Once Honda rolls out all of their 2013 model year vehicles, each one will carry with it an extra set of eyes to aid drivers. In a creed to improve and sculpt the air of vehicle visibility, more than 94 percent of all models offered will come with a rearview camera standard. Every hauler including the Odyssey, Rdgeline, CR-V, Pilot and Crosstour will get the back up assist while the CR-Z and Accord will get it standard as well. This leaves the Civic as the only (announced) Honda to not get the treatment but even still, safety is clearly a top priority for the Japanese automaker.
“At Honda, we feel that this visibility feature will be important to many families and we’re widely applying it even before we may be required to do so,” said Vicki Poponi, assistant vice president of product planning for American Honda. The widespread use of backup cameras was created by Honda’s comprehensive 360-degree approach to visibility technologies. Joining the rearview function will be front and side view assists so that vehicles such as the 2013 Accord will be able to see all around. With the multiple view points, Honda can use Forward Collision and Lane Departure Warnings as well as LaneWatch blind spot display to further enhance safety.
