glossary

Bluetooth is an industry standard for data transmission used to connect your cell phone or other Bluetooth-equipped device to compatible vehicles so you can keep your hands free for the important task of driving.

These small additional speakers help ensure perfectly clear sound for your entertainment electronics in the vehicle. The tweeters, available in higher equipment variants, reduce acoustic distortion and reproduce high tones perfectly.

Our ABS anti-lock braking system prevents your wheels from locking if you brake in an emergency so that you can avoid obstacles with your automobile. This means you always stay in control regardless of the weather.

Adaptive cruise control (ACC)

Our ACC technology (adaptive cruise control) takes the stress out of long motorway journeys and helps you to keep the ideal speed and safe distance from the vehicle in front of you.
A radar sensor mounted in the grille measures the distance to the vehicle in front and controls how close you get to it. ACC works after activation by the driver.

Active front headrests

Active front headrests help protect your head, neck, and spine from the impact if someone rams your car from behind.

In the event of a collision from behind, the passenger's body is pressed against the backrest, after which this pressure is mechanically diverted away from the lumbar region. This is done by means of rods that push the headrest forward and upward, thereby reducing the distance between the head and the headrests, reducing the possibility of whiplash injury.

In the fractions of a second before an accident, our active safety technology can make all the difference. These systems include, among others. the anti-lock braking system (ABS), the electronic brake force distribution (EBD), the driver assistance package (ADAS) and the electronic stability program (VSA). Each and every one of these systems is there to protect you by preventing an accident from occurring in the first place.

ADAS (driver assistance package)

The ADAS includes, inter alia. the adaptive cruise control ACC, the lane departure warning system LKAS and the preventive driver assistance system CMBS.

ACE body structure (Advanced Compatibility Engineering)

Our automobiles, which are designed to protect you in a head-on collision, are equipped with a frame structure that has been specially designed to reduce the forces of an impact.

The innovative construction of the body absorbs the impact energy in a large area in order to preserve the space inside the automobile and to protect you and your passengers. The ACE body structure not only redirects the forces acting from the front, but can also minimize damage to other vehicles involved in a collision.

Enjoy a smoother, quieter ride while saving fuel. Our automobiles are built with aerodynamics in mind, and we work hard to keep the drag coefficient (Cw) as small as possible. While this is a technical process, the smaller this number gets, the smaller the wind resistance gets and this will help you glide forward with ease.

The brake assistant recognizes whether you are performing an emergency stop and automatically increases the braking force. This strong braking force helps you to shorten your braking distance.

Preventive Driver Assistance System (CMBS)

Our preventive driver assistance system (CMBS) warns you of an impending collision or - if it is already too late - automatically applies the brakes.

A small radar transmitter, which is attached behind the radiator, works as a kind of eye that constantly sends out a signal and evaluates the echo of this signal. This system can recognize an obstacle and calculate its distance and differential speed (approach speed).

If the system detects an obstacle above a certain threshold, it warns you with a flashing light and an alarm signal. If you don't react, the system gently applies the brakes and gently pulls on your seat belt. If you still do not react and a head-on collision is imminent, both seat belts are tightened and the brakes are applied hard.

The CMBS collision warning and protection system lowers the impact speed, reduces the potential damage to your automobile and, most importantly, takes care of your own protection and that of your passengers.

A common rail diesel engine enables extremely precisely measured quantities of fuel to be injected quickly into the combustion chamber. As a result, the fuel forms a finer mist and burns more efficiently.

The result is a quiet, economical engine that also offers lower emissions.

Continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT)

The continuously variable CVT automatic transmission is a sophisticated variant of the automatic transmission. By seamlessly shifting within a nearly endless range of gear ratios, it offers silky smooth efficiency and greater fuel economy.

Thieves who try to steal your car from the outside or by smashing the windows from the inside will not be able to gain access as the locks can only be operated by you and your key remote control.

Double wishbone suspension

This suspension offers the highest precision in wheel movement and also reduces the movement of the body when braking and cornering. This means that you can expect predictable, reliable driving behavior and enjoy the ride.

Electronic brake force distribution (EBD)

Works together with the ABS anti-lock braking system and directs your braking force exactly where it is needed. The system adjusts the braking force on the front and rear wheels to maximize braking force.

Electronic control unit (ECU)

This computer takes care of your engine and what it's supposed to do.

Electronic throttle control (ETCS)

Also known as drive-by-wire (DbW), this system uses electronic sensors to detect throttle position and control your engine control system. The result is an instant smooth response from the moment you touch the accelerator pedal without the need for a mechanical connection.

Electrically assisted power steering (EPS)

The electrically assisted power steering EPS does not use hydraulics to assist the steering, but a motor and is operated not by the vehicle engine but by the battery, which helps to reduce fuel consumption and emissions.

Ergonomics is an applied science that is used to design an environment that is optimal for people. At Honda, ergonomics are used to ensure that your vehicle offers the highest levels of safety and comfort.

You will find your vehicle controls and instruments where it makes sense and we will make sure they are easy to understand and use. We've also paid attention to the smallest details - from the controls mounted on the steering wheel to the driver's seats, which are designed to be comfortable while keeping you alert.

A look at fuel consumption and CO2 emissions gives a good indication of a vehicle's performance.

The Vehicle Certification Agency (VCA) ensures that all automobile manufacturers measure fuel consumption in the same way using an industry standard test so that you can make reliable comparisons between different models.

This built-in intelligent system, used in some automatic transmissions, finds the optimal gear ratio for your driving style and road conditions. It is particularly suitable for driving on the mountain or in curves.

Xenon headlights (HID, High Intensity Discharge)

Instead of a light bulb, HID lamps contain the noble gas xenon, which is ignited by an electric spark and provides an intense light similar to daylight to illuminate the road in front of the vehicle. This gives you the benefit of brighter headlights and better visibility.

This system helps with difficult starts on steep inclines by preventing your vehicle from rolling for one second when you put your foot off the brake pedal on the accelerator.

Our hybrid vehicles are designed to run on both gasoline and electricity, and offer lower emissions and better fuel economy.

ICE (abbreviation for in-car entertainment, vehicle entertainment system or for internal combustion engine)

Depending on the context, this acronym will refer to either the stereo or the engine of your automobile, but usually the stereo.

i-CTDi (Intelligent Common Rail Turbo Diesel Injection)

This is a type of diesel engine that is featured on some of Honda’s automobiles that use common rail injection.

i-DSi (Intelligent Sequential Dual Ignition)

This engine offers better fuel consumption and lower emissions thanks to the control of the ignition timing of its spark plugs.

The i-DTEC is a new generation intelligent engine and uses the latest common rail technology and the latest variable turbocharger to give you smoother, quieter and more powerful driving.

IMA (Integrated Motor Assist)

By combining a gasoline engine and an electric motor, the integrated engine assistant IMA uses the capabilities of hybrid technology to reduce emissions and improve fuel economy.

i-SHIFT (Intelligent Shift, automated manual transmission)

In contrast to an automatic transmission, an i-SHIFT transmission does not have a torque converter. Instead, it shares the same clutch as a 1.4 manual transmission and can be used with paddles on the steering wheel or your sequential shifter.

ISOFix (ISO 13216 standard of the International Organization for Standardization, International Organization for Standardization)

The ISOFix standard, developed for the protection of your children, ensures that every child seat is securely attached to the chassis of your vehicle.

This intelligent gasoline engine improves performance, fuel economy and emissions by combining variable valve timing and electronic valve lift control (VTEC) with variable valve timing (VTC).
