What Is Forward Collision Warning?

Forward Collision Warning
Forward Collision Warning is a driver assist feature that sends alerts to warn Rochester drivers of a possible oncoming collision. Part of the Honda Sensing safety suite, Forward Collision Warning is great for those situations when you may get distracted for a second. Learn more about this innovative safety feature and how it can be used in your new Honda model on your Portsmouth drive at Dover Honda!

How Does It Work?

Forward Collision Warning works by scanning the road ahead to detect a potential collision, warning drivers before it ever happens. Once the sensors detect an obstacle, it can alert you with:

  • Quick brake pulsing
  • Vibrations
  • Visuals
  • Signals
  • Noise

These warnings can make the difference between getting in vs. avoiding a dangerous collision. Take advantage of this great feature to protect yourself and your vehicle!
