If you have been considering a new Honda car, truck, or SUV you may have wondered,“What is Honda Sensing®?” A package of advanced safety and driver-assist systems, Honda Sensing® “has been fitted to 1 million vehicles,” as noted in a recent CNET review. Learn more about how these safety technologies can enhance your Denver driving experience in this guide from Planet Honda.

The Honda Sensing® Package

The Honda Sensing® suite is designed to enhance driver awareness on Lakewood roads and can help to prevent potential collisions. All Honda Sensing®-equipped Honda models feature the following safety and driver-assist systems:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)—Maintains a preset following distance with the car in front of you.
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)—Automatically applies the brakes when it detects a possible collision with the vehicle directly in front of you.
  • Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM)—Monitors road markings and will alert you if you begin to leave the road.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)—Automatically adjusts steering to keep your vehicle within its lane.
  • Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR)—Detects and reads road signs, relaying the information to the driver.

Can You Turn Off Honda Sensing®?

One question that many Arvada drivers ask us is “Can you turn off Honda Sensing®?” The answer is yes, and you’ll find that it is very easy to do so. If you want to turn off LKS, for example, just push the MAIN button on the steering wheel until the indicators in the instrument cluster are gone

The Honda Sensing® settings can also be configured to your personal preference. All you have to do is tap “Settings,” “Vehicle Settings,” and then “Drive Assist Setup” on the optional central touchscreen. This will allow you to change distance warnings for CMBS™, RDM warnings, and more.

If you find that you need help modifying or turning off Honda Sensing®, schedule a service appointment at Planet Honda. Our certified technicians will be happy to assist you.
