The new assessment protocol urges carmakers to give the best safety practices in the region and has been in effect since January 1, 2017. The remarkable results show Honda’s commitment in ensuring safety for everyone sharing the road.The All-New CR-V achieved 5-star safety rating from an outstanding overall score of 88.8 out of 100. The new ASEAN NCAP Assessment includes a frontal offset impact test, side impact test, and evaluation of safety features such as the Honda SENSING.

The All-New CR-V SX Diesel 9AT AWD comes with Honda’s advanced driving assist system called Honda SENSING.

It also provides warnings to the driver and supports the driver in avoiding or mitigating the severity of a collision. The SX Diesel 9AT AWD, S Diesel 9AT, and 2.0 S CVT variants are also equipped with Honda LaneWatch, a unique system that displays an additional 80 degree view of the right side of the vehicle from the side mirror view using a camera built into the passenger-side mirror. Both technologies received awards from the “Safety Technology” car maker category at the ASEAN NCAP Grand Prix Awards in 2016 and 2014 respectively.
