2019 Honda CR-V Aces New Pedestrian-Detection Test

By Justin Cupler | February 21st, 2019

The 2019 Honda CR-V was already an IIHS Top Safety Pick thanks to its great crash-test scores and high-performing automatic emergency braking system. As usual, the IIHS is at it again, adding another new test to the mix: the pedestrian detection and crash prevention test.

This test not only includes the previous forward-crash-prevention test from before, but it not adds a vehicle’s ability to detect pedestrians on the road and brake before hitting them. The rating system includes three tests: a person crossing the street, a person walking with traffic, and a child darting from behind a parked car.

In this testing, the CR-V earned a “Superior” rating as it issued a warning and stopped the vehicle in the simulation of an adult crossing the street. It also performed well enough in the other tests to be one of just four vehicles to earn the “Superior” rating.

Now you can keep the pedestrians walking the streets of Rochester, New York safer with the 2019 Honda CR-V. Head down to Garber Honda serving Henrietta and Pittsford today to see what else the 2019 CR-V has to offer. Can’t make it in?
