Safety Features of the 2018 Honda CR-V

  • 2019 Honda CR-V Safety

    Most drivers in New England already know that the 2018 Honda CR-V is a fun-to-drive, fuel-efficient compact SUV that comes full to bursting with useful technology, but they may not be aware that it’s also one of the safest vehicles in its class! In fact, buyers can expect to find top-tier active and passive safety features even on this SUV’s baseline LX model. What’s more, those who explore the CR-V’s upgraded trim levels will encounter a host of powerful driver aids that will make every ride more comfortable and enjoyable.

Dependable, Responsive, and Secure: Active and Passive Standard Features

Honda has long been one of the leading names in safety, and even without advanced upgrades, the CR-V is sure to impress. The following active and passive safety features come standard on every CR-V trim.

Vehicle Stability Assist: VSA with traction control allows the CR-V to adjust the speed at which its inside wheels rotate when you’re moving around a curve or taking a sharp turn. You can enjoy even more control over your movements by upgrading with Real Time All-Wheel Drive, available as an upgrade on every CR-V trim level.

2018 Honda CR-V Rearview Camera

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: Wide-angle, normal, and top-down viewing modes will let you move through crowded parking lots like a fish moves through the sea. Parking guidelines come standard on the baseline LX trim level, and on the EX and up, you’ll receive dynamic guidelines that move as you adjust the steering wheel

2018 Honda CR-V LED Headlight

LED Daytime Running Lights: These LED daytime running lights ensure that you enjoy superior visibility at all hours of the day. What’s more, auto high-beam headlights come standard on the EX, EX-L, and Touring trims. These headlights will adjust their brightness automatically when they detect an oncoming vehicle.

Advanced Compatibility Engineering: Every CR-V has been built with ACE body structure, and that means that the CR-V is uniquely well equipped to stand up to collisions. ACE directs dangerous forces away from those seated in the cabin by collapsing in predesignated areas and remaining rigid in others.

Honda Sensing and Driver-Assistance Technologies

The time you spend behind the wheel of the CR-V should be as relaxing and as comfortable as possible! This, at least, was the sentiment of Honda’s engineers and designers, who’ve equipped this year’s CR-V with many of the most advanced, AI-powered safety systems available today.

2018 Honda CR-V Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control: The Honda Sensing package’s adaptive cruise control function offers all the benefits of traditional cruise control, but with none of its tiresome drawbacks! By utilizing ACC’s low-speed follow feature, you’ll be able to program your CR-V to adjust its cruising speed in relation to the presence of traffic.

2018 Honda CR-V Lane Keeping Assist

Lane Keeping Assistance: The Honda Sensing safety suite includes a Lane Departure Warning, a Lane Keeping Assist System, and Road Departure Mitigation technology. The first of these alerts you whenever you’re at risk of changing lanes without a turn signal. The latter two features can automatically center you in your lane if they detect you’re at risk.

2018 Honda CR-V Collision Mitigation Braking System

Collision Mitigation Braking System: The CR-V’s Forward Collision Warning and Collision Mitigation Braking System provide an extra line of defense against surprises on the road. If your CR-V detects an obstacle in your path, you’ll be warned of the danger immediately. If it determines that you’re on track to crash, it will apply your brakes to prevent the collision.

2018 Honda CR-V Blind Spot Monitor

Blind Spot Monitoring System: Drivers who upgrade to the EX trim or higher will benefit from the inclusion of a blind spot monitoring system and a rear cross traffic monitor. Both systems use audiovisual cues to make sure you’re aware of vehicles that might be hard to see from the driver’s seat, so you’ll be able to keep your eyes on the road more often.
