INNOVATIVE ACE BODY STRUCTURE
Honda’s exclusive Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure is applied on every Honda and Acura vehicle, distributing frontal crash energy more evenly throughout the vehicle, better protecting occupants in the event of a crash.
SAFETY & DRIVER ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGIES
Honda has deployed its Honda Sensing® and AcuraWatch® suites of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies in nearly seven million vehicles on U.S. roads. The company also has announced plans to apply the next-generation of its advanced suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies – Honda Sensing 360 – to all new Honda and Acura models in the U.S. by 2030.
AWARD-WINNING NEXT-GENERATION AIRBAGS
Our world’s first passenger front airbag designs, like the one conceived by Honda engineers in Ohio, are a major leap forward, designed to cradle and protect the head to reduce the chance of severe brain trauma associated with angled frontal collisions.
FIGHTING COUNTERFEIT AIRBAGS
Honda has led an industry-wide bipartisan effort to enact laws in 32 states that prohibit the trafficking of counterfeit airbags. That means more than half of America is now protected against these dangerous and potentially lethal counterfeit airbags.
PEDESTRIAN INJURY MITIGATION DESIGN
For more than 15 years, all new Honda and Acura vehicles have featured pedestrian injury mitigation design features such as breakaway wiper pivots and collapsible hood hinges, totaling more than 20 million vehicles purchased by U.S. customers to date.
INNOVATION IN INJURY PREVENTION
Honda has broadened the scope of its effort to mitigate pedestrian injuries by developing the third generation pedestrian dummy, POLAR III, to study lower back and upper leg injuries which are common in collisions between a pedestrian and a minivan or SUV.
IMPROVING RECALL COMPLETION RATES
Honda is committed to repairing or accounting for 100 percent of all vehicles impacted by a safety-related defect. We believe the most effective approach is to tie registration of a vehicle to remedy of the defect, and we have worked with other stakeholders to develop model legislation for states to enact.
