What is Honda Sensing and What Does it Mean for Your Commute? Honda Barn Has the Answers

Shopping for a new vehicle can lead you to a lot of confusing terms and unfamiliar technologies. These days, vehicles come with a lot of modern-day features and amenities, and if it's been a while since the last time you shopped around, some of the names may be unfamiliar. Take the Honda Sensing suite of safety features that comes standard on many of the new models available at Honda Barn, for example.

When we say that our topnotch, brand-new Honda cars, trucks, SUVs, and minivans get the Honda Sensing suite standard, do you know what that means for your specific favorite model? Or does it lead you to more questions?

Wherever you are in your vehicle shopping journey, our expert team is here to help and ready to walk you through our entire collection of vehicles, explaining all aspects of the Honda Sensing suite as we go. Read on to learn more about each of the cutting-edge features that come as part of this suite and contact our team to get answers to all your questions.

What is Road Departure Warning and Mitigation?

Driving down I-95 past Hampton, NH and accidentally drift out of your lane? The Honda Sensing suite is ready to assist. If it senses that you haven't used a blinker but you're switching lanes or drifting, it will alert you and can adjust steering and braking to help you stay safely in the lane you were meant to be in.

What is Forward Collision Mitigation and Braking?

The unexpected can happen at any time. A car may pull out of a parking lot in Dover, NH and right into your path of travel. Traffic might suddenly back up in Brentwood, NH, leaving you little time to react and brake. With this groundbreaking feature by your side, you get a little extra protection on these little unexpected twists and turns. It applies the brakes when an unavoidable crash is detected, helping to minimize or avoid overall damage.

What is Adaptive Cruise Control?

With traditional cruise control, you can set your speed and forget it. But you have to be on the alert and make sure you don't get too close to the vehicles in front of you or cause an accident. But with adaptive cruise control, you can set your speed and let the car do the rest. Not only will it maintain the vehicle at the speed you want to go, it will also brake and maintain a safe distance to vehicles in front of it.

What is Traffic Sign Recognition?

Get a little help remembering the posted speed limit, thanks to this feature. It recognizes speed limit signs with the help of a small camera, and keeps you updated as you go along.

What is Lane Keeping Assistance?

Where the road departure mitigation lets you know when you drift, this feature will help you stay centered within the marked lane you're travelling in.
