What is "Honda Sensing" and Which used Honda Models Have it?

Honda Sensing is a suite of driver-assist safety features that help prevent accidents. Standard apps of this suite include the Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), which applies to steer when lane drifting is detected, and the Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), which applies the brakes to prevent a rear-end collision in case you do not react as fast. Since these features were introduced within the past few years, you will likely find them standard on most (if not all) certified pre-owned Honda models.

Do Other Used Cars Have Similar Safety Applications?

With used cars, it all depends on the trim level and year. Our dealership has a wide selection of high-end used luxury cars, which come loaded with lots of high-tech safety features. If you find a car from an economy brand, its base trim levels may not have similar features to Honda Sensing.

Do Other Used Cars Have Satellite Radio?
