Blind Spot Information System (BSI) (Honda Sensing® feature) (Sport and EX-L)

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:
HR-V Sport and EX-L trims make available an innovative and useful blind spot information system (BSI)14.

  • The system works when your vehicle is moving forward at about 20 mph or above.
  • A pair of sensors, one on each rear corner of the HR-V, 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 HR-V when the turn signal is on in that direction, the indicator flashes and an alert sounds to catch the driver’s attention.
  • The alert zones on each side initially extend from about 1.6 to 10 feet from the sides of the vehicle and about 10 feet past the rear bumper.
  • As the vehicle is driven more on straight roads with traffic and roadside objects, the system will adapt and extend the alert zone about another 82 feet back.
  • The faster vehicles are traveling in the extended zones, the farther away they will be detected.
