Honda Safety in Shelby, NC, Close to Gastonia, NC and Gaffney, SC
The Two Sides of Safety
Not all vehicle safety technology serves the same purpose. That’s why Honda employs two different methods to help make our vehicles even safer.
Active Safety Technologies
Active Safety technologies are those that are always at work so you can focus on the drive, like the standard Multi-Angle Rearview Camera and active stability systems.
Passive Safety systems are those you hope you’ll never need, but are critical to your safety in the event of a collision.

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera
Choose from three different angles — normal, top-down and wide — to get a better view of what’s behind you every time you shift into reverse.*
*Always visually confirm that it is safe to drive before backing up; the rearview camera display does not provide complete information about all conditions and objects at the rear of your vehicle.
Active Stability Systems
- Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control
- Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)
- Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD)

ACE™ Body Structure
This Honda-exclusive body design enhances occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal collisions by distributing crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle.
Front Seat Belts with Pretensioner and Load Limiter
When a strong frontal impact is detected, the front seat belts instantly retract, then give slightly if the load on the seat belt exceeds a certain amount, reducing the pressure it applies to the occupant’s chest.
Advanced Airbag Technology
Every Honda is equipped with advanced front airbags to help protect you in the event of a collision. Select models are also equipped with SmartVent® front side airbags, side curtain airbags with rollover sensor and front knee airbags to help provide further protection.
