Blind Spot Information System (BSI) (Select Vehicles)

What’s the Benefit?

BSI helps give the driver additional information about conditions around the vehicle to enhance driving confidence.

The Feature:

Select models include an innovative and useful BSI system.14

  • A pair of sensors, one on each rear corner of the vehicle, can detect a vehicle that may be positioned in the driver’s blind spot.
  • An indicator located in or near the side mirrors alerts the driver.
  • If BSI detects an object in an adjacent lane toward the rear of the Honda when the turn signal is on in that direction, the indicator flashes 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.

Important Note: The system is not a substitute for your own visual assessment before changing lanes; system accuracy will vary based on weather, size of object and speed.
