Blind Spot Information (BSI) System (EX and above)

What’s the Benefit?

BSI helps give the driver additional information about conditions on both sides of the vehicle to enhance driving confidence.

The Feature:

Accord Hybrid EX and above trims include an innovative and useful blind spot information system (BSI)14.

  • A pair of sensors, one on each rear corner of the vehicle, can detect a vehicle in an adjacent lane.
  • An indicator located in each side mirror then illuminates to alert the driver.
  • If BSI detects an object to the side of the Accord when the turn signal is on in that direction, the indicator flashes and an alert sounds to catch the driver’s attention.
  • Engineered for relatively close range, the system covers an area on each side of the vehicle from each exterior mirror extending about 13 feet rearward and 10.5 feet out from the side of the vehicle.
  • To prevent false alarms while maneuvering at low speed, the system is disabled below approximately 6 mph.
