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.

Safety Education

Auto collisions are a leading cause of preventable death for teens. Learn how you can help your teen stay safe on the road.

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.

Safety Education

While all Honda vehicles come with several advanced safety features, defensive driving is the best way to prevent accidents.

Teen Drivers

Inexperience is a leading cause of crashes involving teens. That’s why Honda has teamed up with the National Safety Council to offer parents valuable resources they can use to help teach their teens how to be safe on the road.

Pointers for Parents

Parents are the number-one influence on teen drivers. To help you coach your teen, the National Safety Council has developed a series of lessons and tips designed to give your new driver valuable experience behind the wheel. For example, just 30 minutes of driving practice a week can help your teen become a better, more defensive driver.

New Driver Deal

Before your teen grabs the keys, it’s important to discuss the rules and expectations that accompany safe driving. The National Safety Council makes this conversation easier with the New Driver Deal, a printable guide you and your teen can use to help establish ground rules, privileges and responsibilities.
