How Safe is the 2023 Honda CR-V?
2023 Honda CR-V Safety Features
Whether you’re taking an adventure off the beaten path or driving through the daily grind in the city, one thing is for certain: Safety is critical. You need a vehicle that helps you feel secure when you’re driving, like it has your back, and that’s especially important if you’re taking your entire family along the way. Crossover SUVs are popular with families. The Honda CR-V is one such crossover SUV that many have been climbing aboard for years. Now, with the latest specs announced, we wanted to take a look at some of the 2023 Honda CR-V safety features that’ll work to earn your confidence.
Active Safety Technology
We’ve come a long way since the advent of the most basic safety features, like seatbelts and airbags. These days, technology has advanced so much that it can lend a hand to keep you secure as well.
The 2023 Honda CR-V is the sixth generation of this compact crossover SUV. It’s offered in four different trims: EX, EX-L, Sport, and Sport Touring – the latter two being hybrid models. Standard on every model is the Honda Sensing® suite of smart safety technologies. These include such features as Adaptive Cruise Control, Traffic Sign Recognition, the Lane Keeping Assist System, the Collision Mitigation Braking System™, and the Road Departure Mitigation System.
This latest version of Honda Sensing offers a new wide-angle camera that delivers a 90-degree field of view to help with collision prevention. Additionally, Blind Spot Information (BSI) now comes standard. This is a crucial tool to help identify vehicles that are in your blind spot to help keep you from changing lanes while another vehicle is approaching.
Of course, none of this technology is a replacement for safe driving, so be sure to practice safe driving habits.
Construction with Safety in Mind
The actual architecture of the 2023 CR-V also promotes a safe driving environment. A new upper A-pillar, side frame, and lower firewall structure were built with the idea of routing crash energy around the cabin. The vehicle, in general, was designed with the goal of achieving top safety ratings in crash tests, which have yet to be conducted or announced.
