Active Safety Features in Honda vs Subaru

But many active features including lane departure warning do not come standard with the Subaru Legacy.

The Honda Accord offers the Honda Sensing® suite standard with all Honda Accord trims. You'll be able to have peace of mind inside the Accord with standard features like the Collision Mitigation Braking System™. 

This system will begin to brake your vehicle if you start to come too close to a car ahead of you.

While the Subaru Legacy is a safe vehicle with many active safety features, the Honda Accord just offers more features that come standard across all trims.
