Safety Features: Honda Odyssey
To Honda, the word “sensing” is a vital part of its new automotive vocabulary. It represents an incredible new suite of safety-related technology that is not only cool, but lifesaving. In the all-new Odyssey, Honda’s best selling minivan, the sensing suite starts out with a Road Departure Mitigation System. It helps you stay on the road, if it detects that you’re crossing a lane unintentionally, by gently applying the brakes and adjusting the steering wheel back to center. But that’s just the beginning. Thanks to the Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), the Odyssey will also both alert you of an impending collision with another vehicle or a pedestrian, as well as apply the brakes automatically on your behalf. Another lifesaving technology in the Odyssey’s sensing suite is Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow. With it, the vehicle will actually maintain a safe distance and even slow to a stop in perfect timing with the vehicle in front of you!
