Honda creates its safety features so that not only do they work to protect the Honda driver and its passengers, but also to protect those riding in other vehicles on the road. The ACE body structure, a Honda-exclusive design, was made under these same standards.
However, the ACE body structure is hopefully one Honda feature you’ll never have to use. This is a “passive safety” feature, meaning it’s there should the unthinkable happen. It’s a body design made up of multiple front frame structures which will absorb and deflect the force of a collision, should something happen. At the same time, the ACE body structure works to reduce the force on the other car as well as to disperse the energy, making the collision less damaging than it otherwise would be.
Honda’s Rearview Camera is useful for navigating tight spaces with poor visibility. As soon as the driver puts the car in reverse, a rear-mounted camera sends a real time image to a display inside each Honda cabin. The image also shows useful parking guidelines to help you as you back into tight spots. With the Honda Rearview Camera you can switch between three angle options: normal, top-town or wide. The Rearview Camera is perfect for backing out of a space in a busy grocery store or even helping you gauge distance while you parallel park.
Honda has two of the most advanced crash safety research and testing facilities, one in Ohio and one in Japan. It’s at these facilities that Honda works on its “passive safety” features, like the ACE body structure and also the Honda airbags. Every Honda comes with advanced front airbags that are ready to respond and protect should you need them. Some Honda models even have front side airbags and side curtain airbags.
