Car-buyers looking for an SUV that delivers unparalleled safety for its occupants are sure to love the 2012 Honda CR-V, available now at Middletown Honda. Having been awarded a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating in government crash safety testing (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), and coming equipped with a suite of innovative safety technologies, the new CR-V is a smart purchase for families searching for industry-leading crash protection and prevention.

The CR-V Showcases Honda’s Advanced Safety Features

While ultimately it’s defensive and attentive driving that’s the best plan for a safe on-the-road experience, Honda’s 2012 CR-V is built with state-of-the-art safety technologies that can make safe driving practices even easier. One example is Honda’s Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) with Motion-Adaptive Electronic Power Steering (EPS). If the vehicle detects an oversteer or understeer condition based on its view of the road, VSA can apply brakes to individual wheels to help the vehicle adjust to the correct driving path. Stability assist also features traction control that can prevent extra wheelspin during acceleration.

Honda’s Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is another passive safety system that’s always working to keep you protected. Driving with under- or over-inflated tires can be incredibly unsafe, as it makes them more susceptible to poor braking, traction, and puncturing. The CR-V’s active TPMS alerts drivers when their tires become dangerously low in pressure.

Should you actually find yourself in a vehicle collision, you can rest assured that your CR-V is built tough. Utilizing Honda’s exclusive Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure, the 2012 CR-V is designed to distribute kinetic energy away from and around the vehicle cabin in head-on collisions. More than just built-in crush zones, the structure of the entire frame is built to help reduce forces for all vehicles involved in a crash.
