What is Honda Sensing®?

Blue Honda Civic

In a recent CNET review, it is noted that Honda Sensing® has “now been fitted to 1 million vehicles.” Yet there are still some Los Angeles-area drivers asking, “What exactly is Honda Sensing®?” Standard on select new vehicles, such as the 2019 Honda Accord and 2019 Honda Civic, Honda Sensing® is a safety suite that can add an extra level of peace-of-mind to your Downey commute. Learn more about these innovative safety and driver assist systems, then stop by Honda World Downey to see how they work in person.


What’s Included in the Honda Sensing® Package?

Honda Sensing® features advanced technologies to help you stay aware of your surroundings on Whittier roads:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)—Can automatically apply the brakes if a collision with the vehicle ahead of you seems likely.
  • Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM)—Will alert you if your vehicle begins to leave the road.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)—Helps to maintain a preset following distance on the highway.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)—Automatically adjusts steering to bring you back to the center of the lane if your car starts to drift.
  • Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR)—Detects and reads road signs and can display information on such things as the posted speed limit, etc.

Can You Turn Off Honda Sensing®?

Some Norwalk drivers ask, “Is it still worth having Honda Sensing® if I don’t want to use the features all the time?” Here at Honda World Downey, we think the benefits of the Honda Sensing® systems make it well worth having on your car, truck, or SUV. If there are occasions when you don’t want to take advantage of these features, it is easy to turn them off. The Road Departure Mitigation System, for instance, can be deactivated by pressing the button under “ECON.” Lane Keeping Assist can be turned off by pushing the “MAIN” button on the steering wheel until the indicators in the instrument cluster are gone.

With the central touchscreen, you can configure the Honda Sensing® settings to suit your preferences. Just tap “Settings,” “Vehicle Settings,” and then “Drive Assist Setup.” This allows you to change warnings, alerts, and more.
