Besides the implementation of technology rear-view cameras, Honda is also introducing several other features to improve safety and driver visibility in the 2013 model range.
2013 Honda cars will encounter a series of improvements. Rear-view cameras are adopted by Honda keeping in mind, better driver visibility and security. 2013 cars of Honda Accord and Honda Crosstour will witness Security Technologies, New Collision Warning Systems and Lane Departure Front. These systems utilize a camera mounted behind the windshield to warn drivers of a possible collision or if the car is about to leave your lane.
Other Honda technologies to improve driver visibility include expanded view mirror, which is standard on the Honda CR-V, 2012, and the Honda exclusive LaneWatchTM system, which lets you see the blind spot.

This unique technology will be incorporated in the Accord of 2013, followed by the 2013 Crosstour.
