Honda CR-V Driver Assistance Features

The future of safety technology is all about enhancing your awareness, warning you of danger, and even acting independently to keep you from harm. With the Honda CR-V, you get that peace of mind as standard across all trims thanks to the Honda Sensing CR-V package. It includes:

  • Lane Departure Warning (LDW): A forward-facing camera reads your position on the road and provides a warning if you start leaving your chosen lane without signaling.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS): Fail to react to the LDW and the Honda CR-V will automatically provide corrective steering pressure.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow: Automatically adjusts your cruising speed up and down to maintain a safe distance from the vehicle ahead.
  • Auto High-Beam Headlights: High beams cycle on and off automatically as cars approach and pass after dark.
  • Forward Collision Warning (FCW): Scans for potential frontal collisions and provides a warning if one is detected.
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™): Automatically applies braking power to avoid a collision or reduce its severity.
  • Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM): Reads common road edge markers and provides corrective steering pressure if you start to veer off.


Available driver assistance features include:

  • Blind Spot Monitoring System (BSI): Provides an icon on the appropriate side mirror when a vehicle enters your blind spot and alerts you if you attempt to change lanes before it leaves.
  • Cross Traffic Monitor: Scans to left and right as you reverse to warn you of vehicles approaching from the side.

    Honda CR-V Active Safety Features

    Active safety features are responsive for keeping the vehicle fully under your control and reducing the risk of accidents occurring. They’ll be at work through every twist and turn to ensure you enjoy precise control.


    Just a few Honda CR-V active safety features include:

    • Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control
    • Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)
    • Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD)
    • Brake Assist
    • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS):
    • LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL)
    • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera

    They do everything from providing added stopping power when an emergency braking situation is sensed to preventing understeer and oversteer as you head through corners. If you plan on heading off-road or driving through more challenging weather conditions, the Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ will help maintain dependable traction. It’s available with every 2020 Honda CR-V trim level.


    Honda CR-V Passive Safety Features

    The 2020 Honda CR-V earned a 5-star safety rating from the NHTSA* and a coveted Top Safety Pick award from the IIHS. If you want to understand why, you need to look to the celebrated Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure.


    It uses a network of connected structural elements that distributes crash-force energy to:

    • Reduce the amount of crash-energy transferred to the passenger compartment.
    • More evenly disperse the forces transferred to other vehicles.
    • Reduce the potential for frame misalignment within the opposing vehicle.
    • Improve vehicle performance in small overlap frontal collisions.

    It’s just one of the Honda CR-V’s passive safety features. They’re responsible for protecting you and your passengers from harm in the unlikely event of a collision occurring. Further Honda CR-V passive safety features include:

    • Advanced Front Airbags (i-SRS)
    • SmartVent® Front Side Airbags
    • Side Curtain Airbags with Rollover Sensor
    • Front 3-Point Seat Belts with Automatic Tensioning System
    • Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren (LATCH)
