.

Honda LaneWatchTM

Any time you signal right on busy streets, a camera on the passenger-side mirror will turn on and show video on your infotainment system. Honda’s proprietary LaneWatchTM will reveal nearly four times more than the average passenger-side mirror.
