Get a 10% ICBC Discount on new Honda models
Insurance premiums are a huge consideration when making a car purchase decision, especially in British Columbia where it isn't uncommon to hear of insurance costing more than one's monthly car finance payments.
The typical route to getting a lower premium has involved lowering your driver risk factor. This meant having additional years of accident-free driving added to your record which certainly takes some time to lead to anything substantial.
However, new safety tech such as that found in the Honda Sensing suite can save you money on insurance a little sooner. ICBC has recognized the fact that these innovative safety features actually reduce the likelihood and severity of a crash. As a result they now offer an Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) discount. This gives you 10% off your basic coverage and could mean hundreds of dollars in savings yearly.
Honda Sensing features the Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) which is an equivalent to AEB. It works to reduce the likelihood and severity of a frontal impact with another vehicle or pedestrian by automatically applying the brakes if it detects that a crash is inevitable. The best part is that all Honda models have Honda Sensing available!
