- Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) rated “Superior” for Pedestrian Detection and Crash Prevention
- Previous IIHS contrast rates CR-V with Honda Sensing “Superior” for Crash Avoidance and Mitigation
The Honda CR-V for a 2018 and 2019 indication years has warranted a Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS) tip walking showing and pile-up impediment rating of “Superior” formed on new contrast of CR-V’s accessible Honda Sensing® apartment of reserve and driver-assistive technologies, that includes a award-winning Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™). In prior tests by a IIHS, a CR-V’s CMBS was also rated “Superior” for Crash Avoidance and Mitigation.
“IIHS’ walking pile-up deterrence tests can be unnerving to watch, given they are set adult to demeanour like an imminent collision with a pedestrian. The tests prominence a need to cruise a reserve of all highway users when conceptualizing modernized reserve systems like those enclosed in Honda Sensing®,” pronounced Jay Joseph, partner clamp boss of product formulation for American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “We have sole scarcely 1.8 million Honda vehicles versed with Honda Sensing in a United States, underscoring a care and joining to a widespread focus of these critical technologies.”
Beyond pile-up avoidance, a 2019 CR-V was engineered for tip collision reserve ratings, earning a “TOP SAFETY PICK” rating from a IIHS, when versed with LED headlights and Honda Sensing®, and is approaching to acquire a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in a New Car Assessment Program (NCAP)1.
The Honda Sensing® apartment of reserve and driver-assistive technologies is customary apparatus on EX and above trims of CR-V, accounting for 81% of U.S. CR-V sales in 2018. Honda Sensing® helps yield a motorist with larger recognition of conditions around a vehicle, and in some cases can assistance drivers say line position and, underneath certain conditions, is able of negligence or even interlude a car if a intensity frontal collision has been detected. Comprising a Honda Sensing® apartment of reserve and motorist assistive technologies in a 2019 CR-V are Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) with Forward Collision Warning; Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) incorporating Lane Departure Warning; Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS); and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).
The CR-V has been America’s best-selling crossover over a march of dual decades, given a launch in 1997, with accumulative sales of 4.7 million units. The CR-V was a really initial Honda indication to underline Honda Sensing® technology, in 2014. Since then, Honda Sensing® has been stretched to all U.S. Honda models. For indication year 2019, some-more than 80 percent of Honda vehicles purchased in America are versed with Honda Sensing® technology.
Honda offers a full line of reliable, fuel-efficient and fun-to-drive vehicles with modernized reserve technologies sole by some-more than 1,000 eccentric U.S. Honda dealers. The Honda lineup includes a Fit, Civic, Insight, Accord and Clarity array newcomer cars, along with a HR-V, CR-V, Passport and Pilot sport/utility vehicles, a Ridgeline pickup and a Odyssey minivan. Honda has been producing automobiles in America for some-more than 35 years and now operates 19 vital production comforts in North America. In 2018, about 65 percent of all Honda vehicles sole in a U.S. were done in America, regulating domestic and globally sourced parts.
