A Look at the Honda CR-V Safety Features

When exploring a Honda, you can expect topflight safety features. That is because virtually all Honda vehicles come standard with the Honda SensingÒ suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies. This suite includes features such as:

  • Lane Keeping Assist System
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow
  • Available Blind Spot Information System with cross traffic monitor
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™

Also included in this package are Auto High-Beam Headlights. These will come in handy on those nighttime drives, not having to worry about turning your high beams on and off. This system will take care of that leg work, sensing when there are oncoming vehicles present and turning your high beams on and off accordingly.

The 2021 CR-V comes with a Forward Collision Warning, as well. Again, utilizing sensors, this system will monitor the environment surrounding the front of your vehicle and warn you should any obstructions present themselves.

Another important feature to mention is the multi-angle rearview camera. If you’re planning on heading into Philly at all, you’ll definitely want this feature. When shifting your CR-V into reverse, this feature will kick on automatically, showing you a camera view of what is going on directly behind your SUV, helping you maneuver out of those tight parking spots.

What Tech Is Featured in the 2021 Honda CR-V?

While we’re on the subject of impressive technology, it’s important to check out some of the technological amenities you’ll have at your disposal. In terms of multimedia, you will find the CR-V is stocked with a 5-inch display multimedia system. This system comes with BluetoothÒ and PandoraÒ compatibility. Pair this with the 160-watt audio system, and you’ll be able to listen to your favorite playlists with true tone.

While not standard, the CR-V also makes Apple CarPlayÒ and Android Autoä functionalities available. Adding these to your CR-V will arm you with yet another way to connect your mobile device to your SUV, providing constant connection on the go.

If you choose to add these features, you might also want to consider adding the available wireless phone charger. As you use your phone on the go, sending texts and listening to music, your battery will no doubt deplete. The wireless charger will allow you to restore your phone battery by simply placing your device on the charging station—while your BluetoothÒ features remain intact.

You’ll also enjoy the climate control system at work within the 2021 CR-V. The system is automatic, so you won’t have to worry about finding that ideal temperature. No matter the season, the automatic climate control in the CR-V will keep you comfortable on the go. In some trims, you could also opt to add a dual-zone automatic climate control system. This will arm your front passenger with the opportunity to customize their temperature as well.

Other technology features include:

  • Power door and tailgate locks
  • One-touch turn indicators
  • Sliding sun visors
  • Map lights

Seating and Cargo in the CR-V

As an SUV, the CR-V, of course, features great space and dimensions. Just how much space? Well, the Honda SUV comes ready to seat up to five passengers with 105.9 cubic feet of passenger volume. This space will enable you and your passengers to reach your next destination not only in style but also in comfort.

Also contributing to the interior comfort is the driver’s seat with 6-way manual adjustment. Using this, you’ll be able to find your ideal seating position behind the ten and two. This will be important whether you’re headed on a long road trip, or even just down the street for some groceries.

In terms of cargo-carrying, the CR-V also impresses. Behind the second-row seats, you will find 39.2 cubic feet of cargo room for your shopping bags from the trip to the mall, or your luggage for your next weekend adventure to the mountains.

You’ll also have the ability to extend your cargo-carrying abilities. Just use the easy fold-down 60/40 split rear seatback to create up to 75.8 cubic feet of cargo volume. This functionality is perfect for the occasional transport of larger items—larger furniture, for instance, if you just picked up a new piece, or even have an upcoming move.
