Honda Automobiles: Significantly Enhanced 2015 Honda CR-V Earns a 2015 TOP SAFETY PICK+ Rating from a Insurance Institute for Highway Safety

  • America’s bestselling SUV for a past decade1 raises a bar for 2015 with countless safety-performance updates
  • Available Honda Sensing™ apartment of modernized reserve and driver-assistive technologies combines camera and radar systems to assistance detect vehicles, pedestrians and alley markings
  • Honda’s prophesy is to revoke collisions, injuries and fatalities involving a  vehicles leveraging Honda Sensing™ record

The 2015 Honda CR-V (, Motor Trend Sport/Utility of a Year and a top-selling SUV in America for a past decade1, has perceived a 2015 TOP SAFETY PICK+ ratingfrom a Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) when versed with discretionary front pile-up prevention. This eminence includes a tip rating of GOOD in 5 IIHS pile-up exam modes including a GOOD measure in a Insurance Institute’s difficult tiny overlie frontal pile-up test. The 2015 TOP SAFETY PICK+ nomination is awarded to vehicles that also have an accessible front pile-up impediment complement that earns a higher or modernized rating from a Institute. The 2015 CR-V offers an accessible frontal pile-up impediment complement that earns a tip rating of superior.

A new Touring trim for a 2015 CR-V is a initial Honda to request a new Honda Sensing™ apartment of reserve and motorist assistive technologies that can assistance urge drivers’ situational awareness. This includes a initial focus of dual modernized driver-assistive technologies – Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) with Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) – to a Honda vehicle, and a initial focus of Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and LaneWatch™ to CR-V. These systems advantage from a adoption of new sensor alloy record that integrates a capabilities of a windshield-mounted monocular camera and front grille-mounted millimeter call radar complement to yield extended intuiting with a ability to brand and expect mixed collision scenarios, including ones involving a pedestrian. When a complement anticipates a collision, it can trigger warnings and, in some cases, trigger puncture braking.

“Honda’s prophesy to one day discharge traffic-related collisions, injuries and fatalities is during a heart of a joining to safety,” pronounced Art St. Cyr, clamp boss of vehicle operations during American Honda. “Our continued creation in active reserve and assistive technologies with a focus of Honda Sensingbrings Honda, a business and everybody else on a highway one step closer to this goal.”

The 2015 CR-V with Honda Sensing is on a leading-edge of this initiative. The 2015 CR-V also relates Honda’s next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) physique structure, that improves crashworthiness by a broader array of frontal tiny overlie and ambiguous pile-up scenarios. Overall, a CR-V physique has perceived some-more than 60 engineering changes to urge rigidity and collision performance, including a strengthened doorway frames and side frames underneath a front fenders. This extended side support pattern ties into a categorical support rail, producing an additional bucket trail for appetite absorption, and aims to urge reserve for both a occupants of a Honda car and a occupants of a other vehicles concerned in a collision.

Standard reserve apparatus on all Honda models embody Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) electronic fortitude control system, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Brake Assist, frontal airbags, side airbags, side-curtain airbags and a front chair pattern that can assistance revoke a astringency of neck damage in a eventuality of a back collision. Honda is also heading a attention in a deployment of rearview cameras, that are customary apparatus on all indication year 2015 Honda vehicles (having been offering on some-more than 95 percent of indication year 2014 vehicles).

The 2015 CR-V is made exclusively for a North American marketplace during Honda plants in a U.S., Canada and Mexico regulating domestic and globally sourced parts.
