Honda understands the importance of staying safe out on the road and how much you rely on your vehicle to keep you and your loved ones protected. That is why every Honda model is equipped with a variety of safety and driver-assisted features that will give you the peace of mind you deserve. You will also find that Honda has taken extra measures to further ensure your well-being by offering technology with unique purposes and placing these systems into two distinct categories: active safety and passive safety. Here at Moon Township Honda, your Honda Pittsburgh dealer, we want you to know the purposes behind these two categories, what makes them different, and how they work to keep you safe as you travel. The Honda active and passive safety features are there to let you relax, enjoy every second of your trip, and know that your Honda model has you covered.

What Is Active And What Is Passive?

Active Safety Features

These safety features continually operate while you drive, allowing you to concentrate on the road ahead and where you are going. They are there to help you avoid potential danger, handle whatever terrain you come across, and even navigate particularly narrow parking spaces. Several examples of Honda active safety features are:

- Multi-Angle Rearview Camera

- Active Stability Systems (Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control, Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist)

- Honda Sensing® (An intelligent suite containing components like Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM), Lane Keep Assist System (LKAS), Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR)

Our expert staff at Moon Township Honda, your local Honda dealer, will be glad to demonstrate how these Honda active safety features work and show you others that will help you feel more secure about getting behind the wheel of the Honda model you have always wanted.

Passive Safety Features

This category contains those systems that are built right in your Honda model and will only activate in emergency situations. In other words, you will not even notice the passive safety features until they are needed to shield you from a collision or impact. These range from the precise engineering of the body of your vehicle to the precautions Honda placed inside your cabin. Passive safety features include:

- ACE™ Body Structure (this Honda-exclusive body design improves the protection of your occupants from crashes by distributing kinetic energy evenly throughout the front of your Honda model).

- Front Seat Belts with Pretensioner and Load Limiter (The front seat belts will immediately retract whenever an impact is detected, then slightly give in order to reduce the pressure on your chest)

- Advanced Airbag Technology (All Honda models are outfitted with these advanced airbags to shield you from collisions)

Here at Moon Township Honda, your Honda Pittsburgh dealer, we will answer any question that you might have about how effective passive safety features are in ensuring the protection of you and your loved ones. We also will walk you through our extensive inventory and tell you about the active and passive safety features you will find in various Honda models. Stop in and let us help you discover the Honda model that you can always rely on today.
