Honda CR-V Earns Top Pedestrian Detection and Crash Prevention Ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) rated “Superior” for Pedestrian Detection and Crash Prevention
  • Previous IIHS testing rates CR-V with Honda Sensing “Superior” for Crash Avoidance and Mitigation

The Honda CR-V for the 2018 and 2019 model years has earned the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS) highest pedestrian detection and crash prevention rating of “Superior” based on new testing of CR-V’s available Honda Sensing® suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies, which includes the award-winning Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™). In previous tests by the IIHS, the CR-V’s CMBS was also rated “Superior” for Crash Avoidance and Mitigation.

“IIHS’ pedestrian crash avoidance tests can be unnerving to watch, since they are set up to look like an impending collision with a pedestrian. The tests highlight the need to consider the safety of all road users when designing advanced safety systems like those included in Honda Sensing®,” said Jay Joseph, assistant vice president of product planning for American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “We have sold nearly 1.8 million Honda vehicles equipped with Honda Sensing in the United States, underscoring our leadership and commitment to the widespread application of these important technologies.”

Beyond crash avoidance, the 2019 CR-V was engineered for top collision safety ratings, earning a “TOP SAFETY PICK” rating from the IIHS, when equipped with LED headlights and Honda Sensing®, and is expected to earn a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in its New Car Assessment Program (NCAP)1.

The Honda Sensing® suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies is standard equipment on EX and above trims of CR-V, accounting for 81% of U.S. CR-V sales in 2018. Honda Sensing® helps provide the driver with greater awareness of conditions around the vehicle, and in some cases can help drivers maintain lane position and, under certain conditions, is capable of slowing or even stopping the vehicle if a potential frontal collision has been detected. Comprising the Honda Sensing® suite of safety and driver assistive technologies in the 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 the course of two decades, since its launch in 1997, with cumulative sales of 4.7 million units. The CR-V was the very first Honda model to feature Honda Sensing® technology, in 2014. Since then, Honda Sensing® has been expanded to all U.S. Honda models. For model year 2019, more than 80 percent of Honda vehicles purchased in America are equipped with Honda Sensing® technology.

Statement by American Honda Regarding Electronic Power Steering Recall: 2017-2018 Honda Civic and CR-V

  • 54 vehicles will be recalled in the United States to replace the electronic power steering gear box, for free
  • No related crashes or injuries have been reported

American Honda will voluntarily recall 54 model year 2017-2018 Honda Civic and Honda CR-V vehicles in the United States to replace the electronic power steering (EPS) gear box, free of charge. Torque sensors within the affected gear boxes were manufactured incorrectly and could provide incorrect steering torque information if the steering wheel is turned fully to the end of its range of travel (multiple turns in one direction). This condition could cause the EPS to steer with more force than intended by the driver, increasing the risk of a crash. Honda has received no reports of crashes or injuries related to this issue.

Honda is announcing this recall to encourage owners of affected vehicles to take them to an authorized dealer as soon as possible for the free repair. Mailed notification to owners of affected vehicles will occur in early-November 2018. Owners of these models can also determine if their vehicles require repair now by visiting www.recalls.honda.com or by calling (888) 234-2138.
