The all new Honda Accord 2013 features an array of technological advances for your safety, convenience and entertainment. Welcome to the best technology to be featured in a Honda – working to make your driving experience as safe as possible.
Making your drive safer is the LaneWatch blind spot display – a Honda innovation that uses a camera located on the passenger-side mirror to provide you with a better view (two lanes of traffic) of your blind spot which is then displayed on your dashboard screen. You’ll be able to check your most difficult blind spot without turning your head. This way you’re able to keep your eyes on the road and change lanes safely.
This is the first Honda vehicle to feature the Lane Departure Warning (LDW). The LDW system uses an onboard camera to monitor vehicle lane positioning and if you start to drift out of your lane without signalling, you’ll receive a visual and audio alert. The LDW attempts to keep you within the lanes and get you where you need to go without drifting into fellow drivers’ traffic.
The Forward Collision Warning (FCW) system, similar to the LDW, uses an onboard camera to decipher if the gap between you and the car ahead is closing too quickly. If you are approaching too quickly you will get an audio and visual alert to warn you to slow down. The FCW works to reduce the risk of a possible rear end collision and ensures you keep a safe distance from the car ahead.
With the front and side views covered, don’t forget your rear view camera. You’ll be able to reverse into those parking spots easier with the rear view camera and the available multi-angle rear view camera which features wide, normal and top-down angles.
With these warning systems in place, there’s no doubt that the 2013 Accord is potentially Honda’s safest vehicle to date. The technology featured in this vehicle is truly remarkable. In the coming blogs, we’ll look at the entertainment and convenience features the 2013 Accord has to offer.
