The world is a dangerous place. And some of the most dangerous places in the world are on our nation’s highways. This disturbing fact is borne out by grim statistics. Every year, there are more than six million car accidents in the U.S., resulting in more than 37,000 lost lives, or about 100 deaths per day. This terrifying stat hits close to home, as the country’s most dangerous highway is right here in Arizona: Interstate 10.
Haven’t cars gotten safer over the years? Why do we still have so many fatal car crashes? A National Motor Vehicle Crash Causation Survey determined that more than 90% of vehicle crash deaths are due to driver error. That’s why Honda has been laser-focused on developing advanced driver-assistive safety technologies designed to reduce driver error as part of its global “Safety for Everyone” initiative.

How does Honda Sensing compare to rival driver-assist features?
Standard Honda Sensing vs The Competition
When it comes to vehicle safety, Honda takes a back seat to no one. Compared to the competition, the Honda Sensing suite of standard safety features is superior in many ways. Here are some specific examples of how Honda Sensing outpaces the competition:
The 2022 Honda Odyssey Touring offers Honda Sensing’s Road Departure Mitigation System as standard equipment. You won’t find that safety feature on the 2021 Toyota Sienna Limited, the 2021 Pacifica Limited, or the 2021 Kia Sedona SX.
When comparing the 2021 Passport Sport SUV with the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, you’ll find that the Passport comes equipped with Honda Sensing’s Collision Mitigation Braking System as standard equipment. Similar collision mitigation safety technology is an expensive option on the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. Plus, the 2021 Passport Sport offers unique camera views and standard Adaptive Cruise Control which is not available on the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo.
If you’re in the market for one of the safest cars for sale near Phoenix, then the redesigned 2021 Honda Accord Sport SE is a great choice. The Accord offers Honda’s standard Road Departure Mitigation System, which you won’t find on the 2020 Toyota Camry SE, the 2020 Nissan Altima SV, or the 2020 Hyundai Sonata SEL.
And when it comes to the safest SUV for sale near Phoenix, your top pick should be the 2021 Honda CR-V AWD EX, which offers Honda’s standard Road Departure Mitigation System. That kind of advanced safety tech isn’t available on the 2021 Toyota RAV4 XLE FWD, the 2021 Nissan Rogue SV FWD, or the 2021 Subaru Forester 2.5i Premium AWD.
The 2021 CR-V AWD EX also offers a Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Monitor as standard equipment. Similar blind-spot warning technology is a pricey option on the Forester 2.5i Premium AWD.
Year after year, Honda’s commitment to superior safety has been acknowledged by automotive industry experts and leading independent government testing agencies like the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
