Technology in vehicles, such as Honda Sensing in Bend OR, has come a long way in recent years. Now, there are collision avoidance systems designed to help drivers avoid being in an accident as well as driver assistance systems to help drivers when they’re on the road. Honda and Subaru both offer comprehensive technology and safety packages, but which one is the safest option? Check out our research on Honda Sensing vs. Subaru EyeSight to find out now.


Driver Assistance Systems

Smart driver assistance systems are designed to make driving easier and less stressful. Both Honda Sensing and Subaru EyeSight in Bend OR feature adaptive cruise control and a lane keep assist feature. Adaptive cruise control helps you maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you by automatically adjusting to their speed as you drive. Lane keep assist helps you stay in your intended lane by providing a warning if the vehicle senses it is drifting. Though these features may be similar, only Subaru EyeSight has been found to lower the possibility of rear-end crashes with injuries by up to 85%.


Collision Avoidance Systems

Along with driver assistance technology, Subaru Eyesight and Honda Sensing in Bend OR both offer collision avoidance systems including pre-collision braking.  Pre-collision braking alerts you to potential accidents and applies full braking force to stop the vehicle before a crash happens. EyeSight has been found to reduce the potential for pedestrian-related insurance claims by around 35%. What Honda Sensing does not have, however, is pre-collision throttle management. With Subaru Eyesight, if the vehicle detects you are about to hit an object, it reduces the power to the engine to help minimize the possible impact force and damage. Honda Sensing does not do this.  


The Latest Technology

Taking advantage of the latest safety technology requires purchasing a vehicle that has all of the latest features. Honda safety technology in Bend OR was introduced in 2015 and is available in most Honda models. However, only the Accord, Clarity, Insight and Pilot include the system as a standard feature on base trim levels. Subaru EyeSight, on the other hand, has been around since 2012 and half of the 2019 lineup includes these safety features standard. This includes the Outback, Forester, Legacy, and Ascent. It is also available in other Subaru vehicles as an add-on if you’d like to make sure the vehicle you purchase has more to keep you safe on the road.

While Honda does apply a lot of the latest technology in vehicles equipped with Honda Sensing in Bend OR, the clear winner is Subaru EyeSight. Subaru EyeSight has been around longer, which means it has been tested and improved more than Honda Sensing. The system is also available in more vehicles and with more features such as pre-collision throttling to help keep you safer when you’re on the road.
