5 Must have Safety Features in a Car

Owning a car like Honda passport is considered a luxury and people often take pride in what they own. However, just having a 4 wheeler vehicle that you travel in is not enough. It’s more important to have a safe ride than a fast one. Either it’s a low budget car or some expensive sports car, safety always comes first.

So, let’s just take a look over some safety features that are a must to have. Novice drivers, take note and experienced ones, make sure.

  • Airbags

Road rash is a thing everyone and accidents cannot be predicted. You have to have a good number of airbags to minimize the damage or avoid it as much as you can.

  • Black box

It’s mandatory in some countries to have a camera in every vehicle. However, this is not the case in India but you can still choose it. Having a black box, in my opinion, is for the best. Not just it will secure your car but also unnoticed suspicious activities can be captured as well. A step up for the security of all.

  • Adaptive Cruise Control

This feature comes in almost all of the new models and is simply amazing. It uses sensors to maintain a safe distance and provides throttle when required. In case of any expected collision, it locks the doors and tightens the seatbelt. Overall, a lifesaver.

  • Automatic Emergency Brake

For those who just in case of a coming collision doesn’t act instantly, this feature starts applying brakes for you. A good effort as a lot of people panic under unforeseen circumstances.

  • Child Safety Seat

Whenever you are traveling with a kid of 6 years or less, always put them in the back seat in their safety chair. This is something that you have to install on your own but it’s only for the greater good. So, put a little effort.

Yes, yes, I didn’t forget seat belts because it’s a given and common sense. Also, take note that seat belts are for every passenger and not just for people at the front. No matter if it’s a Honda passport or some other car, every seat is provided with a seatbelt.

Needless, to say that as you go up the budget, there are more sophisticated than safety features in each model like safety exit assist and don’t forget car insurance. Top it up with a little bit of travel insurance and I would call it a day. I hope this is helpful. Safe driving everyone. Don’t drink and drive.
