Honda Blind Spot Information System (BSI)

Honda’s commitment to safety is evident from standard Honda Sensing® on nearly all new vehicles to its countless awards from automotive authorities like the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).


Next in line for a review? The Honda Blind Spot Information System (BSI) with Cross Traffic Monitor. Join Vern Eide Honda Sioux City as we explore what BSI is, how it works, and which Honda models come equipped with this intuitive driver-assistive technology.

What is the Honda Blind Spot Information System?

The Blind Spot Information System (BSI) from Honda is designed to enhance driver awareness. This driver-assist feature can help detect and alert you to the presence of other vehicles on either side of your Honda while attempting to change lanes.

How does the Blind Spot Information System work?

Honda’s Blind Spot Information System uses radar to scan approximately 10 feet to each side of the vehicle and 15 feet back from the front doors. When BSI recognizes a vehicle occupying the adjacent lane, the system will display a visual warning on your side mirror. If you activate your turn signal to change lanes, that same visual warning will blink and an audible beep will sound.

Adjusting your Blind Spot Information Settings

Refer to the steps below to customize your BSI settings.

  1. Choose the Settings menu from your Display Audio touchscreen
  2. Select Vehicle
  3. Select Driver Assist System Setup and then Blind Spot Information
  4. Then choose from Audible and Visual Alert, just Visual Alert, or Off to disable BSI

Note: For BSI to work properly, the vehicle must be traveling at least 20 MPH. BSI may not alert you if the speed difference between vehicles is too great, i.e., the upcoming/passing automobile is approaching too quickly. The driver should always visually confirm that the adjacent lane is clear.

* The system is not a substitute for your own visual assessment before changing lanes. BSI may not detect all objects behind or to the side of a vehicle and may not detect a given object; system accuracy will vary based on weather, size of object, and speed. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions.
