Driving is often part of your everyday routine, but traffic and weather conditions can create obstacles, which is where Honda CR-V safety features can help. This midsize SUV is maneuverable, smooth-riding, and fuel-efficient, especially if you choose one of the hybrid trims. Here’s a closer look at the impressive suite of Honda driver-assistive technology.
This SUV comes with the Honda Sensing Suite standard. This collection of systems uses sensors embedded in the vehicle to monitor the road and your car's relative position to provide alerts in dangerous situations. For example, your SUV can warn you if it thinks a collision is imminent and provide braking assistance, lane-keeping assistance to warn you of drifting, road-departure mitigation, blind-spot monitoring, and adaptive cruise control. Auto-beam headlights dim and brighten automatically in response to your circumstances.
Other 2023 Honda CR-V safety features include a multi-angle rearview camera to help you park, a tire-pressure monitor to help keep your tires' psi at the correct levels, and an anti-lock braking system to improve your control if you have to brake hard on slick surfaces.
As useful as all these tools are, they aren't a substitute for attentive driving, so stay alert on the roads and try to keep three seconds of distance between you and other cars.
In addition to Honda safety technology, the vehicle's very design is meant to keep you safe. An Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure, airbags, three-point seatbelts, a Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) setup, and rear-seat reminders are all baked into its DNA. The vehicle has high clearance to help you overcome obstacles. Meanwhile, the available AWD system is useful for tackling rain- and snow-slick roads or uneven terrain.
According to the IIHS, this vehicle has "Superior" front-crash prevention (vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian). It's also got high scores on roof strength and head restraints and seats. As such, this organization named it a Top Safety Pick+ for 2022.1 To learn more about what this safety rating means, talk to our team.
Maintaining your vehicle so that it operates at its best is also important for keeping you and your family as safe as possible. When you buy this SUV as a new or certified pre-owned vehicle, it comes with special warranties that will cover eligible repairs. However, preventive maintenance is just as crucial. Oil changes lower the risk of engine overheating, just like tire rotations and balancing ease the chances of uneven wear that can cause premature blowouts. Therefore, it’s key to visit our service department in line with your owner's manual recommendations.
You should also stop by if your Honda dashboard is displaying new warnings. These could tell you something is wrong with how the SUV runs or that one of your driver-assistance features is not currently operating. In general, "bad" symbols are red, yellow, or orange and can have an exclamation mark or wrench beside them. If you have any questions about the meaning of a particular sign, contact our service team.
If you opt to go for one of our new Honda CR-V lease deals, you'll only drive the vehicle when it's young. Among the benefits of this is that the SUV is unlikely to need major repairs during that time.
While you might have driven another vehicle with driver-assistance features, they are not always the same from maker to maker or model to model. Therefore, visit our dealership in Highland Park, IL, to see what the new Honda CR-V for sale has going on for yourself. A test drive on the roads near Chicago, IL, allows you to accustom yourself to its driver-assistance technology and ask us any questions about how the system works. We can also explain the differences in safety technology between it and an even more competitively priced pre-owned Honda CR-V.
Many Honda vehicles offer Honda collision avoidance, braking assistance, blind-spot monitoring, road-departure warnings, adaptive cruise control, and more. Vehicle stability assistance with traction control is also very valuable for drivers. Some features help you look after your car so that malfunctions that might jeopardize your safety are less likely. For example, a tire-pressure monitor can lower the risk of flats or blowouts.
Yes. Much of the technology you were used to from this SUV was tweaked to provide smoother help, including Collision Mitigation Braking, Traffic Jam Assist, and Adaptive Cruise Control. Blind-Spot Warning is now standard for the first time. More airbags were added, and the car's body design was also slightly altered for better crash deflection. Learn more by visiting our dealership and talking to our team.
It is standard or available on all Honda vehicles for the 2023 lineup. It comes automatically with the 2023 CR-V, for example, although you can get a few extra driver-assistance technologies on the upper trim levels. To get a firsthand feel of the Honda Sensing Suite, take a test drive to see how it helps you on the road and while parking.
