Honda announced that US sales of vehicles fitted with Honda Sensing has reached the one million mark. By 2022, Honda Sensing will be incorporated across the entire lineup.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety IIHS, an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to reducing deaths, injuries and property damage from motor vehicle crashes, issued a report on the Honda Sensing’s effectiveness which claims that there have been significant reductions in vehicle damage claims and traffic injuries to people.Looking into the benefits of Honda Sensing, particularly its Forward Collision Warning and Collision Mitigation Braking features, the report concluded that even if a crash is not avoided, it is likely that the vehicle at least slowed down sufficiently before the crash due to the systems, noting the likelihood of injury is reduced when speed is reduced.

“The data are clear. The role of Honda Sensing is reducing crash risk,” said Senior Vice President of Highway Lost Data Institure (HLDI), Matt Moore. “We commend Honda for rapidly expanding the application of this safety technology throughout its lineup.”The full-suite of Honda Sensing advanced safety and driver-assistance technologies include Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Lane Keeping Assist (LKAS), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) and Low Speed Follow (LSF).

Currently, in our local market, Honda Malaysia has offered the Honda Sensing system for the Honda CR-V, Accord and the recently rejuvenated Honda Odyssey.
