Electric Power-Assisted Rack-and-Pinion Steering (EPS) (All)



What’s the Benefit?

This system gives the driver an enjoyable driving experience and easier maneuverability, while also enhancing fuel efficiency.36

The Feature:

Honda models are equipped with a steering system designed to deliver multiple benefits. 

  • The rack-and-pinion design enhances steering precision.
  • An electric-assist system allows greater fuel efficiency than an engine-driven hydraulic design.
  • The amount of assist is variable; it increases at low speeds to make tight turns easier, such as during parking maneuvers.
  • Assist decreases at higher speeds to enhance road feel.
