Safety for Everyone


Realizing a Collision-free Society

Honda’s global safety concept, “Safety for Everyone” aims to realize a collision-free society in which not only automobile occupants and motorcycle riders, but everyone, can share the roads safely.

Based on the analysis of past road accidents, Honda developed “Honda SENSING”, a driver-assist system. Analysis shows that many fatal road accidents are caused by cars straying from their lanes, including those which involve pedestrians. Honda SENSING operates to detect and take action to avoid situations such as one-car accidents, collisions, pedestrian injuries, and missed road signs.

Honda SENSING provides safety, while keeping driving fun.


Honda SENSING for the All-New Honda CR-V

The All-New CR-V is equipped with a new Honda SENSING front sensor camera and radar system. The new camera has a wider field of view from before from 50 degrees to 90 degrees. Meanwhile, the radar mounted behind the Honda logo on the grille now has a field of view of 120 degrees, up by 70 degrees from the previous generation. This helps in better detection of cars, motorcycles, bicycles and pedestrians.


Honda SENSING Features

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low Speed Follow (LSF)*

ACC with LSF

The Adaptive Cruise Control or ACC is perfect for long drives as it lessens your fatigue by maintaining the distance based on the car in front of you, braking and accelerating as needed; while the Low Speed Follow or LSF helps make it easier to drive during stop-and-go traffic.

*LSF is available on Honda Civic, HR-V, CR-V and Type R models equipped with Honda SENSING.
