Not every brand of vehicles is made the same. Now more than ever, safety is becoming an essential component when it comes to finding a new car. It’s not enough to have a few common features to feel safe when on the road; whether you're close to home in the Virginia Beach and Chesapeake, VA area or not. Luckily, modern Honda models stand above the rest.


Late model Honda vehicles like the 2019 Honda Civic provide drivers with more than most other brands when it comes to safety features and driver assistance aids. All these features are packed into the comprehensive Honda Sensing™ Suite.


So, what is the Honda Sensing Suite? According to Honda automakers, “Honda Sensing is our exclusive intelligent suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies designed to alert you to things you might miss while driving.”


The current Honda Sensing system comes standard with five features, while others are optional. So, we’re breaking down a few of our favorites. One standard feature we love is the Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) which applies brake pressure when a collision is unavoidable to help minimize impact. Long drives can be tough, which is why we’re grateful for the Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM) which helps to keep you in your lane by adjusting the steering and braking if you cross detected lanes without signaling. Also great for longer trips outside the Virginia Beach, VA area is the adaptive cruise control feature which automatically adjusts your speed to keep you at a reasonable distance from the car in front of you.


Several optional features make driving safer and easier like blind spot monitoring and Honda LaneWatch. However, we feel that the best way to experience these features is to test them out for yourself. That’s why we invite you to visit our Virginia Beach Honda dealership for a test drive today.
