Honda and Toyota have been at the forefront of the market when it comes down to helpful safety technologies for your hectic Seattle commute. Both Honda Sensing Suite and Toyota Safety Sense technologies employ active features to help crashes from occurring. But which safety package — and, as a consequence, which brand — is best for me? No matter if you’re behind the wheel of a sedan, SUV, van, truck, or any other vehicle style, Honda of Kirkland is here to provide everything you need to know about Honda Sensing and Toyota Safety Sense options so you can have peace of mind on Redmond and Woodinville roads and beyond.

Honda Sensing vs. Toyota Safety Sense 2.0: Standard Features

The Honda Sensing Suite, like Toyota Safety Sense, offers:

  • Lane Departure Warning: Emits a helpful warning in the event of drifting.
  • Forward Collision Warning: Alerts you in the unlikely event of a collision, and automatically engages the brakes if you respond too slowly.
  • Auto High-Beam Headlights: Switches between high- and low-beam lights depending on select conditions.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control: Helps you maintain space between the vehicle in front of you, during your Seattle commute.

However, the Honda Sensing Suite offers additional safety features — features your Kirkland family shouldn’t miss out on — across many Honda models, including every trim level of the Honda Passport midsize SUV.

What does Honda Sensing Offer that Toyota Safety Sense Doesn’t?

Honda Sensing offers the following features that Toyota Safety Sense doesn’t:

  • Honda LaneWatch™: Any time you signal right, the camera on the right passenger-side mirror will display live video on your Touch-Screen.
  • Blind Spot Information System: When your turning signal is on and your Honda detects a vehicle in the lane next to you, a helpful warning sound emits.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System: Adjusts your steering to center your Honda between lane markers.
  • Cross Traffic Monitor: When your Honda is in reverse, this system warns you of a vehicle approaching from behind.
  • Auto High-Beam Headlights: When driving at night above 25 mph, your headlight system will automatically change between low and high beams depending on the driving conditions.

Which Honda Vehicles Have Honda Sensing Standard?

You can find the Honda Sensing Package in a variety of Honda styles and trim levels to meet your needs. That way you don’t have to break the bank on newer models or higher trim levels just to get the security and protection you need. 

Coupes, Hatchbacks, Plug-Ins, Sedans, and Subcompacts

Crossovers, Pickups, SUVs, and Vans
