High-tech Safety

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.

Convenience-boosting Tech

The CR-V also boasts various high-tech features that make the motoring experience more convenient, including:

  • SMS text message function: This standard feature allows drivers to more easily and safely send and receive messages inside the CR-V.
  • HomeLink Remote System: A standard feature in the CR-V Touring model, this system can be synchronized with remote-controlled devices in and around the driver’s home, including home security systems, garage doors, and home lighting systems.
  • Auto-dimming rearview mirror: This handy feature, standard in the EX-L and Touring trims, instantly darkens the rearview mirror when the lights from another vehicle shine into it, protecting the driver from being blinded and also eliminating the distracting need to manually adjust the mirror.
  • Power tailgate: When your hands are full, the CR-V Touring trim’s standard power tailgate provides easy and quick access to the 70.9 cubic feet of cargo space found in this versatile SUV.
  • 12-volt power outlets: Offered standard in the CR-V’s front and center consoles, 12-volt power outlets let passengers keep their devices charged up while out on the road.

State-of-the-art Entertainment Features

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.
  • HondaLink Next Generation: This feature is offered in the EX, EX-L, and Touring models, connecting drivers and passengers to an assortment of online content through an application-based platform. Features include four downloadable apps that offer access to 3D navigation, Aha content, HondaLink Traffic, local weather, restaurant recommendations, and more.
  • 7-inch Display Audio electrostatic touchscreen: This feature includes high-resolution WVGA and comes standard in the EX, EX-L, and Touring trims, enabling access to music, podcasts, and more.
  • Honda satellite-linked navigation system: This feature is available in the EX-L trim and comes standard in the Touring trim, providing voice-recognition technology as well as access to HD Radio and Honda HD Digital Traffic.

Competitor Comparison

When matched up with its competitors, the Honda CR-V comes out victorious in various areas, including technology offerings.

When compared with the Nissan Rogue, the CR-V offers various high-tech amenities the Rogue doesn’t, including adaptive cruise control and two-driver memory settings for the driver’s seat.

Contrasted with the Toyota RAV4, the CR-V offers features like HondaLink Assist and one-touch power windows, which the RAV4 does not include.

The CR-V also outdoes the Ford Escape. In the event of an impending collision, for instance, the Ford Escape does not offer collision mitigating brakes that brake automatically to avoid a crash like the CR-V does.
