The large number of cars on the road today makes a crash unavoidable, so knowing which automobile safety features you ought to have ends up being vital. We’ve gone from the days of optional seat belts to standard airbags, traction control, as well as tire pressure monitoring systems in nearly all Honda-new cars and trucks on the marketplace. The list of optional safety options that’s currently offered on the majority of cars is staggering, and we’re working hard to ensure that your new Honda is the best one yet.

Car Safety Ratings are Calculated How?

Currently, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration rates cars on a 5-Star scale based upon their effectiveness in 3 certain accident scenarios: Front Collisions, Side Crashes, and Rollover Crashes. While collisions can take place in various scenarios these kinds of crashes are the most usual, and based upon the study of these accidents, the appropriate safety technologies are implemented in a vehicle; so let’s take a glance at each scenario:

Front Collision Situation

This is when two automobiles are traveling in opposite directions and hit each other in a head-on crash, or when a vehicle loses control and strikes an item (like a tree, utility pole, or a structure) in a head-on collision.

Side Crash Scenario

The most typical side collision scenario is when one automobile fails to stop at a stop sign or traffic signal and strikes the other automobile on the side. This is commonly referred to as a t-bone, as the automobiles develop a ‘T’ shape when they collide. An additional sort of side accident is when a vehicle loses control and slides sideways right into an obstacle like a utility post or tree.

Rollover Scenario

This situation is when you lose control of your automobile and it flips over. A rollover can be set off by losing control of your automobile or a mix of serious maneuvers such as fast, high-speed turning to miss a barrier.

Regardless of every one of the emerging car safety options, there are only a few that are considered mandatory by federal law. These mandated safety options include Seatbelts, Airbags, LATCH child safety seat system, Tire-Pressure Display, Electronic Stability Control, and Backup Cams. Honda new vehicles will certainly have that tech and additionally, the NHTSA recommends these Driver Assistance Technologies:
