Safety for Everyone

Everyone deserves to feel safe on the road. Our global safety philosophy, "Safety For Everyone," embodies our commitment to protecting drivers, passengers and pedestrians alike.

Active Safety Technologies

Active Safety technologies are those that are always at work so you can focus on the drive, like the standard Multi-Angle Rearview Camera and active stability systems.

Passive Safety

Passive Safety systems are those you hope you’ll never need, but are critical to your safety in the event of a collision.

ACE™ Body Structure

This Honda-exclusive body design enhances occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal collisions by distributing crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle.

Front Seat Belts with Pretensioner and Load Limiter

When a strong frontal impact is detected, the front seat belts instantly retract, then give slightly if the load on the seat belt exceeds a certain amount, reducing the pressure it applies to the occupant’s chest.

Advanced Airbag Technology

Every Honda is equipped with advanced front airbags to help protect you in the event of a collision. Select models are also equipped with SmartVent® front side airbags, side curtain airbags with rollover sensor and front knee airbags to help provide further protection.

Our Collision-Free Future

Honda uses the latest driver-assistive technology to realize a vision of a future that is totally collision-free.
