Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure

The Insight’s commitment to safety begins with Honda’s innovative Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure. It utilizes a network of frame structures to absorb crash energy and distribute it away from the occupants. It also minimizes the amount of force that is transferred to the other vehicle involved, keeping everyone on the road safer.

Passive Safety Features

The Insight’s list of passive safety features include airbags, seatbelts, and locks. These features might go on unnoticed at first, but they’re there for you when you need them most.

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

Active Safety Features

The Insight includes several active safety features that ensure it performs at its best, despite inclement weather or less-than-ideal weather conditions. These features help bring the Insight to a complete stop more quickly in an emergency situation and provide more stability and traction control on turns or on loose road surfaces. It also prevents the brakes from locking up, which can cause dangerous skidding.

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera

Every model of the Insight comes equipped with a multi-angle rearview camera that allows drivers to check their surroundings before reversing. And with guidelines as a standard feature and dynamic guidelines as an upgrade on the upper trim levels, drivers are able to maneuver in and out of tight spaces with ease. The camera features three distinct views for different situations.

  • Normal – Check for a clear path behind the Insight before backing out.
  • Wide – When reversing onto a street, the wide angle allows drivers to see approaching cars, pedestrians, or cyclists.
  • Top-Down – The top-down angle is especially helpful when parallel parking.

The Honda Sensing suite of driver-assistive technology features helps drivers stay safe with systems that warn, prevent, and mitigate incidents on the road.

  • Forward Collision Warning
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System
  • Road Departure Mitigation System
  • Lane Keeping Assist System
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow
  • Traffic Sign Recognition System

Honda LaneWatch

Honda LaneWatch comes standard on the Touring model and utilizes a small camera mounted on the passenger’s side mirror to display a live video feed of activity in the driver’s blind spot when a right lane change is signaled. The video displays on the eight-inch touchscreen inside the cabin and allows drivers to see up to four times more than using mirrors alone.
