When it comes to safety, the Honda CR-V is geared up to impress—both in terms of its safety features and its industry safety ratings.
In recognition of the CR-V’s outstanding performance in crash tests, this exceptional SUV has been given a 5-Star Safety Rating by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration,* and the CR-V has also been rated a 2016 Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety**—both the highest possible safety ratings a vehicle can receive from those organizations.
In terms of cutting-edge safety features, the CR-V’s offerings include:
Honda LaneWatch: This system comes standard in the CR-V EX, EX-L, and Touring trims, featuring a camera integrated into the passenger-side exterior mirror that displays live video feed of the adjacent lane, helping drivers change lanes and make right-hand turns more safely. For tips on how to use Honda LaneWatch, see the accompanying video.
Collision mitigation braking system: When an impending collision is detected and the driver doesn’t respond to warnings quickly enough, this available feature fully deploys the vehicle’s brakes to help reduce the impact of the crash or completely avoid the collision.
Adaptive cruise control: This feature, which comes standard in the CR-V Touring trim, goes into action to help maintain a safe and constant following distance between the CR-V and other vehicles.
SmartVent front side airbags: These smart airbags use speed and seat sensors to adjust airbag deployment—or deactivate the airbags altogether—according to the size of the front passenger.
Multi-angle rearview camera: This standard feature, offered in all of the CR-V models, offers a view of what’s behind the CR-V so drivers can operate in reverse with greater confidence.
Brake assist: This feature provides added braking power in emergency stopping situations, ensuring full braking might when it is needed most.

Automotive advancements have made onboard entertainment a must for today’s drivers. Answering the call, the CR-V delivers an array of amenities to boost in-vehicle entertainment and connectivity, such as:
Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and Bluetooth Streaming Audio: Offered standard in all of the CR-V models, Bluetooth connectivity gives drivers safe and convenient access to their smartphone content and functions while behind the wheel.
