Has exploring the Honda safety features left you wondering, “What is Honda Sensing, and why is it so popular?” Found on popular models like the three-row Honda Pilot, well-rated Honda Odyssey, or the sporty Civic, Honda Sensing® is an advanced safety and driver assist suite created with your protection in mind. Take a closer look at the features and how they keep you and your loved ones safe below!

What’s Included in the Honda Sensing® Package?

With the Honda Sensing® system, you’ll have features that help you keep an eye on the Tigard roads. These features include:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS)—if a collision with a vehicle straight ahead seems likely, this system helps you brake.
  • Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM)—a small camera detects road markings and will alert you if you maneuver off the road.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)—helps you maintain a preset following distance.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)— will bring you back to the center of the lane if you begin to drift by automatically adjusting the steering.
  • Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR)—uses a camera to detect and alert you to traffic and speed limit signs.

Can You Turn Off Honda Sensing?

Yes, you can turn Honda Sensing® features off if you want. To turn off RDM, press the button under ECON. LKAS can be disabled by pushing the MAIN button on the steering wheel. Once the indicators in the instrument cluster are gone, the feature has been turned off.  You can also personalize your Honda Sensing® settings through the optional central touchscreen. Hit “Settings,” “Vehicle Settings,” and then “Drive Assist Setup.” This allows you to change RDM warnings, distance warnings for CMBS, and more.  If you find you need assistance in modifying or turning off your Honda Sensing® system, schedule a service appointment with one of our technicians!
