Honda Accord Active Safety Features

Active safety features are responsible for preventing accidents from occurring. For example, the Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Dynamic Guidelines lets you see what’s behind your Honda Accord as you maneuver. That feature is standard across all Honda Accord trims, and it’s joined by:


  • Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control: Refines driving dynamics to keep you in control.
  • Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS): Prevents locking up when you hit the brakes hard.
  • Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD): Distributes braking energy intelligently between all four wheels.
  • Brake Assist: Senses an emergency stop situation and automatically applies added braking force.
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS): Lets you know when too much or too little air is affecting tire safety.
  • LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL): Provides low-level light that’s proven to help prevent accidents even in the full light of day.


Honda Accord Passive Safety Features

Passive safety features are designed to keep you from harm in the unlikely event of an accident occurring, and one of the most important is the Accord’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) Body Structure. Sitting at the heart of each vehicle, the ACE body structure is designed to crumple intelligently upon impact to direct collision energy away from the passenger compartment.


You’ll also find Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren (LATCH) to safely secure child seats, plus the following further passive safety features:

  • Advanced Front Airbags
  • SmartVent® Front Side Airbags
  • Side Curtain Airbags with Rollover Sensor
  • Driver’s and Front Passenger’s Knee Airbags
  • 3-Point Seat Belts at all Seating Positions
  • Front 3-Point Seat Belts with Automatic Tensioning System
  • Driver’s and Front Passenger’s Seat-Belt Reminder
  • Child-Proof Rear Door Locks

Honda Accord Driver-Assist Technology

Available driver-assist features include:

  • Blind Spot Information System (BSI) with Cross Traffic Monitor: BSI lets you know when a vehicle enters your blind spot and warns you against unsafe lane changes. The Cross Traffic Monitor scans to left and right as you reverse.
  • Auto High-Beam Headlights: Turns high beams on when no other vehicles are detected ahead and then off when one is detected.
  • Head-Up Display (HUD): Keeps information in your line of sight to prevent you taking your eyes from the road.


The Honda Accord has always kept one step ahead by presenting American drivers with state-of-the-art technology, and the latest model even brings these sophisticated Honda Sensing® driver assistance features as standard:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™): Scans ahead to detect potential collisions. Visual and audible alerts will let you take corrective actions – if you don’t, the brakes can be applied to reduce the force of an unavoidable collision.
  • Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM): A windshield-mounted camera identifies road markings to tell when you’re about to leave the road. An MID warning message will alert you and the vehicle will be guided back.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow: Controls your speed to maintain a safe distance from the vehicle ahead. The handy Low-Speed Follow feature takes the edge off navigating stop-and-go traffic.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS): If you start drifting from your chosen lane without signaling, an alert will sound and corrective steering pressure will bring you back to center.
  • Traffic Sign Recognition System (TSR): Sees and remembers road signs, then reminds you of the current speed limit by putting it on your display.
