2017 Honda CR-V Safety Features

  • 2017 Honda CR-V Family

    The 2017 Honda CR-V safety features make it one of the smartest choices for Detroit families. More than just airbags and seat belts, a modern crossover includes a host of features designed to protect passengers, avoid accidents, and just generally make a driver’s life easier behind the wheel. Read on to discover the active, passive, and driver-assist features that make the CR-V one of our top family cars.

Active Safety Features

The 2017 Honda CR-V safety features include a range of active technologies designed to make you more aware of the vehicles around you and keep you in control of the vehicle.


2017 Honda CR-V

Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA): This stability and traction control system is able to detect when one or more of the CR-V’s wheels have lost their grip on the pavement and adjust engine performance and brakes to account for oversteer, understeer, or lost traction.

2017 Honda CR-V Braking System

Advanced Braking: Anti-lock braking automatically pumps the brakes during hard braking to prevent wheel lock-up, while brake assist can apply maximum brake force during emergency braking, and electronic brake distribution ensures each of your wheels receives the right amount of brake force to slow you’re your vehicle evenly.

2017 Honda CR-V

Tire Pressure Monitoring System: If your tires are not properly inflated, a vehicle can behave erratically, even dangerously. This standard safety feature alerts you to any under-inflated tires so you can inspect them for leaks and top them off if needed.

2017 Honda CR-V Rearview Camera

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: Back up with the peace of mind that comes with knowing your path is clear with the CR-V’s standard multi-angle rearview camera, complete with guidelines. See what’s behind the crossover with top-down, wide-angle, and standard views.

2017 Honda CR-V Collision Mitigation Braking System

Collision Mitigation Braking: On this available safety feature, radar and camera sensors work together to detect how close the CR-V is to other vehicles. If it senses a possible collision, this Honda Sensing feature warns the driver and can automatically apply the brakes to help avoid the collision.

2017 Honda CR-V Road Departure Mitigation System

Road Departure Mitigation: Part of the Honda Sensing suite of safety technologies, this available feature tracks markings on the side of the road with a camera. If it senses you are leaving the pavement unintentionally, it can adjust vehicle performance to keep you on stable ground.

Passive Safety Features

While no one wants to be in an accident, no one wants to drive a vehicle that’s not prepared to protect its passengers. These passive safety features are standard on the CR-V and are designed to protect occupants in the event of an accident:

  • Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) Body Structure: Safety is a top concern for Honda, and it starts with the frame. The 2017 CR-V is engineered with passenger protection in mind from the very beginning, with a frame designed around reinforcing common collision areas and strategically placed crumple zones to redirect crash energy away from passengers.
  • Advanced Airbags: Smart engineering by Honda safety specialists has led to the development of airbags designed to deploy with just the right amount of force. A side curtain airbag with rollover sensor protects front and rear passengers, and front passengers also have SmartVent side airbags and dual-stage multi-threshold front airbags.
  • Three-Point Seat Belts: Keeping passengers from bouncing around the cabin is essential in an accident, and each of the CR-V’s five seats includes a three-point seat belt to secure its passenger. Front seats also feature automatic tensioners and a seat belt reminder.
  • LATCH Safety Seat Anchors: LATCH stands for Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren, and it’s a safe, secure system for anchoring child safety seats. Each of the CR-V’s three rear seats includes a LATCH anchor and tether to secure a car seat.

Driver-Assist Technologies

If the active and passive 2017 Honda CR-V safety features sounded familiar, that’s because many are industry standards that help protect passengers and prevent accidents. These advanced driver-assist technologies offer a helping hand to the driver, alerting of potential collisions and the location of other vehicles.


2017 Honda CR-V Lane Keeping Assist

Lane Keeping Assist: If the available front-mounted camera system senses the pavement markings are shifting, it alerts the driver of the potential drift and can give the wheel a nudge to keep the CR-V centered and fight driver fatigue.

2017 Honda CR-V Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control: Radar sensors on the front of the CR-V allow this available safety feature to track the speed of other vehicles and adjust cruising speeds automatically. Enjoy the drive with the help of cruise control, even in light traffic.

2017 Honda CR-V Blind Spot Monitoring System

Blind Spot Monitoring System: Rear radar sensors allow this available safety feature to detect when a vehicle could be in your blind spot, indicating with a light on the dash and issuing a warning if you signal a lane change. It can also detect rear cross-traffic when backing up.

2017 Honda CR-V LED Headlights

Auto High-Beam Headlights: Never forget to turn off your high-beam headlights with the CR-V’s automatic high-beams; these available headlights ensure the road is illuminated ahead and that your headlights are a pleasant level of brightness for other drivers.
