The 2017 Honda Accord technology features many of our drivers are interested in fall firmly under the connectivity and convenience categories, essentially making it easier to stay connected behind the wheel and to get where you need to go. These features are either standard or available on Accord Sedan and Coupe builds.
While the connectivity features often get the most attention, the 2017 Honda Accord technology features have helped enhance the vehicle’s safety and make it one of the safest cars on the road. In addition to standards like a suite of airbags, anti-lock brakes, and three-point seat belts, the Accord has a multi-angle rearview camera for peace of mind while backing up. But those features are just the start of auto safety.
The Accord has Honda Sensing features available at every trim, including:
Adaptive Cruise Control: This safety system monitors the speed of vehicles around you and adjusts your cruising speed to keep pace.
Forward Collision Warning: This Honda Sensing feature is able to track how fast you are moving and whether you’re likely to hit a car in front of you, alerting you with audio and visual warning.
Collision Mitigation Braking System: If the driver doesn’t respond to the Forward Collision Warning system, this safety feature can apply the brakes to slow or even stop the Accord when it senses an impending accident.
Road Departure Mitigation System: By monitoring markers on the side of the road, this safety feature can bring a driver’s attention back to the drive by vibrating the steering wheel and issuing warning if it senses the Accord leaving the road.
Lane Departure Warning: This safety feature watches the markings on the road and alerts the driver if it senses a drift from the lane.
Lane Keeping Assist System: If the Lane Departure Warning isn’t responded to, the Accord can adjust the engine performance and wheel torque to help keep the vehicle centered.
