2018 Honda CR-V Safety Ratings

A well-rounded SUV like the Honda CR-V appeals to everyone from commuters to families. It’s a dependable ride that offers reliable performance through any conditions. However, when it comes to your driving experience, nothing is more important than safety.

For drivers in Bedford, Bloomington, and Ellettsville, it’s important to feel secure in your SUV. This rundown of the 2018 Honda CR-V safety ratings from Andy Mohr Honda will give you further insight into how you’re protected in this popular SUV.

Honda CR-V Safety Ratings

Crash tests and safety ratings are a great way to measure which cars will keep you protected. They offer insight into which car gives you the best chance of walking away from an accident.

Each year, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) does its safety ratings for cars. This branch of the Department of Transportation hands out ratings ranging from one to five stars. The 2018 Honda CR-V has earned a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the NHTSA, as well as 5-Star Ratings specifically for front and side crash tests.1

Honda CR-V Driver Assistance

The 2018 Honda CR-V uses technology to make driving easier and safer. The Honda Sensing® system brings together multiple driver assistance technologies that keep you aware of what’s around you and what path you’re on.

It includes a Collision Mitigation Braking System™ that can bring the car to a complete stop when it detects an object in your path. Another feature that can slow down or stop the CR-V is Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow. It keeps you a safe distance from the car in front of you and can slow the CR-V down as traffic gets heavier.

Two features that work together to keep you on course are the Road Departure Mitigation System and Lane Keeping Assist System. These two systems send alerts if you start drifting, then adjust power and apply braking if necessary to steer you back into your lane.

You’ll have cameras watching out for you, too. The Blind Spot Information System uses cameras on your side to let you see when it’s safe to change lanes, and the Multi-Angle Rearview Camera lets you see what’s behind you when backing up.

Safety Built In

Driver assistance technologies and safety features are great, but it helps to know that safety is built into the design of your car. The 2018 Honda CR-V was built to protect passengers with six standard airbags.

It’s also designed to help other drivers see you. LED Daytime Running Lights are standard to give you and your car added visibility. The CR-V also makes sure you’re seen from behind. It takes brake lights to the next level with a roofline spoiler with an integrated brake light. You can increase visibility even more with available fog lights and LED headlights.
