As the weather gets nicer and we start feeling the itch for adventure once more, we at Honda of Grays Harbor want our Hoquiam, WA area Honda customers and beyond to arrive at their destinations and enjoy their journeys safely. And we’re glad to say, safety features have never been better than they are now, and modern safety features don’t get as advanced as what you’ll find in the Honda Sensing® suite of driver assistance features.

The age of intelligent machines and smart devices has brought to auto safety a slew of features that feel truly futuristic compared to seat belts and emergency brakes. Things like Honda’s Collision Mitigation Braking System™(CMBS) and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) offer machine-augmented driving that is truly groundbreaking. CMBS utilizes the onboard cameras and sensors around a vehicle like the new 2019 Honda Accord, which scans the road thousands of times a second and notices when a collision is inevitable and applies the brakes in order to avert it. ACC works on much the same principle, but it uses the cameras and sensors to feel the pace of traffic to keep you at a speed that is consistent with the flow of traffic.

Other features of Honda Sensing® that you should be aware of include Honda LaneWatch™, which extends the view of your side mirrors when you activate your right turn indicator. Flip the blinker and watch as your touchscreen displays live video at your vehicle’s right side, which reveals almost four times as much of the road than the regular passenger-side mirror.

In every way, Honda cars have never been safer, and in a lot of ways, modern cars aren’t as safe as Honda is now. Head into our Aberdeen, WA Honda dealer today to get the best deals on new or certified pre-owned Honda cars equipped with Honda Sensing® – once you use it, you’re going to wonder what you did without it. See you soon!
