Safety is a big factor for not only you and your family but also for Honda which is why the new 2015 honda CR-V now comes with Honda Sensing suite of safety which includes:

  • Forward collision warning
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System
  • Lane Keeping Assist System
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Lane Departure Warning

Forward collision warning will sense a possible collision and uses all braking abilities including ABS to slow or stop your car. It’s hard when you have passengers to always watch the road ahead and now with the confidence of this feature you can be at ease knowing that you and your passengers are safe at all times.

Collision Mitigation Braking System can sense a vehicle in front of you and sound a warning to alert you and tighten the front seat belts and automatically apply the brake pressure. Similar to the forward collision warning feature where it senses a possible crash but this feature also engages the seat belts which is great the keep you and your passengers secure and safe.

Lane Keeping Assist System is a feature used when you begin to depart the lane without a turn signal, alerts will flash and sound and you’re steering wheel will adjust to correct the lane drifting. It’s hard on long travels or late at night when visibility is low to maintain your lane, with this feature it keeps you safe and in the lane to prevent any accidents and all the while keep you and your passengers safe.

Honda LANEWATCH is a feature that uses a camera that is under the passenger’s side mirror. It can be activated when you turn on your turn signal or by pressing the button located to the left of the steering wheel. A view of the lane with nearly 4 times more area then the mirror alone displays on the center

Adaptive Cruise Control is similar to cruise control that we are all familiar with but with extra perks. You set your desired speed and interval behind the vehicle in front of you, the amount of distance you want to maintain, and then when the vehicle ahead changes speed the cruise control will adapt accordingly without you ever pushing a button.

Lane Departure Warning is another feature that keeps you safely on the road. This feature will alert you with sound and flashing when a lane departure is detected that is not intended or paired with a turn signal.

Always be aware of your surroundings with a multi-angle Rearview camera. As soon as you put the car in the reverse position the display screen shows the view from the camera which makes getting in and out of tight spaces easier than ever. This also allows you to fully see everything that comes behind your vehicle which gives you the peace of mind knowing that not only you but everyone else around you is safe.

You can never have too many air bags to protect you and your passengers and Honda understands that which is why the new 2015 Honda Cr-V comes equipped with:

  • Dual-stage front air bags:
  • Smartvent front side airbags
