The CR-V features a full range of Honda's advanced safety technologies for enhanced peace of mind. Active safety technologies like VSA are designed to help the driver avert a collision, while passive safety technologies like airbags are designed to help mitigate injuries in the event of a collision. The Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure is a Honda-exclusive passive safety technology that uses a network of connected structural elements to help distribute frontal crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle. It is designed to enhance occupant protection while mitigating damage to other vehicles.
Dual-stage front airbags, side-curtain airbags with rollover sensor, and front side airbags with passenger-side Occupant Position Detection System.
VSA helps mitigate oversteering and understeering during cornering and helps control acceleration and braking when road conditions could cause uneven left-right traction. Motion Adaptive EPS also operates in coordination with VSA to enhance vehicle control.
