It’s certainly not news that both Toyota and Honda have for years been considered frontrunners when it comes to offering the latest safety technology at an affordable price for Brandon drivers. For the last several model years, both automakers have been equipping their vehicles with a wide array of both standard and available active safety features.

But which is better: Honda Sensing or Toyota Safety Sense? 

Honda Sensing vs. Toyota Safety Sense Features

Whether you choose Honda Sensing Suite or Toyota Safety Sense, you can look forward to:

  • Lane Departure Warning – lets you know when you’re inadvertently drifting out of your lane.
  • Forward Collision Warning – alerts you of an imminent collision and will automatically begin braking if you fail to respond in time.
  • Auto High-Beam Headlights – automatically transitions between high beams and low-beam headlights based on a variety of factors.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control –  establishes and maintains a safe distance between your car and the vehicle in front of you, perfect for busy rush-hour commutes to and from Ridgeland.

Honda Sensing Features Not Offered with Toyota Safety Sense

Still, you might be surprised to learn that there are several features found in the Honda Sensing system that you won’t find with Toyota Safety Sense, such as:

  • Honda LaneWatch™ – displays live video from the right side of your vehicle on your touchscreen any time you turn on your right turn signal.
  • Blind Spot Information System – emits a noise to warn you when your turning signal is on and a vehicle is detected in the lane corresponding to the direction of your turn signal.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System – helps your Honda maintain a centered position in its lane.
  • Cross Traffic Monitor – warns you of a vehicle approaching from behind when you shift your car into reverse.
