    Got an Accord with "Collision mitigation". In my ignorance thought the car would brake and avoid a collision, but I referenced "mitigation" and got the following answer..

    The action of reducing the severity, seriousness, or painfulness of something........So I guess this means you will still whack the other guy in the ass, but not enough to kill you. Would it not make sense to brake a lil earlier and avoid any conflict?

    I couldn't have put it better myself, the word suggest mitigate here means to lessen the blow on full collision in turn reducing the chance of serous injury.

    Your last line of defence when you the driver makes an error.

    Have a look at this article 2013 Honda Accord Technologies
