Honda vs. Chevy: Safety Features

Road conditions are unpredictable, which is why safety features are so important. While Honda and Chevy both provide features to help you avoid collisions, Honda's safety suite, Honda Sensing™, protects drivers in more situations than Chevy safety systems. For example, Honda has Adaptive Cruise Control, and Chevy doesn't. Check out the additional safety systems available with Honda Sensing™ and how they work:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control w/Low-Speed Follow keeps a set interval between you and the car in front of you, even as traffic changes pace
  • Road Departure Mitigation detects if you're drifting too close to the side of the road without using your turn signal and alerts you or applies the brakes to keep you from going off-road
  • Lane Keeping Assist System gently adjusts the steering wheel to bring you back to the center lane when it detects you drifting from your lane without using the turn signal
  • Lane Departure Warning alerts you when it detects you drifting from your lane
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System is automatic braking, which engages when it detects an unavoidable frontal collision
  • Forward Collision Warning detects if you're at risk of colliding with the vehicle in front of you using a camera mounted at the top of the windshield, and alerts you
