The New Honda CR-V comes with standard safety equipment that includes Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) with Traction Control which is designed to assist the driver in maintaining control during cornering, acceleration and sudden manoeuvres by applying braking to the right- or left-hand wheels as necessary and modulating the engine torque output as required to retain control.
You can opt for the (ADAS Advance Safety Pack) from the SR grade onwards which comprises
Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
LKAS uses a camera to detect the car deviating from a traffic lane and provides steering torque when necessary, thereby enhancing safety.
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
ACC allows you to choose both your speed and distance from the vehicle ahead. If this falls below the set level, the system instantly decelerates the vehicle. Where quicker deceleration is required ACC will alert the driver to apply the brakes.
Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS)
CMBS monitors the following distance and closing rate between your vehicle and the car directly in front of it, warning the driver when a collision is likely and helping reduce impact speed when a collision becomes unavoidable.Published 26 June 2013
