The Honda Civic Type R also boasts a variety of different driver assistance systems, which makes somewhat difficult driving like hill starts that one bit easier. These include the likes of:
This is a collision avoidance system which is designed to prevent or reduce the severity of a collision. Initially, the system will warn the driver and then adjusts the braking and steering to best avoid overall damage.
The system is used to warn the driver when a driver begins to move out of the lane without applying the indicators and helps to keep the car stay in lane.
A traffic sign recognition system uses a front-facing camera, which scans ahead of the road and will notify the driver as to the driver needs to abide by.
