From a safety perspective, the most important thing you can do every time you get into a vehicle is buckle up. All front and rear seating positions in Honda vehicles have 3-point seat belts that ride across the lap and chest to help restrain occupants during sudden stops or impact. The front seats feature an automatic tensioning system. But seatbelts aren't the only important safety feature you'll find in your new Honda.

* Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure

Honda's exclusive body design enhances occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal collisions by utilizing a network of connected structural elements that distribute crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle. This enhanced frontal crash energy management helps to reduce the forces transferred to the passenger compartment and can help to more evenly disperse the forces transferred to other vehicles in a crash.

* Anti-Lock Braking System with Electronic Brake Distribution

The anti-lock braking system uses a special modulator to pulse the brakes to help prevent wheel lockup while the Electronic Brake Distribution system balances the braking forces at each wheel according to how the car is dynamically loaded.

* Daytime Running Lights

* Tire Pressure Monitoring System

This system monitors the pressure in all four tires and alerts the driver when pressure in any tire becomes significantly low.

 

* Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control

VSA can brake individual wheels and/or reduce engine power in the event of oversteer or understeer to help regain the driver's intended path. The system also features a traction control function to help prevent wheel spin during acceleration.

 

* Front and side airbags

All Honda vehicles come standard with front and side airbags that will protect passengers in the event of a crash. For more information, contact Luther Brookdale Honda.
