Top Safety Features
As a 2019 IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK, the 2019 CR-V is designed to help get you and your passengers safely to your destination as well as mitigate damages in case an accident occurs*.
The Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ Body Structure will absorb the force in the event of a collision. And to help you avoid potential collisions from occurring in the first place, you can get the available technologies that are within the Honda Sensing® system. These systems use exterior-mounted sensors that measure the speed of the vehicle, along with the proximity of the object ahead, in order to accurately predict an impending collision.
Part of the available driver-assistive system of Honda Sensing® are the following technologies:
- Forward Collision Warning– This feature uses the sensors to send an audible and visual warning to the driver of a possible collision.
- Collision Mitigation Braking System™– Working with the Forward Collision Warning, this feature provides brake pressure to slow the CR-V to reduce the force of impact—but also to give the driver a chance to react and stop the vehicle completely.
- Road Departure Mitigation System– When the CR-V begins to drift out of the road, this system will alert the driver and provide brake pressure to slow the vehicle’s road departure.
- Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow– This system allows the driver to set a cruising speed as well as a preferred distance from the vehicle ahead. It will then adapt to the flow of traffic, holding the safe space as a priority over the cruising speed.
- Lane Keeping Assist System– The sensors can detect when the vehicle is beginning to stray from the intended lane. The automatic brake pressure can reduce the pace of the vehicle straying to give the driver time to react and correct the vehicle’s direction.
- Blind Spot Monitor– This feature uses the rear sensors to spot vehicles approaching the blind spot to inform the driver, and lets them know when the coast is clear to change lanes.
These features will allow the car to give you warning alerts and even take control of various systems like the brakes or steering to keep you safe and out of harm’s way while driving.
