2019 Honda CR-V

Passive Safety

Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure

The highly innovative, next generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure is engineered to help disperse frontal impact energy to enhance occupant protection, while more effectively controlling it in severe collisions to help prevent intrusion into the passenger cabin. 

Child safety

The CR-V features childproof rear door locks as well rear seat Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH), which give you a simple and convenient method to install compatible child safety seats without using the vehicle’s seat belt system.

HondaLink™ Assist Automatic Emergency Response System

The HondaLink Assist Automatic Emergency Response System helps you get the help you need when you need it most. If the airbags deploy, your Display Audio System is engineered to automatically attempt to put you on a call with an operator who will forward your location to first responders if needed. It works with any compatible Bluetooth paired phone as long as it has reception, does not require a subscription and gives you peace of mind while you’re on the road.

Seat belt safety

The CR-V helps prepare you for the unexpected with 3-point height-adjustable front seat belts with an automatic tensioning system 3-point rear seat belts.

Six standard airbags

The cabin of the CR-V contains six standard airbags. It features an i-SRS front airbag system as well as side curtain airbags with a rollover sensor system designed to deploy if a rollover is detected. Plus, it has SmartVent™ side airbags, which are designed to deploy in a manner that mitigates the risk of injury to out-of-position or smaller occupants. 

Pedestrian safety

Innovative pedestrian safety features include an energy-absorbing hood and front fenders and deformable wiper pivots. 

Active Safety

Controlled braking

To assist with safe stopping, the 4 wheel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) is designed to help you maintain control under hard braking conditions, while Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) helps to optimize braking power based on weight distribution inside the vehicle. In addition, Brake Assist is engineered to help improve braking performance by applying full brake pressure when a panic stop is detected. 

Tire Pressure Monitoring System

To promote enhanced safety and fuel efficiency the Tire Pressure Monitoring System continually checks the air pressure in each tire. If pressure drops in any tire, the driver receives a dashboard alert. 

Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA*) with Traction Control

Vehicle Stability Assist* is designed to sense and help correct oversteer and understeer scenarios to enhance handling and cornering stability, while Traction Control is designed to minimize wheel spin when accelerating on loose or slippery surfaces, helping to inspire greater driver confidence. 

Hill Start Assist

If you take your foot off the brake when stopped on an incline, this feature is engineered to temporarily maintain brake pressure to help prevent your CR-V from starting to roll backwards.

Auto high beam

The available auto high beam feature automatically changes the low beam headlights in certain circumstances to help improve your vision.
