Vehicle Safety

In terms of keeping your vehicle on track during slippery conditions, the Ford Fusion features AdvanceTrac® and the Honda Accord comes with Vehicle Stability Assist. These systems will activate during instances of wheel slip to provide brake pressure to the affected wheels as well as reducing engine speed in an effort to keep the vehicle on its projected path.

When it comes to keeping you and your passengers safe, each vehicle features an advanced airbag system. These airbags will measure the severity of impact and adjust the inflation pressure accordingly. Both vehicles are fitted with front, side, and side curtain airbags.
