Honda CR-V Active Safety Features
Active safety features are those systems in a vehicle that help the driver prevent a collision from happening. The 2017 Honda CR-V comes standard with seven unique active safety features on the LX trim and nine standard features on the Touring. Every 2017 Honda CR-V features Vehicle Stability Assist™ with Traction Control, which helps to correct oversteering or understeering by applying selective braking or reducing engine power.
Honda CR-V models also come equipped with an Anti-lock Brake System with Electronic Brake Distribution and Brake Assist. All three of these safety features help the driver bring the Honda CR-V to a stop and retain control during an emergency braking situation.
The last three Honda CR-V active safety features that are standard across all trims are the Tire Pressure Monitoring System, LED Daytime Running Lights, and Multi-Angle Rearview Camera. Even though to some, these features may seem mundane, properly inflated tires help to improve traction and control, daytime running lights make your vehicle more visible to other motorists, and a rearview camera can help you safely back in or out of a parking spot.
Honda CR-V Passive Safety Features
Passive safety features are designed to improve passenger protection and reduce the risk of injury when a collision has occurred. The 2017 Honda CR-V comes with nine of these safety features standard across all trim levels.
To start, the Honda CR-V features an Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ body structure, which uses specially designed construction components to improve crash compatibility during a frontal impact. You also get dual-stage multiple threshold front airbags, plus SmartVent® front side airbags and side curtain airbags with a sophisticated rollover sensor.
Other passive safety features include Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) for all second-row seats, child-proof rear door locks, a driver’s and front passenger’s seat belt reminder, and 3-point seat belts for all seating positions with an Automatic Tensioning System installed in the first row. This helps keep front-seat passengers pressed firmly against the seatbacks in the event of a crash.
