Safety technologies that help prevent crashes

LKAS (Lane Keep Assist System)
The Lane Keep Assist System (LKAS) is a driver assistance system that provides steering assistance when driving on highways and other fast roads to make staying in detected traffic lane easier.
*The Honda Intelligent Driver Support System (HiDS) is a safety technology package that combines LKAS with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).

Safety technologies that help avoid hazardous conditions

VSA (Vehicle Stability Assist System)
Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) is a system designed to prevent sideways skidding when cornering, thus complementing ABS (which prevents wheel lockup) and TCS (which prevents tire slippage) to help ensure vehicle stability in most driving conditions—going, turning, and stopping.

Pre-Crash Safety: Technologies that Predict and Mitigate Risk of Collision

City-Brake Active System (Collision Mitigation Brakes and False Start Prevention)
The City-Brake Active System provides automatic braking assistance at speeds less than approximately 30km/h to prevent or mitigate damage from a collision with a vehicle detected in front of the CMBS equipped vehicle. It also includes a function that helps to prevent sudden acceleration in situations where the accelerator pedal is pressed when there is an obstacle detected directly in front of the vehicle. (The false start prevention function is not available on models equipped with a manual transmission.)
