Honda FCW: Everything You Need to Know

Honda Safety Features

Staying safe on our Cincinnati roads is important to you, which is why you’re interested in buying or leasing a new car equipped with Forward Collision Warning, or “FCW”. Honda makes this advanced safety feature available on just about every model as part of a suite of state-of-the-art suite of driver assist features called Honda Sensing. How does FCW work? Let’s find out!



How Does FCW Work?

So, how does FCW work? When equipped with FCW, Honda vehicles are able to alert drivers when a forward collision is imminent. Forward Collision Warning uses advanced sensors to detect a slow moving or stopped vehicle and then warns you of the hazard. We think it’s a great feature. But, of course, we’re in favor of anything that keeps our Middletown streets safer. Here are some of the highlights of this feature:

Forward Collision Warning

  • Detects vehicles, bicycles, and motorbikes
  • Works day and night in all weather conditions
  • Sensors that read up to 500 feet ahead of your vehicles, scanning over 20 times per second
  • Allows for up to 5 seconds of reaction time
  • Does not operate at speeds below 3 miles an hour in order to avoid unnecessary warnings
