“At Honda, we feel that this visibility feature will be important to many families and we’re widely applying it even before we may be required to do so,” said Vicki Poponi, assistant vice president of product planning for American Honda. “In addition to the wide application of the rear-view camera technology, Honda is also introducing several new features for enhanced driver safety, visibility and security in model-year 2013.”

Along with rearview cameras, 2013 model year Honda’s will get other safety features as options such as Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) systems. Both will be available on the 2013 Honda Accord and Crosstour.
