If you’re more curious about the safety, we’ll get to that in just a minute. You’ll find the following standard and available features on the 2017 Accord (coupe and sedan):
Honda Sensing includes:
Adaptive Cruise Control: This safety feature watches the speeds of cars around you and adjusts your cruising speed to keep pace.
Forward Collision Warning: The radar systems that track the speed of surrounding vehicles for adapt=”ive cruise control can also indicate when you might collide with another car, leading this feature to issue you a collision warning.
Collision Mitigation Braking System: If the Accord notices that the car is still heading toward a collision, it can apply the brakes on its own, slowing or stopping the vehicle to mitigate any damage.
Road Departure Mitigation System: This advanced feature is able to track the signs and markers on the side of the road and alert the driver (and even correct the vehicle’s course) if it senses you’re leaving the road.
Lane Departure Warning: A front-mounted camera monitors lane markings and issues audio and visual warnings if it senses you drifting from the center of your lane.
Lane Keeping Assist System: This safety feature can actually keep your vehicle centered in the lane if it detects a drift and notices no response to the lane departure warning.
