Body and Safety

The Accord Coupe comes with ‘Honda Sensing™’, a new suite of driver-assistive technologies helps driver sense things which might be missed while driving. In some cases, they can even help in avoiding a collision or mitigate its severity. The Honda Sensing™ features consist of the below:

1. Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) that extends existing cruise control system to include millimeter-wave radar and camera monitors the distance between your vehicle and vehicle ahead. It helps the driver maintain a constant following distance eliminating manual acceleration/deceleration.

2. Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) that engineered to gently correct steering when driver begins to leave detected lane without signaling. It helps in reducing driver fatigue.

3. Collision Mitigation Braking SystemTM (CMBSTM), a Honda safety
feature designed to help reduce likelihood of a potential collision by alerting the driver. It can also take steps to help reduce severity of an impact by automatically applying brake pressure if the system determines a collision to be unavoidable.

4. Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) System, a system specifically designed to alert driver with the help of signals and a rapidly vibrating steering wheel that the car is drifting too close to the side of the driveway without any turn signal activated.

Also featured in the 3.5L V6 grades is the Honda Lanewatch™ feature which uses a camera located below the passenger  side window to display cars up  to two lanes.

The other Honda active-safety features such as Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) with Traction Control Systems (TCS), AntiLock Brake Systems (ABS), Electronic Brake Distributor (EBD) and Hill Start Assist (HAS) besides Honda’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure technology to enhance occupant protection and crash compatibility.

The Accord Coupe also has received the highest available crash safety ratings and a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from NHTSA and a similar rating of TOP SAFETY PICK+ from the IIHS (when equipped with CMBSTM) in the United States of America.
