The 2020 Honda Accord is a balancing act of roominess, comfort, fuel efficiency, engine power, and safety, but that doesn’t mean Honda sacrificed anything on the safety department to make the Accord of the new decade. The way Honda went about setting up the 2020 model year of the Accord was to make its safety technology suite standard on all trim levels. That’s right, Honda Sensing® is standard on every version of the 2020 Honda Accord.
What is Honda Sensing®?
Honda Sensing® brings together more automatic smart safety technology than you can count on one hand for a comprehensive safety system that helps careful and attentive drivers stay even more secure on the road. The following is a list of some of those features.
Collision Mitigation Braking System™
This is an increasingly common feature on modern cars that automatically applies brake pressure when the car predicts a collision is imminent. This technology extends to pedestrians and other vehicles but cannot replace a responsible driver.
Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow
Normal cruise control gets smart by working with sensors to slow down and just follow cars ahead of you that go slower than your selected cruise speed.
Traffic Sign Recognition
A small camera in your Accord can find and read street signs like speed limit markers and keep you updated with the current speed limit just in case you pass one without noticing it.
Lane Keeping Assist System
This technology allows your Accord to sense the boundaries of the lane you are currently in and can adjust steering to keep you headed toward your destination if you start to drift out of your lane.
Road Departure Mitigation System
In much the same way that Lane Keeping Assist helps keep you in your lane, the Road Departure Mitigation System scans for the line that signals the edge of the road and can automatically adjust your course to stay on the road if the car starts to drift unintentionally over the line.
