For its impressive performance in crash tests, the Honda CR-V has earned a 5-Star Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration* and has also been named a 2016 Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety**—both the highest safety ratings those entities offer.
Safety is bolstered onboard the Honda CR-V by various high-tech safety and driver-assist features that include:
Multi-angle rearview camera, which comes standard and provides a clear view of what’s behind the CR-V to help drivers back up safely.
Brake assist, which provides added braking power in emergency stopping situations.
SmartVent front side airbags, which employ speed and seat sensors to adjust passenger airbag deployment or shut off the airbags entirely, depending on the size of the passenger.
Honda LaneWatch, which comes standard in the CR-V EX, EX-L, and Touring trims. This feature utilizes a camera that is integrated into the passenger-side exterior mirror to show drivers what’s going on in the adjacent lane. For tips on using Honda LaneWatch, see the accompanying video.
Collision mitigation braking system, which is an available feature. This system fully deploys the CR-V’s brakes when an impending crash is detected and the driver doesn’t respond to warnings quickly enough.
Adaptive cruise control, which comes standard in the Touring trim and automatically maintains a constant following distance between the CR-V and vehicles ahead of it.
A lineup of amenities is also offered in the CR-V to enhance entertainment and connectivity out on the road.
A 7-inch Display Audio electrostatic touchscreen with high-resolution WVGA is offered standard in the EX, EX-L, and Touring trims, providing convenient access to music, podcasts, and more. Various other features, which come standard in all the CR-V models, further boost in-car entertainment, including Pandora compatibility, MP3 and Windows Media Audio playback capability, up to two USB audio interfaces, a radio data system, and speed-sensitive volume control. SiriusXM Radio further comes standard in the EX-L and Touring models.
Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and Bluetooth Streaming Audio come standard in all the CR-V trims, providing safe and convenient access to smartphone content and functions.
HondaLink Next Generation, offered in the CR-V EX, EX-L, and Touring models, connects drivers and passengers to a variety of online content through an application-based platform. This feature includes four downloadable apps that provide access to Aha content, 3D navigation, HondaLink Traffic, restaurant recommendations, local weather, and more.
The Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System is an available feature in the CR-V EX-L trim and is a standard amenity in the Touring model, offering voice recognition, HD Radio, and Honda HD Digital Traffic.
