The system can slow or help steer the car to prevent the Accord from ending up on the shoulder or in a ditch. Likewise, it has a lane departure system that regulates the car's trajectory within its marked lane lines. A third Honda Sensing system is the forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking. Standard adaptive cruise control can make decisions before the driver is forced to respond.

The Accord has passed all of its crash testing from both the National Highway Traffic Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
