New Honda CRV Secures 5 Stars Safety Rating In Euro NCAP
The All Director Collision Safety feature with next generation Advanced Capability Engineering body structure on the new Honda CRV enables equitable distribution of collision energy which in turn reduces force transferred to passenger cell and ensures superior frontal, side and rear crash protection. The 2019 Honda CRV gets the Honda sensing, which is a combination of radar and camera information along with sensors that is used to warn the driver of potentially dangerous conditions. The standard driver assistance features offered on the Honda CRV are multi angle rear view camera, lane watch, blind spot detection and six air bags.
The NCAP report on Adult Occupant safety feature states, “The passenger compartment of the CR-V remains stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. Honda showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sitting in different positions. Protection of the passenger dummy was good for all critical body areas. In the full-width rigid barrier test, protection of the driver and rear passenger was good or adequate for all critical body areas. In the side barrier test, protection of all critical body areas was good and the CR-V scored maximum points. Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash injury in the event of a rear-end collision.”
Powering the new Honda is a four cylinder, 1.6 litre i-DTEC engine which churns out a power of 120 PS at 4,000 rpm and produces a peak torque of 300 Nm at 2,000 rpm. A nine speed ZF automatic transmission gets paired to the engine. The other engine option is a 2.0 litre i-VTEC petrol engine, which delivers 154 PS power at 6,500 rpm and 189 Nm torque at 4,300 rpm and comes with CVT transmission.
