Honda Sensing is now available on four of Honda’s most popular and top selling variants: Honda Civic, Honda Accord, CR-V and Honda Pilot. The Honda Sensing suite of technologies includes Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW).
