Features of Vezel’s safety performance
Source: Honda “Vezel” preventive safety performance
The Vezel is equipped with Honda’s safe driving support system “Honda Sensing”. Honda Sensing is a system that uses a monocular camera and millimeter-wave radar to detect the surroundings and assist the driver in safe driving.
Vehicles equipped with Honda Sensing Vezel fall under the category of “Sapo Car S Basic+”, which requires the installation of automatic braking for vehicles and an acceleration control device for when the pedal is pressed incorrectly, among the “Sapo Car” classifications recommended by the government for widespread use. increase.
Contents of “Honda Sensing” installed in Vezel
Here, we will introduce the contents of Honda Sensing installed in Vezel. Vezel is equipped with 8 types of advanced safety functions.
・Collision mitigation brake
This function is generally called automatic braking or anti-collision braking. When the system recognizes a pedestrian in front or a preceding vehicle and determines that there is a risk of collision, it activates in stages from warning, brake assist, and automatic braking. system to avoid or reduce collision damage.
When the system senses danger, it first alerts the driver with a warning sound and display, and if the driver does not take any action to avoid the object and the distance to the object approaches, it activates weak automatic braking, but the danger of collision is still further increased. If it gets high, it activates a powerful automatic brake.
The Collision Mitigation Braking on the Vezel can detect pedestrians during the day, but only during the day and not at night. Risk of collision with oncoming vehicles and pedestrians when the vehicle is traveling at a speed of approximately 80 to 100 km/h, and with a speed difference of approximately 5 km/h or more between the preceding vehicle and pedestrians. It is activated when it is determined that there is
Since hybrid vehicles are equipped with a reactive force pedal, it is equipped with a function to notify the driver by vibrating the accelerator pedal at the warning stage, and a function to retract the seat belt when the automatic brake is activated.
・Incorrect start prevention function
If the accelerator is pressed hard while the vehicle is stopped or the vehicle is traveling at 10 km/h or less, and the millimeter-wave radar has already recognized an obstacle ahead, the driver will be notified by an audible warning and display, and the engine will , or a system that suppresses the output of the hybrid system to prevent sudden acceleration or sudden acceleration when the pedal is depressed by mistake.
The bezel only supports the front.
・Pedestrian accident mitigation steering
The system recognizes pedestrians in the lane and side strip, and if the system determines that the vehicle is deviating from the lane and is in danger of colliding with a pedestrian, it warns the driver with an audible warning and display. It is a system that helps avoid collisions with pedestrians by prompting and assisting steering operation.
It works while driving at about 10-40km/h or less.
・Road departure prevention function
A monocular camera recognizes the lane, and if the system determines that the vehicle may deviate from the lane without turning on the turn signal, the driver is notified via display and steering vibrations to support steering operation. to suppress lane departure.
Even so, if the possibility of straying too far out of the lane becomes even greater, the function automatically activates the brakes to slow down the vehicle and help the vehicle return to driving within the lane.
In addition to the steering operation support function, Honda Sensing is designed to operate even the automatic braking. It can be said that it is a safety function unique to Honda Sensing, which is one step ahead.
・Lane keeping support system
This function contributes to safe driving by allowing the system to detect lanes and assist steering operations to keep the vehicle in the center of the lane during normal driving. If the vehicle is about to stray from the lane, it alerts the driver with an audible warning and steering vibration, and assists in steering operation.
・Logo recognition function
A monocular camera is a function that recognizes signs and prevents missing signs. It recognizes the four signs of maximum speed, no straying, stop, and no entry, and displays them on the multi-information display to help prevent drivers from overlooking the signs.
The maximum speed limit and no straying traffic will be notified when the sign is passed, and the temporary stop and no entry will be notified before the sign.
・Preceding vehicle start notification function
When the distance to the vehicle ahead is within 10m and the vehicle ahead does not operate the accelerator even if the vehicle ahead starts moving, a warning sound and display will be displayed to prevent delays in waiting for traffic lights and traffic jams. It’s a function.
・Adaptive cruise control
This system drives at a constant speed at a preset speed, automatically accelerates and decelerates when there is a preceding vehicle, and maintains an appropriate inter-vehicle distance while following the vehicle, contributing to reducing driver fatigue and supporting safe driving. . It is mainly used on highways and motorways.
Vezel’s adaptive cruise control operates above 30km/h and cancels at speeds below that.
The above eight functions are the contents of Honda Sensing installed in the bezel.
Collision safety performance in case of collision

The bezel not only has airbags for the driver and front passenger, but also the side for the front seats for grades other than “HYBRID Honda SENSING” and “G Honda SENSING”, which are the basic grades of hybrid and gasoline vehicles. It is equipped with an airbag system and a sight curtain airbag system that covers from the front seats to the rear seats.
Vezel equipped with advanced safety functions
The safety performance of the vezel is equipped with functions that involve steering operation and adaptive cruise control, and it is an impression that it is equipped with quite a lot. There is nothing better than a vehicle that carries people’s lives and has a full range of safety performance.
Please enjoy your life with a car that you can use with peace of mind with Vezel equipped with a full range of advanced safety functions.
