Honda is a company dedicated to safety. However, as many automakers make similar claims, we wanted to take a moment to explain to you exactly what sets Honda apart from its competitors. It all boils down to the company's safety philosophy.
Honda Safety Philosophy
"Honda is committed to providing safety for everyone - not only for our own drivers and passengers, but also for the occupants of other vehicles, and injury mitigation for pedestrians. We are dedicated to identifying and implementing advanced designs and features that help enhance the safety of vehicles on the road. As a leader, Honda, looks beyond government regulations, studying real-world situations to develop new safety technologies for everyone."1
But enough pontificating... Here's how Honda puts their distinctive safety philosophy in to everyday practice:- Side curtain airbags for every row of every vehicle
- Occupant Protection Detection System - Stops deployment of airbags when it senses a child is sitting in the front seat
- Gold Wing Airbag System - First of its kind on a production motorcycle
- Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure
- Exterior design specially engineered to reduce pedestrian injuries
- Vehicle Stability Assist
In addition to equipping their vehicles with a suite of active and passive safety features, the Japanese automaker built the world's largest indoor crash test facility in 2003. By gaining even greater insight into what happens in real-world collisions, Honda has effectively been able to fine-tune existing safety features and develop new technologies as well.
