In other words, Honda is always looking to up their safety game. They also know that technology moves fast. And that's why they'll be making rearview cameras a standard feature in nearly all models in 2013. Backup cameras are still a new technology that many automakers are working to perfect. So for Honda to have polished the technology to the point where they can equip them in vehicles without charging a premium says quite a bit about their level of confidence.
Of course, we're guessing you're more interested what models they'll actually be equipped in as standard features than what such a move says about the company's integrity. Thus far, the Honda Accord, Crosstour, CR-V, CR-Z, Odyssey, Pilot, and Ridgeline have been confirmed for rearview cameras next year.
And when can we expect to see the rest of the Honda lineup equipped with rearview cameras? Soon; as in, probably the next couple of years. Rumor has it that a government mandate may require all vehicles made to offer them as standard fare, which explains why Honda is making the move now before the competition.
