The rearview cameras standard on many Honda models have been recognized for safety technology from the National Traffic Highway Safety Administration. The manufacturer was the first to be recognized by the U.S. Department of Transportation for having met its Advanced Technology Feature performance criteria.
Nearly all Honda models come standard with the rearview camera. They include:
- Honda Accord Sedan
- Honda Accord Coupe
- Honda Civic Sedan
- Honda Civic Coupe
- Honda Crosstour
- Honda CR-V
- Honda Odyssey
- Honda Pilot
- Honda Ridgeline
The 2015 Honda Fit is the next model to come standard with the rearview camera.
“Rearview cameras are an integral part of Honda’s approach to enhance driver visibility,” said Art St. Cyr, vice president of product planning and logistics at American Honda. “By the 2015 model year all Honda and Acura models will have rearview cameras standard on all models, yet another example of how our company is committed to enhancing the visibility and safety of our customers and everyone on the road.”
The NHTSA added rearview cameras to its list of recommended advanced technology features because it is encouraging manufacturers to improve rearview visibility. Rearview cameras are truly one of the safest parts of the modern vehicle, because you see exactly what is behind you, whether it is a vehicle, tree, animal or even person.
Rearview cameras are just one aspect of American Honda’s 360-degree approach to enhanced driver visibility and situational awareness, demonstrated by the broad application of technologies such as FCW and LDW systems on Honda models. These systems use a camera mounted behind the windshield or a front mount radar system to warn drivers of a potential collision with a vehicle detected in front of them, or to alert drivers if the car is unexpectedly moving out of a detected lane. Other available features aimed at improving driver visibility are the Expanded View Driver’s Mirror, Honda LaneWatch display and Acura’s Blind Spot Information (BSI) system.
