Does Honda or Toyota Offer Better Safety Features?

Honda and Toyota have been at the forefront of the market when it comes down to helpful safety technologies for your hectic Los Angeles commute. Both Honda Sensing Suite and Toyota Safety Sense technologies employ active features to help crashes from occurring.

But which safety package – and, as a consequence, which brand – is best for me?

Honda Sensing vs. Toyota Safety Sense

The Honda Sensing Suite, like Toyota Safety Sense, offers:

  • Lane Departure Warning – emits a helpful warning in the event of drifting.
  • Forward Collision Warning – alerts you in the event of a collision, and automatically engages the brakes if you respond too slowly.
  • Auto High-Beam Headlights – switches between high- and low-beam lights depending on select conditions.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control – helps you maintain space between the vehicle in front of you, during your Inglewood commute.

What Does Honda Sensing Offer that Toyota Safety Sense Doesn’t?

However, the Honda Sensing Suite offers additional safety features – features Santa Monica drivers shouldn’t miss out on. They include:

  • Honda LaneWatch™ – any time you signal right, the camera on the right passenger-side mirror will display live video on your central display.
  • Blind Spot Information System – when your turning signal is on and your Honda detects a vehicle in the lane next to you, a helpful warning sound emits.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System – adjusts your steering to center your Honda between lane markers.
  • Cross Traffic Monitor – when your Honda is in reverse, this system warns you of a vehicle approaching from behind.
