Zero traffic collision fatalities by the year 2050. Now, that might seem like a long way off, but it isn’t really ages away in the grand scheme of things. Honda, though, seems dead set on meeting this target.

To meet it, the brand continues to build upon its Honda Sensing suite of safety features. The latest upgrades to its tech is set to be rolled out in the Chinese market come 2022, with the rest of the world getting it between then and 2030.

The more a car can see, the faster it should be able to react. Do you look for features like this whenever you’re at the dealership in search of a brand-new ride?
