2019 Honda CR-V: Safety Features


The 2019 Honda CR-V has been named an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Top Safety Pick, earning the highest marks possible in all crash tests and front crash mitigation checks. Not surprisingly, the compact SUV comes with a host of safety features that help protect everyone inside the cabin.


Standard Safety Systems in the Event of a Crash

Even with the advent of driver-assist features that help prevent collisions, safety systems that have been around longer remain as important as ever. Seatbelts, airbags and similar systems aren’t as exciting as the latest in collision-mitigation technology, but these are the systems that help keep everyone inside a vehicle as protected as possible when there is a crash. Without them, many crashes would be (and used to be) fatal.

Naturally, the 2019 CR-V comes with a full array of standard safety systems that you’d expect to see on a new Honda vehicle. On every trim, there’s:

  • Anti-lock brakes
  • Front-impact and side-impact airbags for the front seats
  • Overhead airbags for both rows of seats
  • Stability control
  • A security system (to deter theft)

Honda Sensing to Avoid Potential Crashes

Even with solid safety systems in place for potential crashes, the best way to remain safe is certainly avoiding a crash in the first place. Honda Sensing, which is an advanced suite of driver-assist features, does just this.

Honda Sensing is one of the most advanced standard driver-assist suites. It’s found on the 2019 Honda CR-V EX, EX-L and Touring, and includes a:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System, which helps brake to avoid forward collisions
  • Adaptive Cruise Control including Low-Speed Follow, which keeps a safe following distance
  • Lane Keeping Assist System, which helps keep the compact SUV in its proper lane
  • Road Departure Mitigation System, which corrects if the vehicle starts to leave the road

In addition to these standard aids, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are also available.
