Just a few top safety features include:
Active safety features are responsible for avoiding collisions and other accidents in the first place, and the latest Honda CR-V provides a strong selection as standard.
Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control: Uses multiple sensors to measure performance and adjust drive dynamics to maintain reliable stability and traction through every corner and across every surface.
Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS): Even when you slam on the brakes, they’ll never lock out and leave you out of control.
Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD): When you need to slow down, braking energy is applied intelligently across all four wheels to provide stopping power without sacrificing control.
Brake Assist: Senses emergency braking scenarios and applies more pressure to bring your speed down faster.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS): Reduces your risk of blowouts or impaired handling by letting you know when there’s too much or too little air in your tires.
Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: Cycles between Normal, Wide, and Top-down viewing modes to provide a clear view of what’s behind your vehicle.
LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL): Provides clearer illumination during the day to increase your visibility to other road users and avoid accidents.
If you expect to tackle off-road trails or drive through adverse weather, equip Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ for dependable traction.
The Honda CR-V uses an Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) Body Structure to distribute crash-force energy away from the passenger compartment, plus a full range of further passive safety features to keep you from harm.

The Honda CR-V provides Honda Sensing driver assistance features as standard with all models but the entry-level LX. Using advanced sensors and radar, they represent the latest in safety technology, with features including:
Forward Collision Warning (FCW): The Honda CR-V scans ahead for potential obstructions and other vehicles, then provides an alert when you get close to help avoid frontal collisions.
Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™): If you don’t react in time, the brakes will be applied automatically to reduce the severity of a frontal collision or avoid it entirely.
Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM): Your Honda CR-V reads common road markings and lets you know if you start to leave the road.
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow: Advanced radar technology gauges your distance from the vehicle ahead and adjusts your cruising speed up or down to maintain a safe distance.
Lane Departure Warning (LDW): Deviate from your chosen lane without signaling and the Honda CR-V will provide a warning.
Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS): Fail to heed the Lane Keeping Assist System and the Honda CR-V will automatically apply corrective steering pressure to keep you between the lines.
Further available driver assistance features include:
Auto High-Beam Headlights: High-beams cycle on and off as vehicles approach and pass at night.
