Advanced safety performance prevents accidents before they can occur, predicts and prepares for impending accidents, and mitigates injury and vehicle damage should a accident occur.

 

    The Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) system—which includes the Antilock Brake System (ABS), Traction Control System (TCS), and sideslip control9—works in combination with the DBW electronic throttle control that optimizes engine torque to achieve more precise vehicle control.

 

    The Collision Mitigation Brake System (CMBS)9 uses millimeter-wave radar, assessing collision risk based on inter-vehicle distance and relative vehicle speeds. As a risk of collision is assessed, the system uses audio and visual warnings and light braking to alert the driver and prompt preventative action. As collision risk increases to the point where a collision unavoidable, the system activates the brakes more firmly to help reduce vehicle speed and mitigate damage and injuries.

 

    A side curtain airbag system10 for the first-to-third-row seats is available as a set option combined with the front-seat i-side airbag system.

 

    Honda’s Crash Compatibility Body enhances passenger protection while mitigating impact on the other vehicle.

 

    The vehicle is also designed to mitigate pedestrian injury in the event of a collision.

 

    The head shock protection interior designed to protect vehicle occupants form shocks to the head in the event of a collision.

 

    All models are equipped with front seats designed to reduce the impact of a rear collision on an occupant’s neck area.

 

    All models are equipped with ABS (Anti-lock Brake System) with EBD (Electronic Brake Distribution) and brake assist.
