What’s Included in the Honda Sensing Package?

Honda Sensing is comprised of a variety of safety technologies that will have your back on Southbury roads:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS): Brakes your car for you in the event of an oncoming straight-on vehicle collision
  • Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM): Uses a camera in order to detect road markings and warns you if you leave the road
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC): Helps you maintain an ideal following distance
  • Lane Keep Assist System (LKAS): Adjusts steering for you in order to keep you from driting out of your lane
  • Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR): Utilizes a camera to detect and alert you of oncoming speed limit signs

Can You Turn Off Honda Sensing?

Is Honda Sensing worth it if you don’t use these features all the time? The answer is yes, because you can easily turn them off! For example, if you don’t want to use RDM, you can simply press a button under ECON. You can turn LKS off by pushing the MAIN button on your steering wheel and holding until the indicators visible in the instrument cluster disappear.

Additionally, you can configure Honda Sensing settings through the optional central touchscreen. First hit “Settings,” then “Vehicle Settings,” and lastly “Drive Assist Setup.” You can now change RDM distances, distance warnings from CMBS, etc.
